Second Coldest Inhabited Place in the World - Sign - Leh to Srinagar road - Kashmir

Drass (3230 m), 60 km west of Kargil on the road to Srinagar, is a small township lying in the centre of the valley of the same name.­ It has become famous as the second coldest inhabited place in the world by virtue of the intense cold that descends upon the valley along with repeated snowfalls during winters.­ Winter temperature is sometimes known to plummet to less than -40 °C.­ The record low was -60 °C in 1995.­
