The lake is also a popular tourist destination and a lot of people visit the lake to experience its unique beauty. There are many camping sites around the lake, and visitors can also take a stroll along its banks.
One of the less well-known lakes, Tso Moriri is a display of huge magnificence, finished off with the luck of serenity. ‘Tso’ represents a lake, and ‘Moriri’ for a mountain and that is actually what you will discover in wealth over yonder.
