Tso Moriri also referred to as “Lake Moriri” or “Mountain Lake”, and is located in Changthang Plateau of Ladakh at an altitude of 4,522 m (14,836 ft). Pangong Tso is bigger in size than Tso Moriri but is divided between India and China, but Tso Moriri situated entirely within India and which is also largest in an area among high altitude lakes in India.

Pangong Lake is Ladakh’s most important tourist attraction. This sapphire stretch of Lake is situated at a height of 4350 meters and looks as if it is a piece of heaven that fell on earth. Surrounded by barren mountains, this lake is perhaps one among the foremost lovely lakes in Ladakh. Its waters, which seem to be dyed in blue, stand in unadulterated contrast to the arid mountains surrounding it. Extending to virtually a hundred and sixty kilometers, one-third of the Pangong Lake lies in India and the other two-thirds in China. In this post I shared my experience of my pangong lake tour.
If you ask a Kolkatan about his favorite biryani restaurants, Arsalan would most likely be among the top 3! Arsalan Restaurant & Caterer has reached Chinar Park as well, with their eighth outlet, opposite Spencer’s in Sukanta Pally, New Town. One of the busiest restaurants in the area, it also has a live-cooking stall. Today we 5 colleagues went Arsalan Chinar Park to have our lunch. It has a small seating arrangement in the 1st Floor & 2nd floor.
Nubra valley is a distant but not a isolated place which hooks enthusiasm of tourists and also a trekking goal. Like alternative places of Ladakh, Nubra is a high height desert land with a lack of vegetation except for river banks. The old Silk route goes through this valley. Dry land and high mountains through the spangled river are difficult to discover somewhere else. Nobody would have speculated that sand dunes may exist at such a stature height. I have shared my experience my trip to nubra valley.
