Pangong Tso - Chushul

I am freaking out as much as I have enjoyed this drive. The memory is still fresh, there is no beauty anywhere in the world for me as close to this.

Fantastic views of Pangong Tso

TS was not allowed to proceed further as this was the last point a foriegner could come. So HVK and Jeep Captain went back to a nearby village to send TS back to Pangong Tso, and asked him to meet us again in Mahe the next day.
