At Karu we take a detour and start ascending to cross the Ladakh range over Chang-La (5,475 M / 17950 ft). At the foot of the pass on the other side we reach Tangse. The valley is blessed with beautiful stream flowing through it starting from the lake giving a greenish tincture to the otherwise dry landscape around. Wait for the Marmots calling you out. However, the main attraction of this circuit is the grand Pangong which you would reach by early afternoon. Overnight in Pangong.
Day 07: Pangong-Tso – Tsomoriri (the road less taken): After Breakfast head for a route famously known as road less traveled. Enroute visit the Tangste, Harong and chusul.
