Rumtse to Tsomori-ri lake Trek “8 Night 9 Days “ 


This journey starts after a drive to Rumtse around 85 kms from Leh near the Gya village. It crosses three passes before Tsokar Lake and another three passes after Tsokar the salt Lake. While trekking in this area, you can visit birds, wild animals and Changpa nomades grazing their herds of goats at the mountains and high passes. The mid point of the trek is Tsomoriri Lake or Korzok, the head quarter of Nomadic people. This is a unique trek across the Rupshu region in south east Ladakh- it is a starkly beautiful region of high-altitude arid plains, gentle mountain ranges and salt-water lakes, such as Tso Kar and Tso Moriri, with the only inhabitants being pastoral nomads. We will spend seven days crossing this region while going over a number of high passes before reaching the salt-water lake of Tso Moriri.
