Next day morning, first of October, I got up early and moved out to capture sunrise shots. There were few houses, probably related to military or locals to cater to the tourists. There was a dog in one of those houses which went on barking non-stop. That stopped me venturing forwards towards the lake.
Pangong Tso is high grass land lake at a height of 4350M and 134 KM long. It borders India and China, 60% being in China. It freezes in winter and has low micro vegetation.
There aren’t any fish or aquatic life only gulls and ducks are seen. The wild life that is seen around in this area is Kiang- wild asses, and marmot.
After having breakfast, we moved along the banks of Pangong Tso and captured some beautiful landscape pictures. The reflections of mountains in the water were awesome. We were lucky to spot few black necked cranes on the way to Tsomoriri.
On the way where nature presented in its utmost beautiful colors we did take some photographs.
It was a long journey; we had touched just one village at about 2PM. Everybody was hungry. The hotel was a roadside shop which generally sells tea and snacks. On request they could provide us instant cooked noodles, right in front of us keeping us waiting. Even the bowls were few. After one batch had they were washed and another batch was served. Some of us wanted to have tea also. For that we had to wait for another half-an-hour. People who disliked grumbled that we are getting unnecessarily delayed. Anyway by 3.30PM we resumed our trip towards Tsomoriri.
As it was getting dark we were bit worried for we may get stranded amidst mountains in the cold weather. Finally by the time we reached Tsomoriri it was past 10PM. I don’t remember what we had for supper. There was no power supply. It was pitch dark. We all just marched into our allotted rooms in mobile light and fell asleep on our bed.
