Famous for/as: Trekking
The town of Dras, located in Kargil district of Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir is often called as ‘The Gateway to Ladakh’. The town is a popular tourist destination of the state and is also labelled as the coldest place in the subcontinent. Second to Siberia in the severity of its winter, the town lies at a distance of 60 km from Kargil, where the infamous war between India and Pakistan took place.

The region of Dras is popular among tourists and frequented by many mainly because of its strategic location, as the town serves as a gateway to the other cities, towns and hill stations in the state too.

The region of Dras is mainly popular for its rugged landscape, and adventure buffs can try their hands at trekking through the mountains. The Suru Valley, which is located a small distance away from the town of Dras, is the main destination for trekkers, who traverse along the sub range in order to reach this valley. You can also take a trek to the holy region of Amarnath, which lies near Dras. This trek will span a time of three days and you will be required to cover a high pass that is located at an altitude of 5200 m. You can reach Dras by booking Srinagar packages.
