Zoji La, one the most stunning sights I've ever seen in my entire life (no kidding). Though this may not be the most stunning picture clicked :) . Our driver refused to stop for us to click a good photograph. He gave us the option of either getting stuck in the snow or skidding off the edge.

It is located on National Highway 1D between Leh and Srinagar. Though often referred to as Zojila Pass in the foreign press, the correct English translation is Zoji Pass or simply Zojila, since the suffix 'La' itself means pass in several Himalayan languages.

Zoji La is 9 km (5.6 mi) from Sonamarg and provides a vital link between Ladakh and Kashmir. It runs at an elevation of approximately 3,528 metres (11,575 ft), and is the second highest pass after Fotu La on the Srinagar-Leh National Highway.
