Sarchu Village is situated at the height of 14,500 feet between Baralacha La Pass and Lachung La Pass. It is a well-known overnight resting place for tourists who cross the Manali-Leh Highway, the Sir Bhum Chun. Leh’s around 250 kilometres and Manali’s 220 km. It is a favourite adventure spot on the Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh borders.
On the banks of the Tsarap Chu River, there is an Indian military base. This road and highways along the route are blocked, and campgrounds are closed during winters.
Sarchu has historically been a key trading site on the Old Silk Road. Sarchu is another famous trek, which begins with a challenging walk into the Ladakh Zanskar area. The trip takes many days to complete, as is one of the longer walking treks. Unfortunately, there are few experts for trekking who finish this path.
Here, at an altitude of about 17,500 ft., the Tanglang La Pass is among the world’s highest motoring passes. The area is relatively quiet and offers panoramic views of the valleys around. It’s Ladakh’s second tallest mountain pass. The pass is next to the motorway Leh – Manali and is accessible by 21 loops. The pass offers a beautiful view from the main road.
With trade, nomadic tribes, and adventure seekers, Sarchu Village is still a great choice. It is encircled by beauty and beautiful vistas.
