In the last scene of 3 Idiots, Pia (Kareena Kapoor) hurtles down on a scooter wearing a lehenga and rushes to meet the love of her life, Rancho (Aamir Khan) on the shores of Pangong Tso in Ladakh. The spot where this scene was shot is a small sliver of beach, running into the lake like a sandy finger and is now the most famous spot here, where a selfie is a ‘must’ for all visitors.

Pangong Tso is one of the two largest fresh water high altitude lakes in India, the other being, Tso Moriri. Both are in Ladakh and are supremely beautiful. Most tourists make a mandatory trip to Pangong Tso, but if you are up for something different, then head to the more remote Tso Moriri.
