India is home to many beautiful landscapes. On the top, there is beautiful Kashmir Valley and in its corner, we are having tall standing Leh, Ladakh and Siachen. The Siachen Glacier is on another end of the Line of Control, which separates India from Pakistan.
After ‘Operation Meghdoot’, in the year 1984 Siachen was the main reason why this place became a reason for conflict. There was no civilian movement there since then.
However, things are gradually changing for the tourists visiting Leh & Ladakh. As per the recent updates, Siachen is now officially open for the tourists.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was in Siachen for the inauguration of Colonel Chewang Rinchen Bridge at Shyok River in Ladakh on Monday. At that time, he made the following announcement.
Ladakh has tremendous potential in Tourism. Better connectivity in Ladakh would certainly bring tourists in large numbers.
The Siachen area is now open for tourists and Tourism. From Siachen Base Camp to Kumar Post, the entire area has been opened for Tourism purposes.

It is noteworthy that many people visit Leh & Ladakh. But a visit to Siachen wasn’t allowed citing war reasons. However, now there is a new addition to the list of tourist spots in India.
