This hill right here is of great significance. During Kargil War Pakistan was able to see the military headquarters of the 56 Brigade, the main Indian force in charge of the area very clearly. NH1D is a quite clear vision, as well. National Highway 1D is astonishingly the main route to Siachen Glacier, Srinagar and also connects to Leh (this route is v pretty btw). This route is the main supply (till now, as far as my knowledge after visiting the place is concerned) for Kargil sector. Letting this hill go would've been a major threat to India which the military couldn't have risked. Pakistan also infiltrated other parts in Kargil and India definitely needed a good surveillance to destroy all these posts which was only possible with the help Tiger Hill. India started shelling Tiger Hill to force out Pakistan army, we went with 18 Grenadiers, 2 Naga, and 8 Sikh regiment. A troop of about 18 soldiers had to attack the hill by climbing up 1000 feet. 10 Pakistani soldiers were killed, and 2 escaped; 5 Indian soldiers were also killed. The main hero of the battle was Indian Soldier Yogendra Singh Yadav who was later awarded with the highest award of the Indian Army Param Vir Chakra. Now, Tiger Hill is obviously a part of India.
