Zoji La Pass:
Zoji La is a high mountain pass located in the Kargil district of Ladakh.
The pass links Leh and Srinagar and provides an important link between Union Territories of Ladakh and Kashmir.
Zoji la is known as the “Mountain Pass of Blizzards”.
Zojila pass remains closed during winters due to heavy snowfall, cutting off Ladakh region from Kashmir.
In 2018, the Zojila tunnel project was launched. The tunnel is Asia’s longest and strategic bi-directional tunnel, which will provide all-weather connectivity between Srinagar, Kargil and Leh.
