Firstly, if you are planning to visit Ladakh, you must have at least 1 night stay at Pangong Lake. Secondly, you must stay at Camp Watermark. Tented accomodation are very basic with no frill amenities. At such a remote location you can't ask for more. Friendly staff and reasonably OK food. (some may call it bad) But the location is...

Stayed in Watermark Camps on my recent trip to Pangong Tso.. Clean, friendly hosts, wonderful scenary views would describe this place in short. Since it was just before the recent floods, the weather had been very cold. At around 8.30 PM, came to our rooms to provide us with hot water bags.. Did not expect that. Besides the tent insulates...

This is a tented accommodation of about average quality. The location is fantastic being on the edge of the Pangong Tso and one could sit outside the tent enjoying the panorama of the hills and ever changing colour of the lake waters. The Camp itself left much to be desired, even though it is in such a remote place. The... More

We reached there from Leh after facing snowfall on the way. It was chilling cold (they said it was minus 10 - couldn't cross check personally). The heavy winds made us shiver - wondering if we would get thrown away to the faraway mountains on the Chinese side. But the Tent made us withstand all these. Fantastic bed with good... More

Let me start by saying that, don't expect service like hotels, since this is a temporary camp, running only for 4-5 months. Now, coming to location, this camp is right on the lake and food was excellent (only veg food though). These couple of things that should make up for anything else found wanting like tent size, temporary toilets (although... More

Camp Watermark - The worst camp ever seen. No warm water, no proper cushions, no quilts. People operating the camp are decoits. Charged Rs 1500 for one hour bonfire. Bad food. No proper cutlery to have meals. No warm water to take bath. Toilets have just standing space. They are operating on lease model on a local's land and giving... More

even though it has the best location (bang on the lake), the re-refurbishment of the tents leave a lot to desire. This is the third time we stayed (earlier being June 2011, Aug 2012) here; and the management decided to have new tents, however, in doing so, reduced the bathing and toilet area, creating space constraints. The food quality is... More

Stayed there on 30th May, 2014. The location just besides the Pangong lake is excellent. The facilities provided are basic but considering the remote location we thought it was a very good job done. We were provided with decent food and the service provided was good. Electricity is a problem at Pangong. They use generator which is switched off at... More

In the sub zero temperatures that we faced at night, any tent of this sort seems flimsy. The howling winds don't help at all! What does help is that though absolutely basic, the staff takes care to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible in such conditions. There are no electricity points anywhere, except the one CFL in the... More
