This is a point in the Baralacha La Route just like many other milestones rather altutudes marked over here. This is a place which fills in you a magical sense of self- confidence and energy. It feels like if coming up this high can be enjoyable, then our life needs even more adventure like this. You will find trekkers and jeeps here on adventure trips. This place is also like a camping site for the ones who halt here before moving forward towards the evn more difficult points of Himachal Pradesh and then Ladakh. You can erect a tent and then sip on steaming coffee while you admire the beauty of the snow- capped surroundings and especially the white snow- covered mountain peaks.
At an altitude of over 4800 metres above sea level, this lake is the 3rd highest lake in India and the 21st highest in the whole world. This is a place of outstanding beauty and people come here to admire the sceneries from all parts of the world. The lake is fed by the Bhaga River and is also the place where the confluence of the routes of Zanskar, Spiti and Ladakh takes place. The name of the lake literally means the Lake of the Sun God. It is thus said that taking a holy dip here can free a person of a lifetime of sins but this seems to be quite difficult. This place is almost completely uninhabited mainly due to the extreme climatic conditions and the lack of any basic facilities of living over here.

Again when winter arrives and there is snow all around, the highway remains no more motorable. At this time a part of the highway connects Zanskar in Ladakh to Lahaul and Spiti Valley in the Himachal Pradesh.
