With lofty snow-capped mountains, rugged terrains and deep valleys, this union territory in the Trans-Himalayan region of India is one of the highest and most picturesque destinations in the country. While there are so many fascinating spots in this region that can catch the eye of the wanderlust, the river confluence of Zanskar and Indus is nothing short of a glimpse of heaven.The green-tinged Indus river originates in the Tibetan Plateau near the Manasarovar range, whereas the shiny blue Zanskar has its source in the Zanskar valley. Both the rivers kiss each other near the scenic Nimmu valley, that falls between Leh and Kargil. The rivers are clearly distinguished by their colours and the confluence can be best viewed during the spring-summer months, from March to May.

This place is about an hour's drive away from Leh on the Leh-Srinagar highway - NH1. The fast flowing Zanskar meets the slow, meandering Sindhu at what is locally know as the "Sangam Point". Rafting options are available from here, which is the world's highest rafting point. Cannot get into the water, too dangerous. There is a small restaurant at this point - only Maggi was available when we visited.

There are many attractions on the way to this place - The Hall of Fame museum, The Magnetic Hill, and a couple of other view points. Worth spending a couple of hours.

we rode on a bike from leh until here , this place is on the kargil highway and the road is absolutely spectacular. this sangam point is so distinct and beautiful. you can sit by the bench and watch this miracle of nature . there is. a cafe there and we also witnessed rafters end their rides here. try to head there by Bike if possible (stop at the gurudwara as well )

the confluence is quite amazing. it is easily viewed from the main highway. the colours of both rivers are different and they change in the course of the year. actually the Indus seems to brake and flow in reverse as the Zanskar flow overtakes it

Place is on Leh-Kargil highway about 40kms from Leh. Afternoons can be very hot, get touristy with lots of cars and people at same time, eating options are not that good, avoid using washrooms to save your life. If weather is soothing, you can spent some time there sitting by the river.
Rafting is a major attraction here, sometimes the queue is long and you might need to wait 1 hour as well.

What a beautiful place to visit
it's completely different than other confluences around the world due to surroundings and Rafting is another attraction there.
It was worth visiting and visited second time there.

Since this is one of the first activities after reaching Leh, the journey is beautiful and surreal. The tide takes you a bit away from the town where you can checkout the vast expanse of land.
