This video inlcudes the route from Kargil to Leh via NH1.
Ladakh (land of high passes) is a region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir that currently extends from the Siachen Glacier in the Karakoram range to the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. Ladakh is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture.
Kargil and Leh resides in the Ladakh region connected by NH-1.
Distance: 220 km
The route between Kargil and Leh is very beautiful.
Mulbekh is A VILLAGE around 45 km from Kargil on the way to Leh. The monastery contains, statue of Maitreya Buddha carved on a big rock. Unfortunately, the lower part of the statue is partly obscured by a small temple built in 1975.
Fotula Top is the highest point on the Leh-Srinagar highway with an altitude of 13,478ft (4,108m) A drive through the pass is said to be a beautiful journey but it was raining and we had to face an unexpected fall of temperature. We were literally shivering.
Lamayuru is a small village in Ladakh, midway between Kargil and Leh . Moonlike landscapes are its attractions.
The apple and apricot farms aided the beauty of this route. Thankfully it was the harvesting time and We got the oportunity to taste the real fruits. Highly recommended to get few if you are travelling in this route.
Magnet Hill is a Cyclops hill located near Leh . The layout of the area and surrounding slopes create the appearance of a hill. The hill road is actually a downhill road. Objects and cars on the hill road may appear to roll uphill in defiance of gravity when they are, in fact, rolling downhill.
Leh is a ditrict in the Ladakh region and the head quarter resides in Leh city.
The city was beyond our expectations. Never expected Leh as such an advanced town with 4 lane roads, AIRPORT and other advanced facilities. The main market and the nearby Tibetan market can give you anything you want.
Because of The people, Tibetan culture, and the beautiful nature Leh is undoubtfully a must visit place in India
