See how nature crafted one of the most recognizable water-filled basins at the world's rooftop at Pangong Tso. This salty lake attracts swarms of tourists, however, people of foreign nationality require group permits accompanied by an accredited guide to visit. Explore the countryside near Chang La--the third-highest motorable mountain pass--and view or photograph the green, brown, and purple Himalayan backdrop. Witness how the lake, despite its saline traits, becomes frozen during winter (solid enough that you can walk across it). Visit the gala festival of ice skating and immerse yourself in the local culture of the native people. Nearby towns provide basic accommodation, but you can also bring a tent. Use our Leh trip itinerary planner to add Pangong Tso and other attractions to your Leh vacation plans.
