THOISE is not a real name but an acronym: Transit Halt Of Indian Soldiers Enroute (to Siachen). Thoise is about an hour's flight from Delhi. The place is approximately 16 km away from the village of Hundur and 25 km from Disket. It is about 160 km from Leh, the capital of Ladakh. Thoise is reached via the Khardungla pass, one of the world's highest roads used by motor vehicles.
Thoise is out of bounds for civilians. The last checkpost is at Hundur, at a bridge where photography is not permitted. Indian Oil Corporation Limited is making an oil depot to serve the Indian army. The construction project is in progress and is monitored from Chandigarh.
