Pangong Panorama

One of the most beautiful water-body I have seen, the bluest shade of blue water, and on one side snow capped mountains and on the other side we see bare hills... beautiful has a new definition here.


"Pangong Tso, Tibetan for "long, narrow, enchanted lake", also referred to as Pangong Lake, is an endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km (83 mi) long and extends from India to Tibet. Approximately 60% of the length of the lake lies in Tibet. The lake is 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its broadest point. All together it covers 604 km2. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water." -- Wikipedia !!
