Drass in Kargil, Ladakh

Drass Valley is located on the road to Kargil, and it is the second coldest inhabited place in the world. Repeated snowfall in the winter plummets its temperature to less than minus 40 degrees.

The Zozila pass, the Himalayan gateway to Ladakh, is from where the Drass valley commences. Therefore, on your trip to Ladakh, you should go for a tour to Drass, which had been an important trade route for Pan-Asian trade in the yesteryears.

Trekking tours to Suru valley generally opt for Drass as the convenient base. It is a three-day trek that passes through beautiful upland villages and blooming meadows on either side of the Umbala pass.

On your tour to Drass, you can also avail yourself of the trekking trip to Amarnath. The trekking starts from Minamarg below Zozi la and takes you across the high pass. It is a 3-day long trek. Shorter treks and hikes are also undertaken from Drass to the upland villages.

Drass's inhabitants have negotiated the formidable pass for ages even when the whole sector remains snow-covered. As trade routes developed, Drass became more accessible, and tourists keen to catch a glimpse of the beauty of the Drass Valley while venturing on tour to Drass.
