Tso Moriri and Tso Kar

The Tso Kar and Tso Moriri trip focuses on the Chang Thang plateau in east Ladakh, the western fringe of the Tibetan high-altitude plateau, on the border with Tibet. In this area a lot of wandering nomads with their herds of yaks, goats and sheep can be found. Highlighting the tour are the two turquoise-coloured lakes of Tsomoriri and Tsokar, both at an altitude of around 4.500m. Tso Moriri Lake is about 220km to the south of Leh in the nomad area called Korzok, with a small monastery in Korzok village. Tso Kar (150km south from Leh) is a brackish lake in the nomad area called Samad Rokchen and harbours a big variety of birds, amongst which the rare Brahmin Ducks and occasional pairs of Black-Necked Cranes. The village of Thukje at Tso Kar has a nice monastery.
