Lakes in leh ladakh

Ladakh is not without its share of natural, visual marvels and lakes are a big part of its humbling landscapes. Within the modest landmass it occupies, the Cold Desert of Kashmir has 3 beautiful lakes - Pangong Tso Lake, Tsomoriri Lake and Tsokar Lake - each more awe inspiring than the other. In fact, not many know that the Pangong Tso changes colors with every hour and turns from emerald green color to varying hues of sky and velvet blue.
The best time to visit these lakes is in summers (May to July). During the winters, these lakes get frozen and become so solid that they are better used as roads. This page enlists and elaborates on the 3 lakes in Ladakh. Each lake is explained individually with handy information about its location, altitude and suggested activities.
