Trek Over View:

The trek from Rumtse to Tso Moriri lake, also known as the Rupshu trek, is one of the most beautiful treks in the whole Himalayan region. During this 7-day trek, you will cross the Changthang region and get to admire the stunning landscapes of the Tibetan plateau. You will discover two high-altitude lakes: Tso Kar lake where you might spot the majestic black-necked crane found in only Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and some part of southeast Asia. The other rare birds are also found in this area, and the magnificent Tso Moriri lake which is the end point of the trek.

The trek from Rumtse to Tso Moriri takes you to remote areas where you will not find any villages for days. Therefore, you will need to carry tents and bring food supplies from Leh. If you are lucky, you may come across Changpa nomads who inhabit the region with their yaks and pashmina goats. Before starting the trek, you will need to get a special permit in order to access this part of Ladakh.

This trek is rated as difficult due to its average altitude always above 4,500m and because it crosses six mountain passes above 5,000m. When you reach Tso Moriri lake on the 7th day, you should spend the night in Korzok and the taxi will take you back from Korzok to Leh on the next day. Indeed, it is better to have some time to relax at the lake before driving back to Leh.
