Remember the scene from the movie 3 Idiots when Kareena Kapoor comes riding on a scooter to meet Aamir Khan? Those of you who have seen the movie have already seen the scenic beauty of the picturesque Pangong Tso or Pangong Lake. Situated in the upper reaches of the Himalayan Mountain range about 140 km from Leh in Jammu and Kashmir, the lake is famous for its ever changing hues. There are many facts related to this lake. Please do the favour to share some of them.

Yes, I have heard that in spite of the altitude where the lake is located, the water of the lake is brackish and it also remains frozen for months during winter.

This is one of the greatest creations of Mother Nature that I have witnessed with my own eyes. This is a long natural lake with the length of 134 kms and 5 kms. wide. This lake is shared by India and China. 60% of the lake is in China. This place has amazing natural views and the water of the lake changes its colour with the rise of the sun. This is a very cold place and is a restricted area. A permission to visit Pangong Lake is required to be taken from the District Magistrate`s office in the Leh City.

Pangong Tso literally meaning `enchanted lake` is definitely the most beautiful lake located in Ladakh. A Trip to Ladakh is incomplete without a visit to this beautiful Lake. Pangong Tso is located roughly around 175 kms from Leh. Road is mostly good and even though a round trip to Pangong can be done in a day if you started real early from Leh, it is highly recommended that you make it at least a 2 day trip and spend the night by the lake. If you plan to return to Leh the same day, most of your time will be spent in travel and the entire trip will be a rush through.

The `3 Idiots` lake. There is a lot of crowd these days and some of them are stupid enough to wash their utensils in the lake. Overall the lake is beautiful with very cold water. The road is not exactly good but worth the time. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in India. The scenic beauty is just incredible. One should visit this place atleast once in his life.
