The beautiful PANGONG LAKE is about 130 Kms long. A large part of it extends into CHINA and is part of the Johnson line which separates China and India. This lake is also considered to be the world`s highest Salt Lake

The trecherous road leading to PANGONG TSO (Tso means lake)

This picture was taken at CHANGLA PASS (which is 17586 ft above Sea Level, & is the world`s 3rd highest motorable road) and the next picture was taken 3 hours later. ENJOY!!!
