Blue in Between
Tso Moriri Ladakh

This was taken on my last year’s trip to Ladakh. I had seen many images of this majestic lake and wanted to shoot it differently. This lake is mesmerising because of the extreme shades of nature with barren mountains on one side and lush green wetland on the other with pristine blue lake separating the two. The moment I saw this, I knew I had to create a frame. I just did my recce for the right spot and clicked it the moment I found one. Love the frame personally because it has varying shades of nature.

Tsomoriri is a lake in the Changthang (literally: northern plains) area in Jammu and Kashmir. The lake is at an altitude of 4,595 m (15,075 ft). It is the largest of the high altitude lakes in the Trans-Himalayan biogeographic region, entirely within India. The lake sits between Ladakh, India to the North, Tibet to the east, and Zanskar in the west.

New on 500px : Long and Enchanted Lake by Angshu by Angshu

Just about 160 km from Leh is a beautiful lake named the Pangong Tso or Lake in Ladakh. Situated at a height of about 13,900 ft, the name Pangong is a derivative of the Tibetan word Banggong Co meaning “long, narrow, enchanted lake”. One third of the lake is in India while the remaining two thirds lies in Tibet, which is controlled by China. Majority of the streams which fill the lake are located on the Tibetan side. Pangong Tso is about five hours drive from Leh in Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir. The route passes through beautiful Ladakh countryside, over Chang La, the third highest motorable mountain pass (5289 m) in the world.
