In Ladakh, the Indus is everywhere! It's the river that Jeeps drive along from Khalsi towards Leh. It's also the river you'll see to the southeast of Leh, towards Thiksey, Hemis, Upshi, as well as on the way to Mahe and Lake Tso Moriri. It's via the Indus Valley that you'll reach the latter.
Did you know that India was named after this river? The Indus is one of 7 sacred rivers in India. You'll also find several tributaries, including the Zanskar.
The Indus, along with the Himalayas, forms part of Ladakh's landscape. It's hard to imagine the mountain range without this trans-Himalayan river. It's the collection of remarkable sights that makes the Kashmir region and Ladakh so special, with the river being at the origin of so much life and cultural developments.
