Located at a distance of about 140 Km from Leh, the capital of Ladakh and at the height of 3183 meters above sea level is the northern most part where the foreigners are allowed.
The road further leads to Siachan base camp, the highest battle field in the world. Panamik lies on the bank of Nubra river and is well known for its hot water spring, Pashmina goats and the bactarian camels which have two humps and were a great mode to transverse in the silk route. Although everything about this place is captivating, the view of the sun capped peaks and green valleys is truly mesmerizing. The panorama is more enchanting during the month of September and October when the trees turn yellow with a tinge of red. The village also is a base camp for trekkers heading to Ensa Gompa. You can also indulge in shopping for some beautiful Pashmina shawls, Kashmiri carpets, woolen socks, apricots, apples, walnuts and some exquisite Kashmiri or Tibetan artifacts. Also, don't rely on public vehicles here as there is no frequent service for the same, though there are drivers of trucks and military vehicles who help in the time of need. And not just transportation, there are limited number of places to stay at. You can only find rest houses with basic amenities.
