Remember the movie ‘3 Idiots’? Aamir Khan’s character lives in Ladakh and Kareena Kapoor meets him at a pristine lake?
That lake is the Pangong Lake – the Highest Saltwater Lake in the World! It is located at an altitude of 4225 metres above sea level (13,860 feet)!
Only 40% of this 134 km long lake is in India. Rest of it is in China.
Since Ladakh is at a very high altitude, AMS is very common amongst visitors.
Symptoms include breathing trouble, with headaches, nose bleeds, stomach upsets etc.
Acclimatising is very essential and ideally, the first day must be spent resting in the room.
Should you get altitude sickness or AMS, you will have no further recourse but to abort the trip.

MISHA & JOHNSON, MUMBAI
To be honest, I wasn’t very comfortable with someone else planning my trip. But all those apprehensions were put to rest once I spoke with Ritu. She went beyond just asking for our trip budget and asked us about what we like doing on vacations, what kind of stay we prefer, activities, food preference and a lot more. She designed the itinerary to perfection. We didn’t have to worry about anything!!!
