Pangong Lake – Ladakh

Pangong Lake – Ladakh

Pangong Lake is situated in the Himalayan range, it is approximately 140 km from Leh & Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. The name of the lake Pangong was got from a Tibetan word Banggong Co which means a narrow and enchanted lake. The beauty and allure of Pangong lake have attracted people from all over the country and beyond. The lake is said to be in the process of being identified as a wetland with international significance under the Ramsar Convention and if everything goes as expected then the Pangong Lake will be the first in South Asia to be a trans-boundary wetland and that too under this convention. The one factor that makes this Lake so popular is the fact that it keeps changing colors. 

All you need to do is take a five-hour drive from Leh to reach Pangong Lake. The best part about this journey is the route that leads to the lake. You have to pass through Ladakh which is another great tourist attraction of the country and drive over the world’s third-highest motorable mountain pass called the Chang La.

The first glance of this alluring lake and its blue waters is enough to leave a lasting impression on your mind. What tourists and explorers love the most here is the narrow stretch of land that goes straight into the lake. This spot has also been a favorite among many photographers. If you are planning to visit Pangong Lake, make sure you do not visit during winters because the whole lake freezes during this season of the year.
