Welcome to Tso Moriri Loop

In compensation, few tourists come to Tso Moriri, and you'll have a fair chance of encountering nomadic shepherds. The easiest way to visit is on a two- or three-day loop from Leh, overnighting at Korzok.

Trips loop back to Leh via Puga's minor salt-crusted springs and mini-geysers then pass close to Tso Kar, a large briny lake whose main attraction is for birdwatchers spotting illusive black-necked cranes. Seasonal accommodation is available in nearby Thukye, a tiny shepherd's hamlet.

Foreigners require permits for Tso Moriri. Indian citizens with special permits from Leh DCO, may continue from Mahe to Hanle, with its astronomical observatory.
