Now tourists will be able to go near Pangong Lake
Some restricted areas of Ladakh are also going to open soon for tourists. There is some place in the strategic Chang Chenmo sector where people are not allowed to go at present, but after some time this place will be opened for tourists. This place is close to the patrolling point near Pangong Lake. According to the information, these areas will be opened for tourists in several phases.
According to the Times of India report, in the first phase, tourists will be allowed from 18,314 feet high Mersimik La to Tsogtsalu. It is a plain near the LAC (Line of Actual Control) near the confluence of the Rimdi Chu and Chang Chenmo rivers, about 160 km east of Leh.
These areas will get permission in the second phase
In the second phase, tourists will be allowed to go beyond Tsogtsalo to the hot spring. A memorial has also been built here paying tribute to the 10 soldiers who were killed in the attack by the Chinese Army on 21 October 1959. According to the information, the Indian Army is also ready to give full support in this. According to the Army Headquarters, the Indian Army has supported the opening of many treks and routes. It includes several areas including Hot Springs and Tsogtsalo locations, including Marsimick La.
Let us tell you, this news has come to the fore at a time where on one hand the government is focusing on the development of the border areas, while on the other hand the Ladakh administration is continuously emphasizing on the development. The local people have also been demanding this for a long time. Tourists from outside are not allowed to visit the areas near the disputed parts of LAC. At the same time, in December last year, the officials of the administration had a meeting with the officers of the local army, after which the approval was received. However, due to some changes, these places have not been opened yet.
