Srinagar to Kargil
Riders morning always rises up with new challenges.
Head towards the Zujila Pass (3,530m) and enter the Ladakh region.
From Sonmarg the landscape starts changing dramatically all the way till the famous ZojiLa pass (11,640ft), roads on the both side of the pass will be in bad condition.
This is also the toughest few kms of the entire Srinagar - Leh highway, beyond which tarmac is fantastic. Within an hour of crossing Zoji La, you would be at Drass. In the summer months, here the locals love to indulge in their favourite sport – polo.
A few kms beyond Drass is the Drass war memorial, built in the memory of fallen soldiers in the 1999 Kargil war and a must visit. From here it is a straight run to Kargil and you will be there in less than an hours’ time. Kargil is the intended pit stop for the majority of travelers.
