Kargil is a beautiful destination located in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is surrounded by majestic mountains, glaciers, and valleys, making it an ideal place for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts. Here are some popular day trip options in Kargil:
Kargil Victory Camp:
If you are someone who loves to camp in the outdoors, then ditch your plan of staying in a hotel and do something offbeat. Pay homage to the Kargil War Heroes by camping along the Drass River at the frontiers, in the shadow of Tiger Hill and Tololing peaks.
Night Photography Trip:
Moonlit townscapes, starry skies gleaming above the mighty mountains, and the moonlight dancing on the vicious Suru River make for a perfect trip for shutterbugs. Carry your camera and head out to some of the best spots for the best shots. And there’s always time to find new spots.
Henasku, also known as Zbayul in the past, is a hidden village along the Leh-Kargil highway steeped in history and heritage. Explore the ancient fort ruins and the Lhonpo house, and experience living in a local Ladakhi home. Drive from Kargil and hike to the village, have a traditional lunch at a local’s home, and head back to Kargil, or stay overnight at a homestay.
Buddha Trail Apati Village:
Drive to the village of Apati, just outside Kargil town, and follow the trail to one of the oldest Maitreya Buddha statues, a 7th-century rock relief.
Cycling with the Moon:
The best way to spend a full moon night in Kargil is to take this amazing night trail and explore the Kargil nightscape.
Start at the Roots Cafe along with your trail guide. The timing is subject to the rise of the moon. En route, stop at ideal spots for viewing beautiful nightscapes.
