Tso Moriri, or Lake Moriri, is a high-altitude lake located in Ladakh, India. At 15,075 ft, it is the largest lake in the Trans-Himalayan region. In the local language, Tsokar translates to Salty Lake. Until 1959, salt was extracted from the lake for consumption by the locals. Because of recent threats to Tso Moriri, including road construction and the absence of garbage disposal, many conservation efforts have been initiated. It is an area rich in wildlife, vegetation, and natural beauty.
