Ladakh made history by successfully completing its first 21-kilometer trail running event in sub-zero temperatures at 13,862 feet high Pangong Tso, which was registered in the Guinness World Records as the world’s highest frozen lake half marathon, reported the Economic Times.

Located on the border of India and China, the 700-square-kilometer Pangong Lake has a winter temperature of minus 30 degrees Celsius, causing the saltwater lake to freeze over.
