Pangong tso is Tibetan for ‘long, narrow, enchanted lake’. There could not have been a better name. 604 sq kms in size and azure blue in colour, Pangong was made famous by Aamir Khan in his film, ‘3 Idiots’.
Pangong’s crystal clear waters, the deep blue and green colours of the lake and the stark mountains surrounding the waters all make for ‘picture-perfect’ postcards! Evenings and early mornings are the most beautiful times here, when the sun’s orange playfully mixes with the blue of the lake, creating a surreal image one has to see to believe! We camp on the shores of the lake at night, and in case you manage to get out of your cozy tent at night, be sure to check out the still waters bathing in silvery moonlight!
