Kargil town

Kargil , Jammu and Kashmir

A town after which a war has been named, Kargil is today one of the most memorable and historic places in India. We have all heard of battles that happened in the past and how places have gone down in history due to those very battles. With Kargil, this nation has experienced it in the recent past. The memories of Kargil is fresh in everyones mind and this is a great land which has seen brave soldiers give up their lives to defend the land. Located in Jammu and Kashmir, this is the second largest town in Ladakh after Leh. This is also a place which is permanently cold. Located right in the Himalayas this place sometimes has a temperature of -40 degrees in the winter and thus is not very feasible time to visit it. The war here happened on a ridge of 10 km length and was as high as 5000 m. One of the places which are nearly uninhabitable, it showcased the bravery of many as they defended their nation. There is a very missed culture of the Dards and the Tibetans here. People here were mostly of the Tibetan Buddhism faith before the Muslim preachers entered the land. Today the land is majorly Muslim dominated. Thus the architecture here is an eclectic mix of the Tibetan and Muslim architecture. This makes the whole land extremely interesting. Today this is a place which exceeds all expectations. One of the greatest tourist attractions today in Ladakh, this place opens up to the Suru valley and the view is so breathtaking, it will leave you absolutely stunned. All the strife could not touch the beauty that is part of this land. Kargil is a place you should visit just to experience beauty in its raw form.
