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.

  • Take your bike for a ride on first day in Ladakh to this place. Its good way to start your Ladakh trip. Not far from the city and the ride till the valley also offers great views. 
  • The view from the top when driving down is breathtaking. White water rafting in the waters is a very good experience.
