Zojila Pass

Zojila Pass is on National Highway 1 in Jammu and Kashmir. It is a high mountain pass which offers an adventurous route to travellers. It also offers some magnificent views of the mighty Himalayas. It is an enlightening journey for travellers not just because of its scenic beauty but also for its harsh history. The war between India and Pakistan has left its mark on the land. Zojila Pass has bone-chilling winters, and the pass often becomes unfit for travelling due to heavy rainfall. With the onset of spring, the weather blooms and greenery engulfs the topography of Zoji La. Zojila Pass connects Kashmir and Ladakh. It is a constant attraction among tourists who want to witness the beauty of Ladakh. It is situated at a distance of 9 km from Sonamarg. The beautiful views from Zojila Pass make it a popular tourist destination in India.
Road to Taste
 The mighty Zoji La Pass is the second highest point on the Srinagar-Leh Highway after FotuLa. This pass is located approximately 9kms from Sonamarg and numerous army convoys can be spotted at this point. It brings a surge in patriotism as soon as we see those convoys and the men guarding it.
From Zojila pass we were targeting to reach Dras and stay there. Zojila to Dras is just 40km however, we took 4 hours to reach as we got stuck at the Zojila pass. We reached Dras by the evening and visited the war memorial. Then we realized that as roads are good we can easily drive down to Kargil.

Zozi-La: 9 kms from Sonamarg is Zozi La, serving as an important link between Ladakh and Kashmir. Zozila is located at a staggering 11,580 ft, enclosed by Kashmir valley on one side and Drass valley on the other. This pass is considered to be the second highest pass after Fotu La and is said to be one of the most dangerous passes in the world.
