Sunset at Tso Moriri

First sunset on arrival at Tso Moriri

Distant Tibetan mountains

Amazing mushroom cloud over Tibet

Sunsets are particularly gorgeous here at this high-altitude lake. The lake is 27 kms long & around 8 kms at its widest point. With the sun’s glow in the late afternoon hours, the lake shimmers a wonderful turquoise shade. And surrounded by mountains, including two of Ladakh’s highest summits bathed in snow, it truly is a sight to behold. And, apart from the barking dogs, braying mules (in what seems to be mating season), & the occasional mooing cow, it’s very peaceful here also.
