Fotoksar is around 165 kilometres (103 mi) from the nearest airport city of Leh. While driving towards Lamayuru monastery from Leh, you turn left towards Wanla leaving the main Kargil-Leh highway. After 3 hours of driving, you will reach the foot of Sisir-La pass (4,760 metres (15,620 ft)). Drive further and beyond the pass, you’ll get a great view of this remote village. The Sisir-La pass is open only in summers. So, in winters this village is cut off from the outside world.
