Shargole is a picturesque village about 35 Kmts on the right side of Kargil- Leh
road with a mixed population of Budhist and Muslim. The main attraction is a
small monastery perched in a cliff. The interior of this small monastery has
very beautiful wall paintings.
An exciting four-days trek from Shergole leads, to Suru Valley passing Safi La and Rusila Passes, into the Suru Valley. Safi a high-altitude village, has a mixed Muslim –Budhist population and lies between the two passes. From the Rusila one can trek either to Sankoo or, southwards, through the glacier-rich Rangdum Pass, to the Rangdum village and monastery.
