Demchok, Tibet (China)

Demchok or "New Demchok" is a small village and military encampment in the Chinese-administered part of the disputed Demchok sector south of Aksai Chin, in the Ladakh district of occupied Kashmir. The Line of Actual Control (LAC) passes along the southeast side of the village, following a wadi just upstream from the nearby Indus River. Across the wadi, less than a kilometer away, is the Chinese-administered village, called Dêmqog, in the Ngari Prefecture within Tibet. This village was on an old route linking Ladakh and Tibet, currently closed.
