With snow covered peaks, pleasing alpines, unproductive landscape and blue water, Ladakh is one of the famous trekking destinations across the globe. It has given origin to many beautiful lakes. Out of all, the most inspiring lake is Tsomoriri Lake also known as “Mountain Lake”
It is also counted as the largest lake among all high altitude lakes of India. Tsomoriri Lake extends from the western Tibet to the eastern Ladakh. With maximum depth of 248 feet, Tso Moriri Lake is bordered by barren hills, with the scenery of beautiful snowy mountains.
This lake is acknowledged for varying its turquoise blue color with the change in light. It is enclosed with many beautiful landscapes. Tsomoriri lake trekking tour can offer you a lifetime experience along with the chance to closely watch over the traditional lifestyle of the travellers from different countries of the world. You can spot red Fox, “Kyang” (wild ass) and hardly found snow Leopard. Also, you can see the geese and black-necked cranes gathered beside the lake especially during breeding period in summer season. Watching these hardly seen creatures will surely please you.
This area is accessible only for a few months in the summer season and is occupied by Changpas- nomadic shepherds and Pashmina goat herders of Tibetan origin that walk in this area and cross high mountain ranges. A Tsomoriri Lake trek in summer can be enjoyable and offer an unforgettable experience. You can come across a unique human culture, which is truly isolated from the modern and advance world.
