A group friends Out for a ride headed to Merak village which is about an hour ride from Start of the Pangong lake. Merak is a small Village where you will find 2-3 homestay options, however any local will ACCOMMODATE you for a nominal amount. The village is serene and at the foothills of snow clad peaks. The Ride though long is worth for anyone who wants to experience nature and get away from people.
You can see a lot of vegetation in the form of bushes and trees in the village as some of it is protected by the J&K forest department.
Also there is a space observatory being constructed at a distance of 3 kms from the village.
We spend the night star-gazing in absolute silence and also witnessed the sun-rise. Go there for a full pangong experience you will love it
