A world heritage site, the valley is situated at the convergence point of Himalayan ranges, Zanskar and Western and Eastern Himalayas. Bounded by the mountain ranges and glaciers, this place unfolds the charisma and charm of nature at its best. This bio-diversity hotspot is known for its scenic beauty comprising alpine shrubs and meadows, milky white streams, snow-clad peaks and pristine air.
