Day 8 Turtuk to Lake Pangong

We had a full day’s drive from Turtuk, bordering on Pakistan to Lake Pangong, bordering on China. We passed through a dry river bed!

The lake has become very popular in the last decade as it featured in a Bollywood blockbuster. We saw a field of tents where visitors stay overnight. Our place of rest was a homestay with one of the nine families that traditionally lived on the site. We heard about how much the place had changed and how the families used to trek to China to trade goods.
