The renowned and sparkling blue Pangong Lake is placed in the Himalayas, approximately at the height of 4350 meters. It is 124 km long and extends from India to Tibet, where 60% of the lake lies. The lake freezes completely during winters in spite of its salinity. The lake is a great tourist attraction and has gained further popularity after being a ‘hot-spot’ for many film shoots. Pangong Lake is also known by the name of Hollow Lake and appears as a clear symbol of nature craftsmanship. The first glimpse of the azure blue waters, tranquil and shaky lakeshore remains etched in the memory of visitors. The visit to Pangong Lake requires inner line Permit.
Pangong Lake is home to many migratory birds in summer and one can witness numerous ducks and gulls “surfing”. Some are lucky to spot a kiang which is a wild ass and a marmot a brownish rodent. There are two streams from the Indian side that form the wetlands and marshes at the edges. It is the beauty of the impeccable blue waters that embezzle the tourist’s attention the most. The serenity and tranquility of this place is the tourist’s paradise.
