Pangong Tso lake found fame thanks to Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots so without a doubt, this place deserves to be on your itinerary of places to visit in Ladakh. Pangong Tso-lake in Changthang region of Ladakh has emerged as one of the most wanted places to visit among domestic tourists in recent times. The color of water is always changing with the weather condition. The water sparkles in distinct shades
of blue, green, purple, and violet, being transparent to a good depth. In winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water. The lake acts as an important breeding ground for a large variety of migratory birds like Brahmani Ducks, Rare black necked cranes and Seagulls. One can also spot Ladakhi Marmots, the rodent-like creatures which can grow up to the size of a small dog. Pangong is a
remote area. Beauty of Pangong Tso cannot be described but can only be experienced. The lake mesmerizes one and all with its shimmering beauty. The best part about this journey is the route that leads to the lake. You have to pass through Ladakh which is another great tourist attraction of the
country and drive over the world’s third highest motorable mountain pass called the Chang La. The first glance of this alluring lake and its blue waters is enough to leave a lasting impression on your mind. What tourists and explorers love the most here is the narrow stretch of land that goes straight into the lake. This spot has also been a favorite among many photographers. If you are planning to visit Pangong Lake, make sure you do not visit during winters because the whole lake freezes during this season of the year. By looking at Pangong Lake, we can say that a lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. Pack a
sweet picnic basket and head with your folks to the lake and maybe even camp next to it as you enjoy every moment of peace and tranquillity.
