Leh to Pangong LakeLeh to Pangong Lake is a journey that everyone who arrives in this heaven takes to see the most beautiful lake in the country. The blue heaven like lake that stretches for about 134 km between India and China, it is one of the most mesmerizing sights that people from all over the world come to witness while on their trip to Leh-Ladakh.
Wide by about 5 to 6 km on its broadest point, Pangong is a lake of saline water, with very less vegetation around and limited species of Crustaceans living inside the lake. The most important highlight of the lake, however, is the perfectly still water in the midst of towering snow-capped mountains.
The blue water of the lake reflects the sky and the mountains, making this the most picture-perfect in Ladakh. As far as getting to the Pangong Lake from Leh is considered, the main location of Spangmik near the lake is located at about 160 km one way.
Connected via road, the ride takes one over the Chang La Pass (5,360 m) and the Pagal Naala (The Crazy Stream), before one lands up in Pangong (4,250 m). One of the most picturesque, and one of the most pictured location in the country, Pangong is also one of the most dreamy locations in the country.
