13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Himalayan Desert

Pangong Lake is a very popular tourist destination in Ladakh due to the shooting of a popular Bollywood Feature film there. However, most people only see 20 percent of the lake as they approach it from Leh. We drove along the entire length of the lake as we approached it from the China border side. This image is taken just where the lake begins.
