Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers, Leh
(4.2/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Witness the merging of a mighty river and one of its north-flowing tributaries at Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers. The main river, a regional lifeline, has a green and brown coloration, while its tributary has a particularly shiny blue color: as they meet, the combining of the colors creates a pleasing visual effect, so make sure to bring your camera. Take time to appreciate the dramatic surrounding scenery, where barren valleys and rugged peaks frame the two rivers and provide a number of natural viewpoints. Plan your Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers visit and explore what else you can see and do in Leh using our Leh vacation builder.
