Hello, i wish to go to sonamarg from leh in the coming week. i want it to be a 10-12hr journey. I have been researching and got to know that there is a bus which halts in kargil and then proceeds for srinagar. Is there any direct way to reach sonamarg?

PS: i dont want to halt at kargil.

Yes, when the road is open, you can get a seat in a shared taxi from Leh to Srinagar, and you can get down at Sonamarg. The shared taxis only stop briefly in Kargil for a meal.

In previous years the pass at Zoji-La was open one way for part of the day and the other way the other part of the day, so the taxis would leave Leh in the afternoon, stop at Kargil for dinner, proceed up to Drass and wait for the traffic to be released around 2 am, and then you'd come down over the pass into Sonamarg in the dawn light. It was spectacularly beautiful and I've loved it every time I've done it, which is at least 6 times.

Good news: The road opened the day before yesterday.
Bad news: I saw some little news item tonight saying it was closed again by a landslide (but that might be wrong, or it might be insignificant and get cleared again tomorrow)
