Doda River
About Doda River

The Doda River or the Stod River is a river which is about 79 kms long, it forms the Stod Valley in the Zanskar valley of the Ladakh region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The Doda River is famous for adventure sports. Rafting events are organised throughout the length of the Doda and the Zanskar.

 
Geography of Doda River

The Doda River rises from the Drang-Drung Glacier near Pensi La, a mountain pass off the Zanskar-Kargil road; the Doda River is also known as Stod River.. The Drang-Drung Glacier is a river of ice and snow by itself and is the largest glacier other than the Siachen Glacier in Ladakh outside the Karakoram Range. It gives rise to a mountain peak named "Doda Peak", 21,490 ft (6,550 metres) high, and it is the namesake for the Doda district, which lies in the back side of the glacier. After rising from its source, the Doda River flows southeast down along the Kargil - Zanskar road in the main Zanskar valley, through the towns of Kushol, Abran, Phey, and Akshu. The river then passes a confluence with its tributary, the Tsarap River, at Padum, the capital of Zanskar. Together, these two rivers form the Zanskar River which is a tributary of the Indus River.

The Doda River contributes to the minimal agricultural production of the Zanskar valley by providing irrigation to the fields of wheat, peas, buckwheat and barley. Accessible in the summer, the Pensi La mountain pass at the source of the river receives heavy snowfall along with the other pass Zojila, which cuts off the Stod Valley from the rest of the country during winter, and the river freezes during this season. The river source at Pensi La lies 350 kms east from the Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir.
