It takes a pleasant 5 hour journey crossing the Chang la the third highest road to Pangong Tso from Leh. At a height of over 14500 feet, tourists usually cover this in a day, but then it becomes only a photo op. Pangong means a long narrow enchanted lake, and it is truly enchanting.
To enjoy Pangong, one must allow it to soak completely on . Its unbelievably beautiful, so much so, today, I wonder was it really so.
Stay a day at the tents on the bank, walk along the lake, watch the interplay of the sun on the color of the lake and the naked mountains, wake up at dawn at 4.30 AM then continue the same routine.
