    Near Tololing, we could see the famous Tiger Hill from a distance. One of the most important and difficult battle our soldiers won during Kargil war to recapture this peak.

    At some places the Srinagar - Leh road is too close to LOC and comes under direct view of the Pakistani forces. BRO has built very thick, almost 20 ft high walls to protect the road and vehicles from shelling from the other side.
