Pangong lake is a lake in the Himalayas situated at a height about of about 4,350m.  Approximately 60% of the length of the lake lies in China. The lake is 5 km wide at its broadest point. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water.

Pinging Tso can be reached in a five-hour drive from Leh, most of it on a rough and dramatic mountain road. The road crosses the villages, where army sentries and a small teahouse greet visitors. An Inner Line Permit is required to visit the lake as it lies on the Sino-Indian Line of Actual Control.

While Indian nationals can obtain individual permits, others must have group permits (with a minimum of three persons) accompanied by an accredited guide; the tourist office in Leh issues the permits for a small fee.For security reasons, India does not permit boating.
