A vital link between Ladakh and Kashmir, it is just 9 km from Sonamarg and stands tall at a height of 3,528 meters or 11,575 feet. At this height the views down below are stunning and the sunsets are mesmerizing but this is a rarity as seldom you get clear skies.
Zojila Pass boasts of stunning and the most dangerous roads in the world and the various hair-pin-bends and narrow curves force many a heart to stop beating. The way to the holy Amarnath Yatra starts here and the route itself is enough to make your heart pound.
The helipad, the starting point and the route followed is clearly visible from this height. The lush greenery, the frozen river, the glaciers look stunning when you peep down towards Baltal.
The access roads are not in so good condition but driving on top is thrilling and totally satisfying. Tourists heartily recommend it saying “this experience is at least a once-in-a-lifetime” and should always be taken.
