Phunsukh Wangdu ( Amir khan ) saw his dream girl Kareena Kapoor come in on the scooter, dressed in as his bride in the climax scene of 3 Idiots. If you remember the beautiful lake where the whole scene was shot, that lake is Pangong Tso.
 
Pangong Tso lake is an endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km long and extends from India to Tibet. 60% of the length of the lake lies in Tibet, which is today under China's rule. The lake is 5 km wide at its broadest point. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water.
 
Pangong Tso beauty cannot be described but can only be experienced. While most do a day trip to the lake, but we highly recommend that you spend atleast a day here watching the myriad colors of the lake at different times of the day. The sunset & the sunrise are the best time to witness the sheer beauty of this place. The migratory birds add a special feel to the whole experience. Reaching the lake itself is an experience to remember. So if for want of time you are unable to do the Manali - Leh Drive then, this is a good substitute. It is a delight to your eyes and pure like a morning due, the stillness, the calmness & the beauty is so overwhelming that it will leave you mesmerized.
 
The expedition style camping is more for the adventure lovers and is not for those who would like a more comfortable stay. For the expedition style, the equipment that we use is one of the best in the world from Quechua which the leader in making high quality camping & trekking equipment.
