Rumtse to Tso Moriri trek completed details
Day 01: Leh to Rumtse
Rumtse is a small village located near the Leh-Manali highway just before the Tanglang La Pass. The drive to Rumtse has wonderful landscape especially the colourful mountains around Gya Village. Our campsite is off the road, and we have a full day to acclimatize well before setting out on our trek.
Day 02: Rumtse to Kyamar
Kyamar (4383m) is a shepherds village. The trail leads through a valley from Rumtse after crossing two rivers. We camp here for the night.
Day 03: Kyamar to Tisaling
Today is a tough day. There are two passes to be crossed – Kyamar La (4870m) and Mandalchan La (4996m). From the top of Mandalchan La the campsite at Tisaling is visible. There is a stream nearby the campsite.
Day 04: Tisaling to Pangunagu
Today’s destination gets us near Tsokar Lake. To get to Pangunagu (4398m) we have to cross the Shibuk La (5016m). The ascent is not difficult and from the top of the pass the entire lake is visible. The campsite at Pangunagu has spring water.
Day 05: Pangunagu to Nuruchan
Walking from Pangunagu to Nuruchan (4500m) is easy along the periphery of the Lake. Nuruchan is on the eastern part of the Lake. The place is quite green, has some flowering plants and the water of the lake is crystal clear. We camp here for the night.
Day 06: Nuruchan to Rachung Karu
At the starting point of the day’s walk is a beautiful Mani Wall covered with nicely engraved mantras of “OM Mani Padme Hum”, symbolizing the Buddhist prayer of compassion. The trail leads up to Horlamkongka La (4900m) and the ascent to the pass takes around an hour and a half. The descent is easy and we have to get to our campsite at Rachung Karu (4668m).
Day 07: Rachung Karu to Gyama Lhoma
Today is a long day. We begin by ascending the Kyamayur La (5125m) which takes around two hours. From the top of the pass the trail goes north east and there is a stream to be crossed. The trail starts ascending again and leads up to another small pass called Gyamai La (5100m). Once we descend from this pass we get to Gyama Lhoma.
Day 08: Gyamalhoma to Korzok (Tso Moriri Lake)
To get to our final destination we must ascend to Yalangyugu La (5100m). The ascent is easy but quite long to reach. The view from the top of the pass of Tso Moriri lake is amazing. The descend to Korzok village is steep and strenuous. The campsite is adjacent to the village.
