Pangong Tso (Lake), on the India/China border

Pangong Tso is a lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4500 m (14850 ft). It is 134 km long and extends from India to Tibet. Two thirds of the length of this lake falls in the People's Republic of China. It is only 8 km wide at its broadest point. In winter, the lake freezes completely despite being salt water.
