It’s time for a bit serious scenery and altitude; a pleasant contrast to the confined space of the gompas. Time for some fresh air; so get out those walking shoes and prepare your eyes for a visual feast. Oh, and don’t forget the camera, as next is on to Chang-La and beyond – the great Pangong Lake Tour.

The average altitude of the lake is around 4000 meters, so please come prepared for a bit cold. The route to Pangong also involves crossing Chang-La pass, elevation 5300 metres. When the weather is poor, even during summer, the higher reaches of the Changthang often experience snow shower. 

The greater 70% of the lake is in the Tibet autonomous region, and 30% is in India. The lake extends up to 134 km in length and 5 km in width, and in winter it freezes up completely even though it is saline water. 

Pangong Lake Tour is famous for a few reasons. First, it draws several migratory birds during summer, and second the famous 3-idiot movie being shot here. This beautiful lake circled by picturesque villages is a popular destination for avid Bikers. 

The lake is devoid of any fish, due to its saline water.
