Laia playing with baby goats - Pangong Lake - Ladakh (India)
Pashmina (also known as Changthangi) is a special breed of long-haired goat, indigenous to the high altitudes (above 3,000 m) of the Himalayas. The sought after Pashmina wool -- legendary for its softness and warmth -- is made with the fur of these goats.
Photos of the trip to Pangong Lake via Chang-La Pass (Ladakh, India).
The water of Pangong lake is salty, which gives it a very blue color.
The Pangong Lake (Pangong Tso) is located in Eastern Ladakh, near Tibet, in the Himalayas.
Parts of the Pangong Lake area are in a disputed territory between India and China. These photos were taken in the area controlled by India.
