“The frozen Chadar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We walked on the frozen Chadar, where it meets the Indus river. Incredible experience to walk on that massive expanse of a river. The Indus was not frozen (it never does apparently), but the Zanskar river freezes over in the winter. Awesome!

“Best part of the drive to Lamayura.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The views are awesomely beautiful, wild and dramatic and the Indus River as it flows from Tibet is a interesting blue color. Snow- capped Mountains peek up from behind lower mountains and the road at this point is pretty good. THis is the prettiest part of the road to Lamayura at least it was when we drove there.

This was my very 1st enconter with the awesome beauty of Ladakh. Take time to go right on the banks of the confluence. Beautiful.

“What a confluence!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Visiting the confluence of the Indus and the Zanskar rivers is exciting because you can clearly see that it is a confluence, as the water of the Indus is pinkish in colour and the water of the Zanskar is brownish. So it is possible to actually see the two rivers merging. I did not go rafting here, but those who were rafting seemed to be having a great time. The drive to the confluence is also very scenic as you follow the Indus River. Well worth the trip! It is on the way to Likir and Lamayuru, so it is a convenient pitstop.
