Sarchu, also known as Sir Bhum Chun is a halting place on the Leh-Manali Highway, on the boundary between Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir in India. It is located at an altitude of 4,290 m between Baralacha La to the south and Lachulung La to the north. The place is an important overnight stop for tourists and travelers on the 475 km stretch between Manali and Leh. Surcha come into focus during May to September every year when the snow thaws on this route thus making the place a transit camp site in the Himalyas on the Leh-Manali Highway.

Close to the banks of the Tsarap Chu River is an Indian Army camp. Tented basic accommodation and food are available during the time when highway remains open (June to October). During winter, when snow blocks the high passes along the road the highway as well as the camp remain closed. The spot is often used as a starting point for the difficult trek into the Zanskar region of Ladakh.
