Another one of ladakh's gems. The place is a bird watchers paradise. The salt deposits on the far side are also an intriguing visual of natures many formations.

This is a lake with swamp and salt deposits around, perfect breeding ground for the rare black neck crane. We saw two black neck cranes in all their glory. Underrated but a very important lake from a ecological perspective. Ladakh never ceases to amaze you!

This was an interesting place to visit - the lake itself is drying up and leaving a large amount of salt deposits on the lake bed. It's in the middle of nowhere, even for Leh. I was told that it's a very old lake. It's...More
