Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers, Leh

4.3
#5 of 125 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. Before you head to Leh, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Leh trip itinerary maker website, to make sure you see all that Leh has to offer, including Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers.

  • I was lucky enough to see the confluence fully frozen, but before the frozen trek of the Zanskar began.  more »
