A mosaic of myriad shades of blue, the pristine Pangong Lake is perched at a height of 14,270 ft above sea level and is said to be one of the highest brackish water lake in the world. Lying almost on the Indo-Chinese border, a part of it falls in India, while the other is in China. The beauty of the lake is such that it has been a cinematic backdrop for the popular movie, 3 Idiots. In fact, there is a 3 Idiots Point in the area, where the famous yellow scooter from the movie's climax is stationed. The lake is about 5 km wide at its broadest point and about 134 km in length. There are also a variety of camps that surround the banks of the lake which offer budget to luxurious accommodation. It is situated about 220 km from Leh.
