Destination: Kargil

Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Suru River, approximately 8700 ft. above sea level, Kargil sits as the second largest town of the Leh-Ladakh region and makes for a prominent transit hub for people travelling to Leh, Srinagar and Zanskar. The town is blessed with an entrancing natural scenery peppered with lush greenery, shimmering glacial rivers and arid mountain ranges which provide for a delightful time to all the nature lovers and soul-seekers. For those travelling to Ladakh in quest of profound peace and solitude, away from the chaotic city lives must plan for their holidays in the exotic ‘Suru Valley’ which extends from Kargil all the way to up to the ‘Panzella Glacier’ and offers a blissful panorama of a countryside landscape blooming with striking orchards of mulberry, apple and apricot trees. The picturesque valley is no less than a heaven for photography geeks too and leaves them awe-struck with hypnotizing vistas of precariously hanging glaciers, snow-crested mountain peaks of ‘Nun’ & ‘Kun’ and several gurgling streams that make for a visual delight winding their way through gorgeously cultivated agricultural fields.For those who are up for some cultural exploration in Kargil, the town will surely not leave them disappointed too.
