ZULUK " Mesmerizing Silk route"
Zuluk is only few kilometers away from the China border and has a base of Indian army. It's a small mountain hamlet with a population of about 700 most of who are Nepali. All these people had migrated to this place in search of better living as it lied on the Silk Route. But now that the trade is gone, and the land is infertile for any farming, they mostly survive on construction of roadways. But the nature has been liberal in blessing the place with huge tourism potential. The villagers have slowly started realizing that and extending their homes to tourists as home stays.
