One of the most beautiful treks in Ladakh starts at Rumtse and ends at the famous Tsomoriri lake at 4500 Mtrs. Rumtse is situated 70 Kms east of Leh, the starting point of this Ladakh trek. Rupshu valley lies sandwiched between Ladakh in the north, Tibet in the east and Zanskar in the west. It is a part of the Changthang plateau and is characterized by high arid plains, nomads, high pasturelands, snow-capped peaks.

To the south east of Leh lies a region that is still less frequented by tourists. The area borders the Changtang Plateau of Tibet. Amidst a barren landscape lives small groups of nomadic Chang tribesmen leading a harsh existence. Tucked away in a remote area of this region at an altitude of 14432 ft. is one of nature’s wonders - the lake of Tso Moriri. The 15-by-5 mile lake is a breeding ground to birds like the bar-necked geese and the brahminy duck. The surrounding area is home to some rare Indian Wildlife such as the Kyang (wild ass), blue sheep, marmots and the snow leopard.

The starting point of Tso Moriri Trek is Rumtse (4100m) which is approximately 70 kms. from Leh. The route traverses across 8 high passes and while the scenery is spectacular the entire route is through high altitude and requires good acclimatization. Rumtse Trek is definitely one of the most enjoyable treks. This trek gives you the opportunity to interact with tibetan nomads settlements, opportunity to explore Tsomoriri lake and also more chance to watch wild animals and wild birds of Ladakh. There are around eight pass in this trek and the highest pass is Kyamayuru La (5450m) in altitude
