Located at a distance of around 140 km from Leh, Panamic village lies on the road to the Siachen Glacier, the highest battlefield in the world and hence acts as an excellent stopover enroute the base camp. It is also known for the Hot Spring that are said to have medicinal values and can cure many skin problems. Another point of interest is a very old monastery across the river called Murgi. Panamic also acts as the base for the trek to Ensa Gompa. After taking a permit from Partapur village near Hunder, tourists can also visit Siachin base camp from here. Just before the village, one can also find the holy Yarab Tso located in the middle of pocket formed by the surrounding mountains.
Located in Panamic Gogma, which is the upper area of the village, this homestay lies right on the Siachen Base Camp road serving as an excellent point of halt in your itinerary. With the Indian Government finally opening the civilian access to Siachen Base Camp, a day trip to the base camp and then coming back will be an excellent option for any guest who wants to go there. The house is also just 4 km away from the renowned Panamic Hot Spring and to the diversion for Murgi village that has a famous monastery and a small waterfall. The homestay has been functioning for quite some time when bikers on their journey ahead used to spend the night and leave the next morning. Then eventually the hosts thought of formally converting their house into a homestay. The house has a large common room for groups and a double occupancy room for couple.
