The Suraj Tal, is one of the most dream-like and photogenic lakes.
The sheer beauty of this place is enough to make the drive seem worth the effort. The lake is fed from the glaciers of Baralacha La and the area around makes for a great trek and biking tour.
in between i crossed the beautiful snow covered BARLACHALA PASS and the mighty TANGLANG LA pass,the second highest pass of the route. i reached leh in late evening and spend the next whole day exploring local areas and markets of leh, meeting with the locals knowing a lil bit of their rich culture and roaming through the beautiful monasteries.
next day i headed towards nubra valley passing through the mighty KHARDUNGLA PASS, highest pass of the route. reaching at khardungla and shouting vande Mataram along with our brave army persons a goosebump and never forgettable moment.
i didn't stay longer here and reached nubra valley passing through the colourful mountains, beautiful rivers and the sandy terrain. this beautiful landscape of nubra valley was just beyond my imagination. i never imagined a sand desert sorrounded by sandy mountains covered with snow and a beautiful river passing through the desert its just like an dreamy landscape.
after spending the night in nubra valley we left for pangong lake or i must say a synonym of heaven.
blue calm water Changing its colour through the period of whole day, cold breeze in sunshine is beyond description. i spent that night in a tent near pangong lake,although i got sick in night due to extreme weather conditions but the overall experience here is a must have.
