Beautiful ride through the valley of Suru
Kargil, as the largest city in western Ladakh, is also an important traffic junction. Although most connections go from here to Leh or to Srinagar, buses run in the morning to the beautiful Suru Valley (and on to Zanskar), where the city of Panikhar is an ideal tourist destination. If you want to leave the classic circuit, this detour is an ideal trip for a few days
Riding through the Suru valley
The journey from Kargil is going smoothly, because there is still something to see. Especially in places where the valley widens. The first higher massif rises on the horizon, but it is still not the famous Nun and Kun
Sanko / Sankoo / Sanku
Halfway to Panikharu lies the town of Sanko, which serves as a refreshment / toilet break for bus lines. As everywhere in the valley of the river Suru, there are beautiful views from here. It is also the starting point for a lesser-known trek across the Wakha saddle to Rangdum
Famous panorama of Nun - Kun
Finally, the most famous view of the pair of mountain giants Nun and Kun also opens up
View of Parkachik la

Panikhar, a picturesque oasis in the Suru valley and a good starting point for short hikes or long treks, our destination. It is possible to stay here in several places
Morning in Panikharu
As everywhere in the mountains, it is best to go hiking in the dark or at dawn for better weather. The panorama of the mountains around Panikharu is breathtaking
Nun and Kun early in the morning
In Panikchar, seven thousand Nun and Kun, the highest mountains far and wide, will constantly pull your eyes
