Pangong Lake, the world’s highest saltwater lake, has reopened for tourists almost a year after it was shut due to COVID-19 restrictions, and military conflict that escalated between India and China later in the year.
Located at approx. 14,000 ft., the lake is recognised for its serene landscape, and crystal clear waters. The spot also continues to be one of the flashpoints between Indian and Chinese territory, with one-third of the lake located in India and the remaining part in China.
