ATTRACTION OF LADAKH: PANGONG TSO LAKE
One of the highest lakes in the world, Pangong Tso Lake is one of the most popular names in Leh Ladakh tourism. Sitting graciously on the upper reaches of the great Himalayas, this mesmerising lake is located around 140km from Leh and it spreads its alluring charm across the Indo-China Border; with majority of it being controlled by China.
For those, who are still unaware of Pangong Tso’s enchanting beauty, they can recall the Bollywood blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’, whose climax was shot around this lake. Situated at a towering height of 4,350m, Pangong Tso Lake in Ladakh is also famed as one of the highest saline water lakes in the world.
Visiting this lake is truly an experience of its own kind! While a visit during the summer is greeted with the crystal-clear reflection of the nearby mountain ranges on the turquoise water of this lake, visitors can witness the entire lake freezing down during the winters. Be it an adventure freak, romantic couple, leisure seeker, backpacker, or a shutterbug, the lake entices all types of tourist enjoying the Leh Ladakh tour packages.
However, due to the strategic location of Pangong Tso Lake, foreign nationals need to obtain an Inner Line Permit (ILP) to visit this captivating lake in Ladakh. Also, visitors are allowed only till the limits of the Spangmil Village near the lake. Though boating or any other water activities are restricted, visitors can enjoy camping beside the Pangong Tso Lake and enjoy its magical beauty.
