At an altitude of 4350m, the magical Pangong lake is perhaps one of the most photographed and visited place in Ladakh and has featured in several advertisements. The frequency of visitors to this lake increased further after the movie – “ 3 Idiots” .  This massive lake is 134 km in length and 1/3 of the lake lies in India while the rest in China.   The colors of the lake along the shores take on different hues with the changing light and the deep azure blue of the lake with the stark mountains in the back will keep on mesmerized.

Trip Highlights
  • Mesmerizing Pangong Lake 
  • Picturesque and stunning landscape
  • Crossing Changla pass 


  • Day 1
    Enroute to Pangong lake, we will stop to visit the lesser known Taktok and Chemre monasteries tucked in the rocky hillsides. We follow a well maintained road winding our way through rocky cliffs and spectacular landscape to the Changla pass at 5599m from where we descend to the village of Tangtse. This route is also of historical significance as the ancient silk trade route passed through here along the Shyok river to Nubra and the Karakoram pass as well as to Demchok and onto Lake Manasarover in Tibet. An hour beyond Tangtse is the Lake where we camp – 5 hrs . Evening we visit the lake to witness the sunset. One can drive further to Man Mirak – the last village. O/N camp
