Sarchu, which lies in the border of Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh is usually chosen as an overnight stop for people who travel along the Leh-Manali Highway. It is at a distance of 222 kilometres from Manali and 252 kilometres from Leh.
Located at an altitude of 4,290 metres, Sarchu is also called as Sir Bhum Chun. It lies between the Baralacha La mountains in the south and Lachulung La in the north. As it is located at a high altitude with rough patches of roads, it takes about two days to cross it. Thus, travellers and tourists camp in Sarchu to unwind.
The camping site on the Himalayan mountain range is located in the Leh-Manali highway and offers a dual view of nature. Many semi-permanent camps are run between May and October from where one can leisurely adore the scenic beauty. It is exciting to know that Sarchu was a major trading point in the Silk Route. It remains popular among nomadic tribes, traders and adventurists.
