Panamik village is located around 140 km from Leh, nestled close to the Siachen Glacier, and is famous for the hot sulphur springs. These hot springs are located 10,442 feet above sea-level and believed to have medicinal properties. Traveller's need to obtain a permit to reach Panamik in Nubra Valley which is easily available from the District Magistrate's office.
