Pangong Lake (also Pangong Tso or Banggong Co Lake) is a lake in the Himalayas situated at 4,350 metres above sea level. Its length is 134 kilometres covering both China and India. The lake is a breeding ground for a number of migratory birds including Brahmini Ducks and the Bar-headed goose.
The lakeside is open from May to September, during the tourist season. Boating is not permitted on the lake for security reasons.
Since the lake is in disputed territory, an Inner Line Permit is required to visit. Indian nationals can get individual permits, but others will need to be accompanied by an accredited guide and have a group permit (minimum 3 people). These can be organised at the tourist office in Leh.
Pangong Lake is a rough, dramatic five hour drive from Leh, traversing the Changla pass.
