Quite excited to visit Pangsau pass and see the mysterious Lake of no return in the Indo- Myanmar border. Great view of the lake from the Pangsau village of Myanmar

First of all not sure why Trip Advisor is listing the lake in Arunachal Pradesh as actually it is one the Myanmar side.

My visit to the lake was coinciding with the Pangsu Pass Winter Festival 2013 being held on the India side.It was nothing sort of adventurous for us when on the first day of the tour we managed to get our passes to cross over, thanks to the travel agency Help Tourism. The two kms till the army post on the India side and then the 5 km of no man's land is surely one tough terrain My imagination ran riot when I imagined how the entire route must have been during the WW II when the allied forces marched on here. Me and my three friends felt as if we were taking a part in the history of that land. Once on crossing the border, we spent little time at the Burma Bazar but still wanted to try our luck visiting the lake . At the army post we were told that the time is over for visiting the lake and we should try our luck the next day. But as they say lady luck does has its own ways . I could manage to locate a Burmese security personnel, who I intuitively felt will help us in our tryst with the lake. And he did , of course going beyond his official duty..:-) We were allotted two bikes . The 12 km ride was extremely bumpy but the bikers were nice. They made a halt at a village where we were welcomed with tea ( mind you, they were not having the tea but somehow managed to get it a from a house and yes, they did not charge for the tea). Felt so so homely there in those few minutes that we spent while going as well as during our return.. They even gave wooden cups as present.Apart from this village halt, we did not see any other soul all along our way to the lake.

The last bit of the journey to the lake was a bit slussy . We managed to cross over that patch and walked on...All of us were lost for words to describe our feeling on being there.Clean n neat , felt totally untouched. Felt as if we were in heaven.As it was turning dark soon , clicked photos to our heart's content and returned back to the border and back to Jairampur.

All in all an unforgettable journey of our life time!!!

PS : At this point I would like to mention that we were extremely lucky to be there on day 1 as the next day on wards, the place seemed to have been littered with bottles and plastics as told by others who went there the next day.

Not at all a place to visit. Seeing the number of visitors I actually thought that we are approaching a grt8 destination. But after reaching there all enthusiasm vanished. There is absolutely nothing. It is situated in the border of India and Myanmar and also known as Lake Nongyang in Myanmar. It is situated in the Burmese land and also can be viewed from Pangsau Pass. But we decided to enter Myanmar and reach the lake. We had to walk around 2 kms of hilly area to reach the market area. From there we took bike for hire to reach the lake. There was actually no road. Somehow we reached the lake. There is lot to do by the Government to make it a tourist destination.
