Pangong lake day. Yes for me it was the Lake day 13th June 2018. I know I sound bit extra but I can’t help it. After an astounding 6 hours journey through Sangla Valley we reached Pangong Tso.
The lake was so beautiful that I got mesmerised by the contrasting brown mountain and blue water. The place was so beautiful that taking out your camera and clicking yourself on the frame won’t suffice to the term “justice”. Of course I clicked some of my pictures in the frame only to bring back some of me who had lost in there. I had seen the pictures of Pangong much before I started planning to visit this but believe me the pictures are just 1% of what you see in real. The lake has an aura of itself which radiates and extract the most serene and pure feelings in you. “Sit back and Relax” is the ideal thing to be followed there. If I could stay there for some more days only to adore this beauty but sadly good things are limited.
Evening was more fun with the gang and bone fires under clearly visible innumerable stars. I am a star person and I can’t resist my eyes to stare at the twinkling of the stars if they are clearly visible. I felt privileged to be there at that time in the light of those uncounted stars. I lighted a cigarette and went bit further, away from group, sat there for sometime gazing the sky. The cold waves rushing in and a deep drag of cigarette was quite an equaliser. I cannot forget this moment when I looked above and rolled a few tear drops down...it’s like that type of moment when you feel so enrichingly fulfilled that you can’t help but cry like a child. I did the same.
Next morning I woke up late and regretted for not being able to see the sunrise at the lake as we did party till late night. On our way back we again stopped at the point to spend some more time by the side.
I secretly wished I could swim across the lake to the mountains only to have a other side view of this place called heaven. But then good things come with terms and conditions attached.
