The most popular tourist attraction in Ladakh, Pangong lake is an endorheic (landlocked) lake situated at the height of 4350 meters. Also known as Pangong Tso, it is 12 kilometres long and extends from India to Tibet. A unique feature of the lake is that it does not remain blue throughout the year or even the day, rather it changes colours from azure to light blue to green and grey too! It is famous amongst tourists as the spot where the Bollywood movie "3 Idiots" was shot.
Owing to its altitude, the Pangong Lake temperature ranges from -5°C to 10°C as a result of which it freezes completely during winters in spite of its salinity. The sublime beauty, crystal waters and gentle hills of Pangong Lake are an exceptional example of the beautiful landscape of the region. There are two streams from the Indian side that form the wetlands and marshes at the edges. Note than an inner line permit is required to visit Pangong Tso.
