A sapphire set amidst a stark scenery, the gorgeous Tso Moriri Lake is one of the most beautiful sites of the Ladakh region. Nestled in the Changthang Valley, this 28-km-long pristine waterbody is also called Mountain Lake as it is surrounded by a number of tall peaks. At any time of the day, you can spot several feathered friends fluttering about and the lake has now been named a wetland reserve. Some of the popular avifauna you can spot are the bare-headed goose, great-crested grebe, Brahmin duck and brown-headed gulls. Tourists can also spot some varieties of fauna like bharal or blue sheep, marmots, Tibetan sheep, red fox and kiang or Tibetan ass. The lake also boasts a large population of the Himalayan hare. Tso Moriri is a popular stopover for those on a mountain biking adventure. Ladakhis consider it a sacred lake.
