Tsomoriri in the Changthang area, is a High Altitude Lake (4595m/15163ft) in Ladakh and is the largest of the High Altitude Lakes in the Trans-himalayan biogeographic region. It is located between Ladakh, India and Tibet. Tsomoriri is classified as a remnant lake, meaning that it originated from a much larger lake during glacier times. The lake is surrounded by the elevated valley of Rupshu with hills rising to 6000m. "Changpas", the nomadic migratory shepherds of yak, sheep, goats, and horses of Tibetan origin, are the main inhabitants of the area. The Korzok Monastery, on the western bank of the lake is 400 years old and attracts tourists and Buddhist pilgrims.

IMPORTANT TREK NOTES:
Whilst every effort is made to keep to the above itinerary, clients will hopefully appreciate that this is Adventure Travel in a remote mountain region. There will quite likely be changes to the itinerary in terms of anything from on-the-spot choice of campsite to when a rest day is taken. Weather conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns off the beaten track, local availability of horses or yaks, can contribute to the need for changes. The Trek guide will do everything in his power to see that you are inconvenienced as little as possible in such circumstances. Timings are approximate.
