I had always heard about the different colors of rivers, & how, at the confluence, one can notice the distinction. But it came alive for me only at the confluence of the Indus & Zanskar rivers. The Indus is of a muddy brown color while Zanskar is a slaty grey. The confluence is calm, despite the fact that Zanskar is a river that has rapids. You can try river-rafting too. In winter, it is known for its Chadar trek, i.e., trek on the frozen river. The view on the way to the confluence is impressive too. Must must see!

The Confluence – Indus & Zanskar - At times, at the Sangam, the Indus River can be seen as shiny blue while the Zanskar river is dirty green. In the summer season, Zanskar is swollen and rapid, while Indus is comparatively calmer. In the winters, it is quite the opposite. Zanskar slows down, its flow is light and is completely frozen at a lot of places, enabling the legendary Chadar Trek. While Indus flows fast, with ice floating on it. Be it the summer or the winter season, the confluence of these two magnificent rivers is not a sight to be missed when you are in Ladakh. It is a remarkable depiction of nature’s subtle magical nuances. ⠀

You have to see it to believe it. The confluence of the Indus and Zanskar river is nothing but natures miracle. What stands out is that the water in these rivers are two different shades and is sight when they merge. It is also a great location for rafting.

Traveling along the highway, this is a really pretty view. The waters of the 2 rivers are different colors. The mountains behind are lovely. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here but certainly worth a stop if you are passing by.
