The only sound you hear is the sound of silence. And your heartbeat. Pangong Lake, the world’s highest saltwater lake is a beautiful picturesque place. Sitting beside the quaint lake is an experience in itself and the hills around are a feast for your eyes.
With the azure blue sky above and floating white clouds, the whole frame becomes so majestic, especially when the reflection of the hills falls on the lake water. It is so real that it almost gives a feeling that the hills are below too.
If you are one of those dare-devils, try taking a dip in the icy cold water of Pangong. Or else, just strolling and walking beside the lake shore with your family or friends would be the most beautiful and memorable moment of your life.
If you are lucky enough to stay overnight, you’ll see that the nights are even more majestic and amazing. The breeze gets a little chilly but if you are wearing the right clothes and have covered yourself well, then it would be a great experience to have.
A bon-fire, yummy hot Ladakhi food, the silent breeze, the tranquil environment, you, your loved ones… and a million stars over your head, twinkling, shinning throughout the night — what a place to be in! A telescope would heighten this mesmerising state. You can find many constellations and some planets too.
Imagine all this happening around and you having a starry-night dinner with your beloved or loved ones. A table set by the lake with the stars shinning overhead and a lantern glowing on your tabletop. Singing songs, dancing by the bonfire and hot Ladakhi food being served… This seems straight out of a beautiful poetry.
Here, you’ll find tents that can be booked to have a convenient, memorable stay at Pangong. The team here also ensures to keep Pangong clean by many ongoing cleanliness drives. So you, too, like a good samaritan, make sure to carry the litter back and dispose it off at the proper place.
Have a beautiful day and a mesmerising night at Pangong Tso!
