Sarchu is a small village on Leh – Manali highway. The journey along the Manali-Leh highway at high altitude and variable road conditions, normally takes two days, so travelers and tourists use this spot as an overnight stop. It rests at an altitude of 4290 m above sea level with Baralacha La to its south and Lachulung La to its north. Travelers cannot access Sarchu during winters as the highway remains closed throughout this time. The route opens between the months of May and September, when the snow melts.
