Tso Moririi Lake is 137 km away from Leh. Our Jeep Safari drives by a fine road along right bank upstream of River Indus covering famous monasteries and villages till it reaches Chumathang in six hours. Remaining 22 km. distance is covered by driving along a rough and dusty track running through the remote countryside inhabited by nomad settlements each consisting of two-three tents here and there. It takes two hours to reach a beautiful lake Thazang. After half an hour further drive from this lake, we reach Tso Moririi Lake.
