#Pangonglake#pangongtso#ladakh#leh#jammukashmir Pangong Tso ( Tibetan : སྤང་གོང་མཚོ , Wylie : spang gong Tibetan for "high grassland lake", also referred to as Pangong Lake , is an
endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km (83 mi) long and extends from India to China . Approximately 60% of the length of the lake lies in China. The lake is 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its broadest point. All together it covers 604 km 2 . During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water . It is not a part of Indus river basin area and geographically a separate land locked river basin. 
The lake is in the process of being identified under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance. This will be the first trans-boundary wetland in South Asia under the convention.
Flora, fauna and geography
Eastern part of the lake is fresh, with the content of
total dissolved solids at 0.68 g/L. Western part of the lake is saline, with the salinity . The brackish water of the lake has very low micro-vegetation. Guides report that there are no fish or other aquatic life on the Indian side of the lake, except for some small crustaceans . On the other hand, visitors see numerous ducks and gulls over and on the lake surface. There are some species of scrub and perennial herbs that grow in the marshes around the lake.
The lake acts as an important breeding ground for a variety of birds including a number of migratory birds. During summer, the Bar-headed goose and
Brahmini ducks are commonly seen here  . The region around the lake supports a number of species of wildlife including the kiang and the Marmot . The lake hosts large quantities of fish, especially
Schizopygopsis stoliczkai  and Racoma labiata  .
Formerly, Pangong Tso had an outlet to Shyok River , a tributary of Indus River , but it was closed off due to natural damming. Two streams feed the lake from the Indian side, forming marshes and wetlands at the edges.  Strand lines above current lake level reveal a 5 m (16 ft) thick layer of mud and laminated

Or was it simply something they found to be of no use? We will never know..
