1. The trekkers would get to see wildlife on this trek.

This region is home to snow leopards, black wolves, bar-headed geese, Tibetan sheep, black-necked cranes, marmots, brahminy ducks, and Kiangs (Tibetan wild ass).

2. Get enchanted by the magnificent snow-covered peaks.

On this trek, the trekker would be catching sight of the twin peaks of Chamsher and Lungser Kangri, along with spectacular views of K2. Up high, Kanamo Peak comes into the picture when they trek towards Thaltak when the trekker is walking towards Chumik Shilde, where they would be seeing the Mentok series.

3. Culture and traditions the trekker would get to experience.

The trekkers could visit the local monasteries and Gompa at Chicham to experience the culture and tradition up close. They also get to see agricultural fields with water flowing in the middle.

4. The trekker would be walking past the Long Parang glacier.

As the trekker walks over the Parang glacier, they hear a gushing river below their feet. Parang Glacier is also the source of the Pare Chu River; they also get to walk along the river, a picturesque sight of a river flowing and rocky barren hills in the background.

5. There is a local lore behind the Name Tso-moriri.

There was another name for Tso-mo-riri lake in the days of yore. Tsomoriri consists of three words: Tso, which means extensive lake in Ladakhi / Spitian; Mo, which means girl, and the meaning behind Tsomoriri’s third part is fascinating.

During a winter festival in a neighbouring village, a Changpa tribesman asked his daughter to take care of their livestock herd. She got terrified after goats, yaks, and horses escaped the livestock enclosure. In the distant reflection of the frozen lake, she saw distant yaks. As she approached the lake, she saw all her yaks, horses, and goats crossing it.

Herds are controlled and directed by Changpas using the ri-ri sound. The herd didn’t hear the call and continued walking in the other direction. As she approached the herd, a ruptured ice sheet below her caused her to drown. In memory of this tragic event, the lake was named Tsomoriri by the locals.

The glasses should protect from UV rays, fit your face perfectly so it doesn’t fall while you climb, jump, or cross an obstacle, and be according to the weather conditions of the place; the glass should be made to fit different weather conditions.

  15. Daypack – All trekkers should keep in mind that a daypack is very important; this will be a great help to you while on the trek, also every single day, you won’t be carrying your backpack; therefore, for day excursions, shorter hikers, sightseeing, you can carry your stuff in it.
