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.­
