    Lake at 14k feet!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Standing at the edge of India's Pangong Lake, Krakatao photographed his wife Lina surrounded by the icy waters and the towering Himalayas on June 21. The endorheic lake is in the region of Ladakh, which means the land of high passes. The area lies between two sets of mountain ranges, the Kunlun and the Himalayas. "The whole atmosphere looks heavenly,” he said. "The lake is pleasant and is a great accompaniment to the stretch of snowcapped mountains.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    At the Pangong Tso (lake) which separates Indian and China, we went gaga, seeing the Himalayan Range and the colour-changing lake. It was cold wind which greeted us as we got out of the car. It grew colder as we got down to the bank. When my wife drove her fingers on the water freeze gripped her immediately. I looked up to the firmament. This is heaven!
