Started early from Srinagar, we have been stopped by local police authority as Amarnath Yatra was also scheduled on same date. It was our hard time to convince authority that we are not Amarnath Yatri but going to Leh via Kargil. On the way it was very scenic and beautiful place has come where we have stopped and enjoy. Our driver tells that you have to cross Zozila Pass before 15 hours other wise you have to stay at Sonmarg. We have started our journey to Kargil via Zozilla Pass and draws. To cross Zozilla is also unique experience as rain has made earth wet and tyres are slipping out. Way to Kargil we have seen Kargil war memorial and passing through dress which is world coldest inhabited area. Choosing journey by road instead of air is a lifetime experience. Also you have time to make your self slowly adjust at high altitude and may not create health problem, which is otherwise have high chance of breathing problem.

The travel to Leh by car was really an excellent Idea. We travelled to Srinagar by plane and then took taxi for Leh. We reached Leh crossing Sonmarg, Zojilla, Kargil and drass. Road for Zojilla is very rough. We enjoyed the scenic beauty all the way. Take rest in Kargil and continue your journey to heaven the next day by early morning.
