Pangong has long been a preferred camping spot for travellers to Leh-Ladakh.
Unfortunately, the recent turn of events and the constant deterioration of the site has compelled authorities to put a full stop on this treasured activity in the Pangong Lake. So, if you are planning a visit to Pangong, it will have to be strictly a day trip. Yes! The government has banned all types of camping – both ones offered by campsites and those by self-campers. An advisory has been issued instructing to not build any permanent or temporary camping around the lake.
While you may find some campsites still working on the sides, it is completely illegal – so beware!
