Nandini Bakshi, MD

Pangong Tso, located at an altitude over 14,000 feet in the Himalayas, is an 83-mile long lake shared by India and Tibet and is accessible for only a few months in the summer. Its Tibetan name translates to long, narrow enchanted lake. After a grueling long journey on rough mountain roads, the reflection of the stark, barren landscape on the crystal clear waters was breathtaking.

Dr Nandini Bakshi is a Neurologist at the Walnut Creek and Antioch Medical Centers.
