In Tibetan, Pangong Tso means a long, narrow, magical lake, and this turquoise Himalayan lake is exactly that, and much more. Pangong Lake is situated at a height of more than 4000 mts. and is about 160 KMs from Leh. Pangong Lake can be reached via Changla pass, about 5 hour journey from Leh. There is nothing in sight but different shades of blue and snow-capped mountains. You'd mistake this lake to be a sea, owing to the ripples in the lake that look like sea waves. It is not an easy journey, high altitude, serpentine roads and not the most comfortable accommodation options. But once you're here, the views are bound to take your breath away.
