Pangong Lake, situated at 14,000 feet (4,267 m), is a long narrow basin of inland drainage, hardly six to seven kilometers at its widest point and over 135 km long. About 1/3rd of the lake is under Indian occupation and remaining under China. The Chinese border is just beyond the mountains across the lake. Spangmik, 7 km along the southern shore from the head of the lake is the farthest point to which foreigners are permitted. There are spectacular views of the mountains of Changchenmo range to the north and their shimmering reflection in the ever-changing blues and greens of the lake's brackish waters is breathtaking. Above Spangmik are the glaciers and snow-capped peaks of the Pangong range. Spangmik and other scattered tiny villages along the lake's southern shore are the summer homes of a scanty population of Chang-pa, the semi-nomadic herdsmen of Tibet and southeast Ladakh. The Pangong Chang-pa cultivate sparse crops of barely and peas in summers. During the winters that they pack their Camps (rebo) and take their flocks of sheep and Pashmina goats out to the distant pastures.
