Shimla | Oh, the beauty of it all!

I can’t capture in pictures/videos what was! It was something that cannot be explained in words or captured in a camera; it can only be experienced! The landscape looked like something straight out of a fairy tale; I have never seen something as beautiful and surreal. I did not take a lot of pictures from my camera, because the landscape was overwhelming. All I could do was stare in wonder…

Taken at Pangong lake, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, India

Pangong Lake is an endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km (83 mi) long and extends from India to Tibet. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water. It is not part of Indus river basin area and geographically a separate land locked river basin. Pangong Tso is in disputed territory. The Line of Actual Control passes through the lake. Pangong Tso is still a delicate border point along the Line of Actual Control. Incursions from Chinese side are common.
