Urgo is a small, high-altitude village in the Leh district of Ladakh, India. It is located near the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the disputed border between India and China. Urgo is one of the northernmost villages in India, and is home to a small civilian population of Baltis, who make a living by apricot farming and yak rearing.
The village is located at an altitude of 4,335 meters (14,222 feet) above sea level, and has a very harsh climate. The winters are extremely cold, with temperatures often dropping below -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit). The summers are also very short, and the village experiences very little precipitation throughout the year.
The Indian government has been investing heavily in Urgo and other border villages in Ladakh in recent years. This investment has been made in order to improve the infrastructure and living conditions in these villages, and to make them more attractive to civilians. The government has also been working to promote tourism in Urgo and other border villages.
Despite the harsh climate, Urgo is a beautiful and peaceful village. It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains, and offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
