ANI reported that the PM is presently at a forward base of the Indian Army at Nimu, Ladakh. The PM is interacting with personnel of the Indian Army, ITBP, and Indian Air Force.

The Nimu forward base is located at 11,000 feet from sea level. This base, located amidst very difficult terrain, is surrounded by the Zanskar range and Indus River. As per reports, the Nimu base is used as a staging ground to acclimatise Indian troops for duty at Ladakh.

It is notable here that while it was speculated that COAS Naravane and CDS Bipin Rawat may visit Ladakh soon, the arrival of PM Narendra Modi is a surprise. Due to the high altitude, difficult terrain and lack of oxygen in the region with harsh atmospheric conditions, visit of national leaders in the area is rather rare.
