The Sangam (confluence) of the Indus (Sindhu) and Zanskar rivers is near Nimmu on the Leh-Srinagar route.
The Zanskar river, which flows from the Zanskar valley in the Union Territory of Ladakh, joins the Indus river near Nimmu, providing visitors with a magnificent vista. The Indus is Ladakh’s lifeline, irrigating the valley’s arid terrain.
A significant number of people visit the Sangam site to take in the natural splendour. This is also a river rafting location where thrill-seekers gather to enjoy the excitement of river rafting.
At Sangam point, the dirty water of one river joins the turquoise waters of another, creating a stunning picture.
A new route, Manali – Darcha – Shinkula pass – Padum (Zanskar Valley) – Nimmu, is being built and will connect to the Leh-Srinagar motorway at Sangam.
