Tour Location

Pangong Tso Lake

Pangong Lake is Ladakh’s most important tourist attraction. This azure stretch of endorheic lake is situated at a dizzying height of 4350 meter and looks as if it is piece of heaven that fell on earth. Surrounded by barren mountains, this lake is probably one of the most beautiful lakes in Ladakh. Pangong is a transboundary lake that is expanded between India and China for almost 134 kms. About one-third of the lake is in India and has an average width is around 5 kms making it one of the largest brackish water lake in the world. The vistas of the lake are so stunning that several Bollywood movies have been shot here. One thing that attracts tourists here is the way the brackish water reacts when the sunlight falls resulting in different shades of water. This gorgeous lake is the breeding ground for many migratory birds like Bar-headed goose and Brahmini Duck.
Pangong Lake is accessible from Leh City, which is at a distance of 150 kms. Cabs are available for reaching the lake from Leh.

Best Time to Visit

Summer months of June to September are ideal to visit the lake. During the winter, the lake freezes and the roads also get blocked.
