Location: Road to Merak (4285 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: India      Date: 17-08-2015
The largest and perhaps most beautiful lake of the Changtang plateau, as seen a few curves beyond the point (actually, nothing but its NW end) commonly reached by tourists.

18 HF, Canon G1X, 112 mm, f/5.8, 1/640 sec.


...if there is a panorama from anywhere in the world: It´s Alberto ... :-)

Nice, now we know where you've been the last weeks :-)

Perfect Shape.

Mi stavo giusto chiedendo dove eri finito questa volta...

We are looking forward to the next 20 panoramas. Regards Peter

Is this really part of Chang Tang? I would have looked for the region of that name much farther to the east. KR Wilfried

Exotic, spectacular! The colors and structures of the mountains are similar to the Siloli desert pano from Jens Vischer.

Wilfried: actually, this should be the very W end of the so-called Chang Tang, whose intersection with India consists substantially of the two lakes Pangong and Tso Moriri, and of the mysterious valleys in between. I write mysterious because the whole region is closed to visitors. Also here, on the S shore of Pangong, you can go no further than the police check-post at Merak. Please be patient, and you will see a panorama even of it...

Other questions: I will post Pangong howtos later, when the support of the GPS tracks will be at hand.

The exotic nature of the place is almost absurd - so unknown to me. KR Jan.

Spectacular. Now I had just understood your were in the Lefka Ori this summer, but apparently Italian teachers seem to enjoy about as much disposable time as the prejudice says about German teachers... For some continuity, the mountains on the left are not that much different from the Lefka Ori, but higher...
Was this also with the bike?
Cheers, Martin

Yes, it was by bicycle. Since the itinerary for coming here included the crossing of eight Himalayan passes, four of which above 5300 metres, it is difficult to describe in a few dozens of words, like modernity requires.
I hope that with future panoramas and subsidiary material such as GPS tracks the interested Betrachter will start to grasp something.
