A video of Indian soldiers dancing next to Pangong Tso Lake in India's Ladakh Union Territory has gone viral after the Indian Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Kiren Rijiju posted in on Twitter.
Two soldiers, dressed in the typical olive green uniform of the Indian Army, can be seen shaking a leg or two to a folk song playing loudly in the background. More soldiers, seated on chairs with musical instruments at their feet, look on.
In the distance the famous lake is visible, which has made the news recently for more serious reasons.
