  • Pangong Lake is a traveler’s delight and I feel that each tourist/ traveler must experience camping by the lakeside to enjoy the cool breeze, star-studded sky and the breathtaking views of the Lake, by the night.
  • Along with camping, do enjoy the barbecues and campfires by the Lake side.
  • Please dress up snugly as the temperatures at night and by the morning could be really low, say around zero degrees.The sunset here is worth seeing with the most picturesque sky.
  • Roughly 10 Kms before the Pangong Lake, you shall come across a sign that says, “‘Stop here to see rare endemic species Mormot’’.
  • Do take lots of pictures of the exciting moments of having the opportunity to be by the side of the highest Saltwater lake in the World.
