If I am taking the road from Manali to Leh, I was clear that Tso Kar and Tso Moriri cant be missed. And not only was I correct, I indeed will cherish always, to have taken that decision. We started off early from Tso Kar, though the distance is only about 90 km between these two places, since one thing... More

Lake Tso Moriri is preceded by Lake Kiagar, a lesser known lake with amazing emerald blue water. We were so awestruck by the beauty of this lesser known lake that after an hour or so we finally realised that we have to cover quiet some more hilly terrains to finally arrive to our destination..Tso Moriri. The road continued down a... More

What can I say about this. I had heard a lot about Pangong but before starting for Ladakh I had done some research on Tso Moriri as well. Not so well known since no movie has been shot here and also the tracks which leads to Tso Moriri are bit rough and bumpy. But when you get there, its a... More

If you're looking for some downtime and want to rejuvenate yourself by indulging in some soul searching - just head to Tso Moriri and hit one of the hills on the banks where some of the migrants stay. You'll find yourself humbled by the sheer beauty and this wonder of nature. Snow capped mountains, crystal blue waters and clouds dancing... More

While most people and guides/hotels Dnt encourage tourists to go to lake moriri however is splendour and breath taking landscape can be explained only on visiting. Between May to Aug you will find many tent accommodations there however normal rooms are very few in fact just 3 good places with rooms.. The rooms and hotels are very basic but people... More

Visited Ladakh - 15th -26th Sep 2016. From Spangmik (Pangong Lake) we used the "road less travelled" to Tso Moriri lake (~ 14,500ft) - via Chusul. This is an amazing route (no road; much sandy trails) with greats scenery. Approx 260 kms, took 8 hours (Innova car) incl stops for photos, tea and lunch. The best decision - we stayed... More

This is not so famous lake, but you have to visit it to believe it - that this is the best of LEH. Our trip was awesome to place. All facilities available here.

Tso Moriri didn't overwhelm me with its beauty or ambiance. It was nice but I didn't get any wow factor. Given the option, I'd prioritise Pangong over Moriri. I found the village of Karzok one of my least favourite in Spiti/Ladakh. The people are friendly but the accom is overpriced (I guess understandable given the remote location) and the village...
