Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh

Pangong Tso translated as "high grassland lake" in Tibetan is a spectacular lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m and 134 km long. The colour of Pangong Tso Lake changes to the different shades of blue, green and an unusual red. Pangong Tso is an endorheic lake because the water flow is terminated before reaching the ocean hence the minerals and salts are retained in this lake. Since there is no way for salt outflow, the water in the lake is salty. But during winter from November to March, the lake freezes completely even though it is a saline lake. So the best time to visit this dazzling lake is during summer between June and October.

Due to the presence of less fresh water in the lake, vegetation in this lake is very low. There are no fish or other aquatic life in the lake. Only some crust oceans such as shrimps live in this lake. This lake has many migrating birds coming here for breeding. The Bar-headed goose and Brahmini ducks are mostly seen here during summer which is visual treat for tourists. Some of the wildlife species living in this lake are kiang and the Marmot. Pangong Lake is a disputed territory. Only one third of the lake is in India. The remaining two third of the lake is in Tibet which is controlled by China. The Line of Actual Control passes through the lake. Chine controls the 20 km from the Line of Actual Control which is claimed by India. The western end also remains as a dispute area between India and Pakistan.

This lake is a five hours drive from Leh in Ladakh of Jammu and Kashmir. The road to Pangong Tso Lake Ladakh lies at an altitude of 17,352 feet above sea level. This road trip is enjoyed by all hard core adventure lovers. After a tough drive of 5 hours, the stunning beauty of this lake will make all forget about the hardship experienced. The climax scene of 3 idiots, Mani Ratnam's Dil Se song ‘Satrangi Re’ and many other popular film scenes and songs are shot in this incredible location for its scenic beauty. Accommodation near Pangong Lake is very less and costly. Hence camping is mostly preferred by the visiting adventure seekers. The lake’s colour changing property, adventurous location and peaceful atmosphere are the highlights of this water miracle which attracts many people around the world. This serene lake with unbelievable magic is a must-see destination for any travel lover.

    Deepak's 7 days trip to Ladakh

    Overall it was well managed and smooth. The information, booking vouchers was sent on time.The booking and flexibility provided during and on the trip was good. We were well informed about the necessary information/ permits in advance. A. Sangaylay- The hotel was good and considerate. They helped u
    s with getting a temp room till we could actually check in to rest. The rooms were clean and staff was courteous and prompt and went all the way to make our stay comfortable. The food served was good and fresh with variety. B. Organic boutique- Considering it was a remote location the tent stay was fine. The food was strictly okay but experience was fine overall. C. Pangong vista - The room provided was good. The food was with variety even though it was remote location. The view from the hotel is beautiful and has direct access to lake. D. Tsomoriri lake view- Though given the benefit of doubt the area is secluded, the room was not that well maintained (it was dusty). The food was delicious and hotel staff made all the attempts to serve us hot and fresh food. E. Grand Yasmin - the rooms were strictly okay. The hotel was stuffy and food was below average. The only good point was it was 2-3 min walking distance from the market. Driver- Lobzang was courteous and understanding. He was always smiling and was a safe driver. He was always keen in showing us places and suggesting us the good places to eat. Always prompt and available. He deserved and got Pat on the back. Shefali was considerate and helped us in getting the choice of hotels. She was flexible in getting us done with minor tweaks we needed in the itinerary last min.Apart from one confusion with Leh sight seeing it was all good. Special thanks to you for being approachable and for checking on us throughout the trip. Will not only book it from you again but will also recommended Tripita in our network.
