Junction of Shyok and Nubra Valleys

Drainage patterns here are confusing.
The Shyok has risen behind the range on the right and drained SE (L to R).
It has then turned about to flow NW (R to L) through the valley to the left to join the Indus some way off.
The Nubra has risen in the valley to the right and come towards us to this point where it makes a sharp turn to join the Shyok and exit on the left.
