Zojila Pass Ladakh

An important link between the Srinagar and Leh, Zoji La on the National Highway is nerve wrecking and test endurance at every turn. The pass is located at an altitude of 3528 m (11, 649 ft) above the sea level in the western section of the Himalayan mountain ranges. And one should strictly avoid it during the winter season as it remains closed due to a snow storm but the Border Roads Organization (BRO) works keeps on maintaining it. Zoji La has played an important role in the history of India as it was seized by the Pakistani raiders in 1948 so as to capture Ladakh.
