Depsang Plains: Plains at the north of Aksai Chin divided between China and India
The Depsang Plains represent a high-altitude gravelly plain at the northwest portion of the disputed Aksai Chin region of Kashmir, divided into Indian and Chinese administered portions across a Line of Actual Control. India controls the western portion of the plains as part of Ladakh, whereas the eastern portion is controlled by China and claimed by India. The Depsang plains are also part of the area called Sub-Sector North (SSN) by the Indian military.
