The Shingo River is a tributary of the Suru River, and flows through the Ladakh region. It is created out of the confluence of Nakpo River as well as Marpo River which originates in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The Shingo river enters India and meets the Dras River, coming from Dras. 5 km from Kargil the merged river meets the Suru River and again re-enters Pakistani territory.

The Shingo river is clearer than other rivers in Ladakh because it is formed from melting ice.
