Shyok river UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • Five soldiers lost their lives after a tank was swept away by strong water currents in the Shyok river during military training in, Depsang plains - Ladakh.

  • Rescue teams rushed to the location. 

  • However, due to high current and water levels, the rescue mission did not succeed and the tank crew lost their lives

  • The Shyok River is a tributary of the Indus River that flows through northern Ladakh and enters Gilgit–Baltistan, in Pakistan, spanning some 550 km. 

  • The Shyok River originates at the Rimo Glacier.

  • Its alignment is very unusual, originating from the Rimo glacier, it flows in a southeasterly direction and, joining the Pangong range, it takes a northwestern turn, flowing parallel to its previous path.


  • The name Shyok (or Shayog) is derived from Tibetan (shag) 'gravel' + (gyog) 'to spread' and therefore means 'gravel spreader', referring to the large quantities of gravel that the river deposits when it floods
