The drive to Pangong is beautiful, long and at some times trying (mainly the patch of 15 kms before and after Chang-la). The rest of the roads are in exceptional condition! Hats off to the Border Roads Organisation for the excellent efforts! The drive is long but in no way boring - beautifully hued mountains, yaks, frozen streams, marmots, kiang, ducks, the prized pashmina goats, horses and various other colourful himalyan birds give you company on the way! And the lake is nothing short of heaven - never seen so many shades of blue at one time! Its almost as if god's taken to the paintbrush with a blue pallette! Do stay overnight or two (if u can!). U will be able to see how the lake changes colours during the day depending on the position of the sun. There is a campsite - Camp Watermark which is there at the banks of the lake in the most idyllic settings and is actually quite good and well managed! The feeling of experiencing the sunset and sunrise at the lake is simply impossible to describe in words...Even though May is supposed to be early in the season and quite cold - we were very comfortable at night even with our 8 year old son. A pair of thermals with a heavy jacket is more than sufficient to keep you warm on the outdoors even after the sun sets. Don't make the mistake of attempting to stay overnight at Pangong without having spent atleast 5 nights in Leh. We had a good number of people suffering from altitude sickness at the campsite - a real pity when u can't enjoy the pristine surroundings. Trying to do the lake in a day trip just would not do justice to Pangong. Quite simply put we stayed there for a night but just didn't want to leave!!! Pangong is stunning, a treat to the senses and simply a must-do on your visit to Ladakh!

We visited Ladakh in October (10th to 17th) 2019 and went to Pangong from Nubra Valley on 13th October. In October temporary stay options at Pangong gets closed, so we stayed at Tangtse ( Pangong Residency). We visited the lake in the afternoon with bright sunshine making the beauty of the lake awesome. Different colour of the water makes it heaven like feeling. We stayed for an hour or so and due to cold wind returned to Tangtse. The road from Tangtse to Pangong is also nice with wild horse seen frequently.

Pangong is the most beautiful lake I have ever set my eyes upon . The waters are so blue that you can't take your eyes off them .The drive is through some rough roads . Tents were available for night stay by booking in advance.

Pangong Lake is also knows as #PangongTSO. This is no doubt a high #altitude lake (approx. 4350 meter). This lake is 5 KM wide and 134 KMs long in India. 60% of lake comes under  China country. As I have already said before, Pangong Lake is must visit for the one who loves travelling. This lake is also known as salt water lake. However, the visibility is like #crystal clear as there is no pollution. Everything, you will see there will reflect as blue. Lake is surrounded by heavy glaciers or the snowcapped hills and the temperature remains around 5-10°C in summers. In winters, this lake freezes completely despite being the salt water. To visit this lake, you will have to take permit from Leh City. There are three kind of permits depending upon the routes and you must be selective while choosing them. You can rent a taxi or Bike from Ladakh city if you aren't traveling by your own vehicle. However, if your are taking your own vehicle then please make sure the RC and vehicle documents owner is with you. There are three routes to visit this lake. 1. Via Karu - ChangLa pass - This is an amazing way and you will experience the difference in altitude within hours. #ChanglaPass remains #snowcapped alomost the entire time. 2. From Nubra Valley via #Shyok Village route - This route is most adventurous and amazing one. Any traveler is going to love this way. In between you will find a plain road for approx 40KMs. This route is less traveled than the first one. 3. Third one is Wari La pass route. This is really an amazing and must visit destination. You can contact us if you want to travel to this place in reasonable price.

I am not sure whether this place needs any review or recommendation. It is a breathtaking view once you see this and one needs to be really fortunate to go and see it. While the travel to get to the lake could be challenging as you go through all the ups and downs and touch some of the highest motorable roads you forget everything once you get a glimpse of Pangong. To be honest I have not seen anything as beautiful as this in my life.
