    Its a long river side drive to reach here. The confluence of Indus and Zanskar river on the way is adding flavour to the drive. Nice location for photography  more »

    Nice area, very nice views of cliffs and housing. Would not spend too much time here, but a good point to stop and stretch legs.  more »
