Zojila Pass in Sonamarg

Indian National Highway 1 between Srinagar and Leh, is vastly known for Zoji La pass, in the western section of the Himalayan mountain ranges. Around 3528 m (11, 649 ft) above the sea level, the pass is 9 kms from Sonamarg and is an important link between Ladakh and Kashmir. This pass is considered to be the second highest pass after Fotu La on the Srinagar-Leh National Highway.

At the time of the Indo-Pakistani War in 1947, this pass was seized by the Pakistani raiders in 1948 while they were in the wake of capturing Ladakh. Later on 1st November, Zojila pass was captured by Indian forces under Operation Bison.

Once you reach the pass, you are going to have an amazing view of the mighty Himalayan mountains, which makes the ride worth.
