... climb the Zoji La Pass (3529m). Suddenly we come to a roadblock manned by two soldiers. Apparently they are about to blast above the road and we will have to wait from 11.30 till 3.00. At least the scenery is stunning and there is a small amount of shade. At about 12.15 there is a blast and a huge cloud of dust from around the next corner.

... us to Sonamarg, about 90 Kms from Srinagar, another 3 hours drive.
Sonamarg would be our first stop, in our journey from Srinagar towards Kargil and Ladakh.
The drive itself is spectacular, with us winding through valleys, and the tributaries of Jehlum river following us, all the way through.
After treated with yet another round of immense beauty, we reached Sonamarg, the Meadow of Gold, located at about 2800 metres above sea ...
