    TSO Moriri is becoming a destination that many tourists are asking about, and I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate a thread on the things to do in TSO Moriri.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    • Hiking: There are many hiking trails around Tso Moriri, offering stunning views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
    • Birdwatching: Tso Moriri is a great place for birdwatching. Over 200 species of birds have been spotted in the area, including flamingos, pelicans, and herons.
    • Relaxing: Tso Moriri is a great place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. There are many camps and guesthouses located around the lake, where you can stay and enjoy the scenery.
    • Visiting the Korzok Monastery: The Korzok Monastery is a Buddhist monastery located near Tso Moriri. It is a popular tourist destination, and offers stunning views of the lake.
    • Visiting the Kyagar Tso Lake: The Kyagar Tso Lake is a smaller lake located near Tso Moriri. It is a great place to go for a swim or a boat ride.
    Apart from the above the destination has stunning scenery where you can just gaze and relax.

    Some points to take into mind are:
    • The best time to visit Tso Moriri is during the summer months (June-September). The weather is warm and sunny, and the lake is at its most beautiful.
    • Tso Moriri is a high-altitude lake, so it is important to acclimatize before you visit. Drink plenty of water and take it easy for the first few days.
    • There are no ATMs or petrol stations in Tso Moriri, so it is important to stock up on supplies before you go.
