2 Day Trip to Pangong
At 4280m and only 154km away from Leh, the 40mile long Pangong Lake extends for the most part into China with only 1/4th of the lake lying in India (Ladakh).
It is a popular trip whilst in Leh because of the sheer magical beauty of this expansive lake. Surrounded by 6500m peaks, the light creates dramatic effects on the lake and it is worth just sitting and staring at how it changes. In the evening, the lake is at its darkest blue and in the morning light, purple, pink, green and blue ripples gently change the colour to a lighter shade.
Because of the strategic position of this lake and its proximity to the borders with China, one is not allowed to camp by the lake but there are nice camp sites and fixed tented accommodation about 13 km short of the lake.
