About Pangong Lake, Leh

The Pangong Lake is an exquisite and worldwide famous closed drainage lake spread across a vast area in the Himalayas. The major portion of the lake falls in the territory of Tibet. The lake has been categorized under the protocol of the Ramsar Convention as a great wetland reserve with a recognized global importance. Consequently, the lake has attained the status of the inaugural international wetland in South Asia.

The lake characteristically freezes at the onset of winter. Being situated at an altitude of almost 4500 meters, the lake consists of extremely minimal aquatic vegetation and micro vegetation.

Pangong Lake, Leh Reviews

  • Beautiful place to be, mesmerizing lake view with an amazing atmosphere. Serenity and peace to you. Once you visit it will be on your list again, one of the top places in India to see and feel the nature at its best. I loved to be there, it will be in your memory forever.

  • Very tranquil and beautiful place. Colour of the water keeps changing from deep blue to turquoise. Staying here is a wonderful experience. Most of the tented accommodation available is below par and not clean. Pangong Sarai is the better one and Pangong Hermitage is the best (and it's premium category). J&K govt was building a new cluster of wooden cottages and when completed (by early 2018) these will be the best.

  • High altitude lake at 13000+ feet above sea level.Awesome is the word which comes first when you see this!. If the sky is clear, one can see milky way during night.If you are not acclimatized to high altitude, you may get altitude sickness.Hence take necessary precautions before you visit this place.Visited here in July2017.

  • It's the best lake I ever visited... Such an endless blue water, clear sky... Oh man its just feels like the place next to the heaven. The beauty of this lake is just amazing, words are not enough to describe... Must visit place once in a lifetime.

  • It is one of the most famous place situated in Ladakh region. Though the place is beautiful but The three idiots movie has made this place more famous. There are good scenic views through out the journey. If a person want to enjoy this place in full then a night stay is must at this place.
