Pangong Tso

Here's a view of the beautiful high altitude Lake.
Pangong Tso, Ladakh.
I wish to return to those azure waters soon! Soon again!

The little black dots sort of thing on the extreme left is actually two jeeps on a small patch of land. Just so you get an idea of the scale. :)

  1. This is an amazing shot!! truly mind blowing

  2. Ooh nice! I love the way clouds leave shadows on the hills... gives an idea of space! Ladakh is truly beautiful, the pictures of that place never cease to amaze me! If you can, purchase a polarizer for your camera. You can cut out reflection from the water from certain directions and have a reflection of the mountains only... looks spectacular!

  3. @ Ravish - Nice to see you here! :) Thanks..
    This was where it all started.. my foray into the world of travel and photography.

    @ Kokonad - Thanks.. :) and yea.. Ladakh is truly truly spectacular. Each time i see a picture of a place, it is different again. I have been unsuccesfully trying to save up so i can buy a DSLR..will add polarizer to the list too.. :D

    @ Sandeep - Thanks.. :)

    @ rocksea - Thanks.. took this while returning back from Pangong.. Was in the jeep actually and taken through the glass.. :) That's the reason for the reflection..

    Did you really think about the title of your blog? Pondering and Musing mean the same thing, and putting them together seems kinda redundant.

  8. The sky is so much crystal clear isn't it!! Thats the beauty of that place :). Brilliant framing.

    I actually missed pangong tso, during my trip, and now I realise its the biggest miss. Wish to go back soon :)

  9. Beautiful and serene Landscape shot, Cool.

  10. @ Anonymous - Thanks... and lol yeah.. this blog started out as a personal blog and i named it Pondering musings or thoughtless thoughts.. but somewhere along the way i decided to make it a travel blog instead.. :D
