Just like many passing villages, Karu is another one in Ladakh. The plains of Karu must be crossed to reach the junction of Chang La, an important pass to reach the famous lakes Pangong and Tso Moriri. Karu is also a few kilometers away from Hemis which is home to the Hemis monastery, and the Hemis National Park.

Leh Manali Highway
A highway in Northern India, it connects Leh in the Ladakh region of the state of Jammu and Kasmir with Manali in Himachal Pradesh. The highway remains open only for around four months during summer when the snow gets cleared and there is no fear of landslides. Again when winter arrives and there is snow all around, the highway remains no more motorable. At this time a part of the highway connects Zanskar in Ladakh to Lahaul and Spiti Valley in the Himachal Pradesh.
