The Trans Himalayan ranges in Leh surround the two rivers creating a breadthtaking and spectacular landscape for travel photographers.The mountains are more drier and arid as compared to the normal Himalayas as they belong to the Karakoram and Trans Himalayan ranges.Their different shapes and sizes create a striking effect and the two rivers take a different color due to reflection forging an analogy with the color of the sky.

It is a one hour drive from the capital city of Ladakh which can be taken as a half day entry and view point for travelers with important monastries and stupas plunging in the median.Refreshments were available luckily at the point so we were not short of food and water which is essential to elude of dehydration and altitude sickness.The vista of the confluence magnified the scenic beauty and river rafting services available for young travelers added charisma to the enchantment.
