Karu, Ladakh - where the flags flutter in vivid hues
Karu is a place you can not miss while on your journeys in Ladakh. It is the junction, a cross road from where you ascend to Chang La. The main road that runs here is the Leh - Manali highway.
Most times one sees chortens on the road side which stand like mute crumbling reminders. This splash of color is uniquely Karu
It is from Karu that you start for the Hemis monastery.
Leh to Karu = 45 kms
Karu to Chang La 35 kms
