Pangong Tso is the world’s highest brackish lake situated at 14,256ft and is 134km, it extends from India to China. An inner line permit is required to visit the lake as it lies in Sino-Indian Line of Control. It falls in the disputed territory. The eastern end of lake is in Tibet.
On the way, before touching the Pangong we can see the Yaks, the Pashmina Goats and Kiang(wild asses) grazing in herds around the grassland. We also spotted the Marmot, the large squirrel species. As we approached the lake, a sheet of vivid blue in the midst of mountains attracted our eyes. The water sparkles in distinct shades of blue, green, violet and purple, being transparent to a good depth. The lake does not support vegetation or aquatic life however many a large variety of migratory birds like sea gulls, brahmani ducks can be spoted.
