Its 160m from Leh,one
has to pass third highest pass in the world Changla (17800 ft)
Here you see one small temple and lots of prayer flag..
Summer also you can see snow peaked mountain here,so freezing chill..
160m it looks very small,but it took 6hr drive from Leh...One day trip will both tiredsome.
so better stay there night camp and come back next day.
The road to Pangong one never forget,its steep road and bends,
some place melting ice makes sleppery road...

Pangong is plargest salt-water lake in Asia ,its 150m 50 km inside India,100km lies China..
Its very beautiful &awesome lake....Its altitude of 14500 ft
Winter it will be frozen lake..

when I reach late afternoon,I was welcome by group Seagull bird sitting on the small island sand of Lake..
As if they are waiting for me welcome this awesome place..I did shoot them with my 70-200mm.
Its really diffrent view of the Lake on Seagull on foreground..
Its clear blue water ,when light change its change its colour blue-green, mauve, deep blue..
Its awesome to see this Lake,and sitting on the Lake bank ,its very facinating to watch the water changing colours .
The place was so so beautiful,serene and calm.
I spend night at camp....Got early morning,could see dark blue in morning and sunlight reflecting the mouintain ...
Its breathtakeing view.
To visit Pangong one should get permisson at Leh.
