Ladakh's tourism took an unprecedented turn after the Bollywood blockbuster 3 Idiots featured the glistening Pangong Lake. The aftermath? Tourists started flocking to Ladakh and made Pangong an icon. Nine years have passed since the film released and tourism in Ladakh continues to grow exponentially.
I have observed that most of the people who visit Ladakh don't explore beyond the already-famous places and lakes like Pangong and Tso Moriri dictate their itineraries. I have thus compiled a list of lakes in Ladakh that aren't Pangong or Tso Moriri. Feel free to visit them if you like travelling differently!
