The breathtaking Rushpu Valley cradles the wintery oasis that is Tsomoriri Saltwater Lake. Though the trip from Leh is long and arduous, the sheer majesty of the Ladakh landscape will keep you invested in the ride. Following the river, you’ll know you’re close when the water suddenly widens, delivering you into a green and clue paradise. High peaks loom over the cold, marshy wetlands leading to the lake, feeding it with melting ice, creating the largest among the Ladakhian high lakes. The grass here is bright green, the water is sky blue.
The lake supports little aquatic life, but makes up for it by being home to a fantastic variety of birds. Less commercialized than Pangong Tso, the lake is more serene. The nearby Korzok Village provides sleeping and camping amenitites.
