Kargil to Srinagar


driving from Kargil to Srinagar
The drive from Kargil to Srinagar is around 7 hours, with the landscape gradually changing from deserty to lush green as you enter the valley.
Road is wide but with potholes. Zogila Pass marks the entry into the valley. The road as you ascend is excellent and wide, but the moment you start descending the road disappears and the track becomes narrow, just wide enough for one vehicle at times.

Once inside the valley, the road is beautiful and smooth. Stop and spend some time at Sonamarg and then drive all the way to Srinagar.
