The river flows through northern Ladakh in India and the Ghangche District of Gilgit Baltistan of Pakistan spanning some 550 km (340 mi).
Shyok River literally means “The River of Death” in Yarkandi Uyghur, due to the wildness and the deadly beauty of this river. Also the route to this river is a difficult one. During the day, one can sit on the bank and enjoy the sight of crystal clear blue fresh water flowing through the valley.
