Photographer's Note

This is Lake Tso Moriri in south east of Leh in Ladakh district in India.
This is a breathtaking 7 km wide and 19 km long lake at the altitude of 4000 m above sea level. This lake surrounded by snowclad mountains is near India China border but completely in the Indian territory unlike Pengong which extends into Chinese territory. The breathtaking blue shade seen in the image is the one which is witnessed in reality by an onlooker.

Though the beauty of the lake is spellbound, the living conditions are harsh ....The lake gets completely frozen in winters..In october when this image was taken, one can see the ice sleet formation near the banks in the image also.
