  • It travels at the height of around 3,528 meters.
  • After Fotu La, it is the second-highest pass on the Srinagar-Leh National Highway.

Zojila Tunnel:

  • It would improve safety, eliminate avalanches from the 434-km Srinagar-Kargil-Leh Section of NH-1, and cut the trip duration from more than 3 hours to only 15 minutes.
