Enjoying the peak grandeur of the very beautiful Nubra Valley, the village of Panamik is India’s northernmost point accessible to the foreigners and the civilians from India. Located close to the Siachin Glacier, which is also the world’s highest battleground, the village is best known for its hot sulphur springs believed to contain healing qualities. Tourists from all over the world visit these springs to take refreshing dips in the curative waters.

Situated at the height of 10,442 ft. on the bank of River Nubra, the village offers breathtaking views of green landscapes and snow-laden peaks. Panamik is also known for its two-hump Bactrian Camel that offer adventure ride to the visitors. Pashmina goats in the region are the source for the very attractive pashmina, used in weaving shawls and other items. Fields of barley, valleys of flowers and orchards of walnuts, apples, apricots and almonds add inimitable magnificence to the entire region.

Home to an old Buddhist stupa, the village is also the trekking base for the 250-year old Ensa Gompa. Carpets, shawls, woollens, Tibetan artefacts and horticulture products can be purchased at the local markets. INR 20 must be paid to take a dip in the Panamik spring.
