World’s Highest Salt water lake – Pangong Tso!!

At 4350 meters Pangong Tso is a wonder of nature, I was living a dream of many who intend to visit this lake once in a life time.

Situated at a distance of 140kms from Leh Pangong Tso is one of most popular destinations to visit, length of the lake is 162kms and 70% of the lake is in China while the rest is in India. Since it forms the border line between Indian and China, riding to Pangong Tso need some special permission form the government of India.

Crossing the world’s third’s highest motorable road enroute Pangong Tso

Route to Pangong Tso is a visual treat, we cross the mighty Himalayan pass of Chang La at 17586ft and then a sandy stretch of road to make the ride more adventurous. The temperature drops and it tends to get too cold to ride.

The beauty of Pangong Tso

I had a fall while I was riding due to boulders on the under construction highway, I broke my arm and yet I was alone. I had to ride on to reach Pangong Tso. I was in pain and then pain vanished once I saw the beautiful Pangong Tso in all its glory.

It can be done as a one day trip from Leh with early departure and late arrival or I suggest you to go and spend quality 2 dates of time here at the lake. Kindly book the accommodations in advance to make it a hassle free experience and even better is I suggest you to camp here, it can get very windy out there.
