Pangong Lake Motorbike Tour
Pangong Tso (or Pangong lake; Tso: Ladakhi for lake) is a lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4250 m (13,900 ft). It is 134 km (83.3 mi) long and extends from India to Tibet. Two thirds of the length of this lake falls in Tibet. It is 5 km wide at its broadest point. In winter, the lake surface freezes completely despite being salt water. The road to Pangong lake traverses the third-highest pass in the world, the Changla pass, where army sentries and a small teahouse greet visitors.
The lake is in the process of being identified under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance. This will be the first trans-boundary wetland in South Asia under the convention.
