Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers, Leh

4.3
#5 of 77 in Things to do in Leh
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.

  • The 1st day was spent acclimatising and on the 2nd day we proceeded to Pathar Sahib, the Magnetic hill followed by this picturesque point where 2 rivers meet from India and China and form a 3rd river ...  more »
  • Well, I don't know why this place is so popular... If you go there, a short stop will be enough. You can admire a few minutes the mixture of waters of different colors... The most interesting is to meet and discuss with Indian tourists, or other countries. Or the truckers! But watch out for cars when crossing!
