DrokhPa area is along the Indus between Khalatse and the Shayok- Indus confluence, live people, known as Drokhpa belongs to the purest of pure from Aryan race. They are tall, handsome and hospitable. Drokhpas are believed to have migrated to this area via Gilgit around 1000 year ago from Central Asia. They are different with large, beautiful eyes, sharp acquiline noses. They are culturally distinct from the rest of the Ladakhis. The greatest attraction in this area are the villages of Biama and Dah. The route follows the Indus down from Khalatse, past the villages of Domkhar, Skurbuchan and Achinathang, along a fairly good road.
In the gorge of the Indus the sun's heat, reflected off bare rocks and cliffs is frequently intense. The same heat makes it possible to take two crops every year from the fields, Fruit is also grown- apricots and apples. The special interest of this region is less the landscape than its Drokhpa inhabitants, their features are pure Indo Aryan, and they appear to have preserved their racial purity down the centuries.
