Suru Valley, Kargil Reviews
Heaven, do I need to say more.
Nice place to visit
The Suru valley is a valley in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, which is drained by the Suru River (Indus), a powerful tributary of the Indus river.
We had planned a Force Traveller to visit Sonamarg, Kargil, Leh-ladakh which all lie moreor less in a straightline. Warning to fellow travellers. Please dont believe your travel agents. Kashmir cars dont go to Suru Valley, Rangdum or Padum, capital of Zanskar. Cars going to Zanskar dont go to leh. Kargil to Zanskar via Suru Valley takes about 16 hours for about 250 kms as there is practically no road. Carry your food. But It is photographers paradise. If you want you can avoid trekking. I have taken more than 5000 snaps but it was insufficient.
