Q. What is it like to travel to kargil?

The question is pretty vague to answer but I am just writing down my experience. On 29th July 2013, I took the government bus from Srinagar to Leh. It had a overnight stop at Kargil and then it continues its journey to Leh, the next day.√?¬†The road from Srinagar to Kargil passes through the camp of Amarnath Yatra and you would come across the Kargil War Memorial -√?¬† located in Dras, in the foothills of the Tololing Hill, about 5 km from the city centre. The Kargil town is like any other town in the Ladakh Region - may be bigger. It has a big bus stand, hotels, restaurants and good bakeries. It is a junction from which you can go to Leh or Srinagar or to Padum in Zanskar Valley so it is bit crowded with tourists during the peak season. In fact, I decided to go to Padum rather than Leh from Kargil.√?¬†It was quite a normal experience to travel to the place and the locals were pretty friendly.√?¬†
