Next morning, 8th July, we were going from Pangong Tso to Tso Moriri. This journey and the Tso Moriri were something I’d absolutely wanted to experience for many years now, and undoubtedly, I was excited. A point to be remembered is that the route from Pangong Tso to Tso Moriri isn’t a road, it’s just a space between mountains, no milestones, no car repair shops, no roadside dhabas, no settlements, nothing, hence it’s generally the road less taken. At around 8:30 in the morning, we set off from Pangong Tso. The road from Pangong in the direction of Tso Moriri is out-of-the-world wonderful! It isn’t even a road, just boulders, sand and stones from the lake bed. The car drove absolutely along Pangong lake, just beside it, sometimes even dipping into the water of the lake. Soon, any existence of life was out of sight, just simple plain lake bed, the blue waters and barren mountains surrounding us. We got down at a spot where the Pangong Tso bends into China and isn’t visible anymore; 2 countries, just 2 mountains apart. Then started the most adventurous, yet beautiful road of the trip. The road passes through a region that looks absolutely uninhabited, but there were bunkers everywhere. Apparently, that route is absolutely parallel to the India-China border, so even though it might look uninhabited, it’s an extremely active area for the military, with bunkers and military cabins of both the countries, everywhere on the mountains.
