Zoji La Pass, a high mountain passage, is situated on the national highway that connects Srinagar to Leh and lies about 10 km away from the golden meadows of Sonamarg. With its elevation of 11575 feet, this pass prides in being the second highest pass on the highway.
This mountainous pass is closed during winters due to excessive snowfall. To avoid inconvenience caused to visitors and make the pass accessible throughout the year, the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is working extensively. The Beacon Force unit of this organisation looks after the maintenance of Zoji La during winters.
