“Snowy Zojila Pass”
Review of Zojila Pass

Zojila Pass
Ranked #1 of 12 things to do in Sonamarg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2017

- This is one of the most breathtaking , scary hilly road in Kashmir. Your vehicle is only allowed till Sonnmarg. After that you have to book local taxi to visit further journey like Zojila Pass and Zero Point. Be very careful while booking taxi, Taxi drivers may charge you very high, so you have to handle it patiently and be a good bargainer.
This pass leads you to Leh Ladakh region. But many people go only to visit Zero Point and experience the scary Zojila Pass. When we reach to the Zero Point there was heavily snow fall, temperature was very low. We could not stay there for more than 5 mins, so we headed back towards Sonamarg . Though it was a very scary journey we didn’t forget this memorable Journey

I read many reviews on Zozila pass and always feared the dreaded roads and landslides, which that area is prone to...however, when we crossed this perilous pass, barring an occasion or two, didnt face any issues... perhaps our driver had a good experience of driving through Zozila... though the roads are bad, weather was good and we enjoyed good view of the valley and gorges...
At the pass, we took an hour break for maggie and visit to zero point... there was snow all around and temperature was dipping every minute, but this raised our enthusiasm... we clicked numerous photos... with white snow background...the best maggie of the trip was served here...though a tad bit expensive...loved the 'warmth' this place offers amidst bone chilling cold...
There is a makeshift washroom for females but prone to long queues...overall, Zozila is a wonderful place for a quick photo and snacks break...

Taxi drivers will ask Rs 7000 to 8000 for a 35 km round Trip to zero point.
You should not give more than Rs2000-2500. (bad experience in dealing with taxi drivers). It's better to take pony and go to nearby places (Dnt forget to bargain here as well ,as they will ask 1000- 1500 for each pony ).
Its better to go to near by river and natural beauty and capture some pictures Instead of wasting money visiting tourist spots.
