Pangong Tso or Pangongtso Ladakh India

This is a panorama of the Pangongtso lake in Ladakh. No, not the full lake but the part that everyone focuses on with its foreshore water and the mountain range in the background. This was made of 5 jpeg images stitched in a photo editor.


The skies in the high altitude arid dry mountainside are clear and rich in blue color. Most times the blues look unreal but that is how they are up there.


Pangongtso is at an altitude of about 14250 feet and the lake is saline and brackish in parts and it freezes over in the winter inspite of the high salt content. The brief summer months have an explosion of visitors but at other times of the year, it is empty and divine.


This was shot in November and it was cold indeed.


The pano is about 30" wide and the lake about 83 miles long
