About Sarchu

Sarchu (also known as Sir Bhum Chun) is a major halt point with tented accommodation in the Himalayas on the Leh-Manali Highway. Sarchu lies on the boundary of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. Sarchu closely resembles Ladakh with its barren splendor. It is situated between Baralacha La to the south and Lachulung La to the north, at an altitude of 4,290 m.  Sarchu was an important trading point in the ancient Silk Route. This is a high camp bereft of any habitation except for the tented retreats that are to be found to the right of the road in a single row in peak tourist season. It’s also a place where acclimatization blues hit many traveller.
