Leh , Jammu and Kashmir

Sarchu is one of those absolutely beautiful places that make you feel like you are on the top of the world. That is probably technically true since the Himalayas will always allow you to proclaim it. But what makes you completely awestruck here is theun diluted beauty of the place. This is a place that is situated right in the heart of the mighty mountains and it makes every person who comes here feel like the luckiest person alive. Sarchu is a tent and a camp on the border of Himachal Pradesh and the Ladakh district. This is a place that all the adventure loving people flock to when they want to go for the very difficult Zanskar trek.This is a trek that will give you the panorama of some of the most beautiful mountain peaksin this region. It seems like they are just at your doorstep. Sarchu makes it possible for you to enjoy the mighty mountains without a single hindrance. The journey along the Manali-Leh highway at high altitude and variable road conditions, normally takes two days, so travellers and tourists use this spot as an overnight stop. An Indian army camp is sited nearby on the banks of the Tsarap Chu river. This is a place that is only open during the summer months because the snow completely blocks this place during the winters. And these are months of glory in Sarchu. A place that makes you truly experience the wonders of the Himalayan peaks, the start of the Zanskar trek itself takes your breath away.
