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.­
