Had stayed overnight at a Army Regiment after visiting Diskit, Nubra Valley, Hunder and Thoise. Next morning left Khalsar Village early morning at 7:00 am with packed breakfast towards Pangong Tso Lake. The drive is by the Shyok river and rather beautiful. Left for Changla thereafter but stopped on the way at a Army Regiment where I was hosted for lunch. After lunch and social interactions left for Changla pass. Reached Changla Pass at about 5:30 pm and OMG was it freezing. The chill up there was indescribable, went right down to the bones with needle like pricks and this when I had 3-4 layers of clothing including inner thermals. The air is absolutely this but is the freshest air I have ever taken in. The ice was totally frozen n slippery. At one point our car slipped n was stuck at the edge n My was that a bit scary but the driver was rather confident and got down and adjusted something out there that we were once again on our way. Just before reaching one crosses DRDO’s high altitude workstation which incidentally has got into the Limca Book of records for several reasons one amongst them being that it was the highest point where Yoga was done on International Yoga Day!!! There is a Changla Baba Temple (which I didn’t venture to go up to as couldn’t do marine taking off my boots for the darshan , May God forgive ) and also a small cafe.
