Srinagar May 13 (KINS): The Hajj pilgrims from Jammu and Kashmir will leave for Saudi Arabia from first week of next month and their departure dates are being finalised.
Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.
Executive Officer J&K Abdul Salam Mir said the Hajj pilgrims will start leaving for Saudi Arabia for Hajj 2023 from first week of June. He said the departure date of pilgrims are being finalised and will be issued shortly.
