This place is situated on the snout of the Siachen glacier, on the banks of river Nubra. Soldiers huddle themselves in igloos made of fiberglass panels, the only way to keep warm is through small kerosene stoves. The soldiers not only fight of intruders but also sub-freezing temperatures and frostbites.

Fact: Civilians are usually not allowed to go beyond Panamik. The annual Siachen civilian trek organised by the Indian Army, gives them a chance to trek up to the icy heights of the glacier.

Chandan Hembram stayed at the Ladakh Greens Hotels\. He shares: One of the best hotels I had ever stayed in and great value for money. The best rooms, most professional and friendly staff and a beautiful garden for relax in. The food here was very good. The place is very clean and the rooms provided are good and warm.
