Located at close to 11,000 feet above sea level, the picture-perfect valley is one of the top tourist spots of India. You will experience the wonderful feeling of travelling along beautiful roads with greenish rivers meandering along, the high mountains keeping watch, and not to forget the cool breeze providing great company. The valleys around Drass town offer a number of trekking options which are favourites with the hikers. Off you go to nearby villages and a valley to do some sightseeing and enjoy the magnificent creations of nature. With temperatures plummeting to levels nearly 25 counts below zero during the winter, it is one of the coldest places in the world. Summer at Drass is from June to September, and that is the best time to visit. Drass town, which is the main town of the valley, is approximately 140 kilometres from Srinagar on the way to Kargil. Jammu Tawi, at approximately 400 kilometres, is the nearest railway station, and Srinagar is the nearest airport.
