Thoise airbase, ICAO: VI57. THOISE is no real name but an acronym for: Transit Halt Of Indian Soldiers Enroute (to Siachen).
The airstrip is a critical facility enabling a quick airlift of men and material from the Indian mainland to Siachen, a glacier, helipad and battleground near the Actual Ground Position Line between India and Pakistan.
Thoise also has a small temporary garrison.
