Shagma Karphu is a small yet scenic village that forms a part of the beautiful Zanskar Valley in Ladakh. This hamlet is the first stopover destination while approaching Zanskar from Suru Valley. The landscape of this village is dominated by sprawling marshlands, which are formed due to the torrent of the river water, caused by melting of snow during summers. This flat plain expands up to 15 kilometres till a less-known place called Gilmatongas. Most of the inhabitants of this village are Buddhists, who earn their living by cultivating barley. Commanding a splendid vista of the Zanskar Valley, with soaring mountain pinnacles in the background, this village is a sheer delight for nature lovers.
