Good Hotels or Accommodation options near Tso Moriri – Ladakh

Other articles in this series on Preferred Hotels or Accommodation options in Leh – Ladakh –

In this fifth and final article of the series – Good Hotels or Accommodation options near Tso Moriri Lake, I am enlisting down some of the preferred places to stay around Tso Moriri lake – Ladakh which range from Rs 700-800 per person and goes beyond Rs 5000 for a camp or room for two depending upon comfort, meal plan and facilities they offer. Tso Moriri lake is a remote place and though accommodation options are good in number but fairly limited to tented accommodation or home stays. You can refer the list of below guest houses or hotels or camping resorts compiled after reading various resources/reviews of many people over Internet mainly IndiaMike and BCMT forums (as said earlier, of course, I cannot stay in all of them 😉 ).

Heavenly Colors of Tso Moriri Lake

You cannot find accommodation at Tso Moriri lake on the banks because it is restricted to pitch the camps there being a wetland reserve and sanctuary for migratory birds. You can pitch the tents near the other tented colonies pitched just before Korzok village or find an accommodation in Korzok village. Both ways you will definitely have a clear and broad view of the 24 KM in length, 6 KM in width this magnificent blue colored high altitude lake – Tso Moriri (Tsomoriri Wetland Conservation Reserve).

Most of these places are ideal to stay and offer decent comfort and facilities which a family may require but as I said earlier for Pangong Tso, you need to compromise on certain things if budget is a constraint in your travel. You need to keep in mind that Tso Moriri lake is a remote place and one cannot expect all the luxury in the world even after paying Rs 3000 per night. At Tso Moriri, getting a place to stay with attached toilet is a luxury in itself ;)…

Hotels or Accommodation options in/around Tso Moriri Lake
    • Tsomoriri Camp and Resort Tso Moriri, Korzok
      Very near to Tso Moriri lake and just before the Korzok Village. Very much Recommended Nice place to stay with family being very clean, comfortable and having attached toilets with running cold water. Hot water in buckets. Along with luxury/Swiss tents, some rooms (5 in number) are also available. It is the only tented colony very near to Tso Moriri lake having some rooms too apart from tents though charges of rooms are more than camps. Pricing depends upon bargaining and how you book. Landing there directly with sometime in the day left will definitely help you get a better deal. Pre-booking is always going to be expensive but have peace of mind that you have a place to stay at least.

[UPDATE, 01-02-1015]: Tsomoriri Camp and Resort is run by its owner only. Along with other OTAs (online travel agents), they have also tied up with Offbeat Escapes, who offer special discounted rates to all the readers of DoW Website and have had exceptional feedback from many of our readers in the past 2 years. Also, please beaware that other OTAs including some very famous camping companies might give you some other camp in the name of this recommended Tsomoriri Camp and Resort saying that it is full as per many reports over net. Hence, we believe in the services of the Offbeat Escapes more than other agents as they first book and then take money from you as suggested by other readers. So, even if you choose other OTAs, do make sure that you have confirmed booking on this camp only before you paying anything to them.

  • Nomadic Life Camp – Tso Moriri, Korzok
    Very near to Tso Moriri lake. Nice place to stay but expensive if you pre-book. You can bargain if you land directly and get a good deal. Shared as well as attached toilets, depending upon the price you pay. Nice, tasty food.Warning Comments by HV Kumar

    Nomadic Life Camps – definitely good, but bargain hard, they will come down. I have got good rates for tents that are priced at Rs 3000 – at Rs 800 and Rs 1000. However, on one occasion, we got terrible treatment, they were salivating over some white tourists, treated us with total disdain (just because we bargained and got a good deal), denied us bath towels, we had to beg for hot water and the food that they served us was not the ones they offered the “full”-rate white tourists. I will never stay there again

Other Tips for Hotels or Accommodation near Tso Moriri – Ladakh
  • In off/late season (late September types or early October), it will be difficult to get accommodation at Tso Moriri as most of the tents pack up and cold starts to bite in as well. In such a case, opting for some guest house or home stay at Korzok Village is a good idea. Always advisable to carry your own Sleeping bags at least in case you prefer more hygiene over being happy go lucky types.
  • At remote regions such as Tso Moriri, Korzok, Pangong Tso, Sarchu where accommodation options are barely limited to tented colonies and other accommodation options are far away, there is always an advantage in bargaining the early you reach in the day at such places. So, if you need good deal at such remote regions like Tso Moriri try to reach the place well before the sunset and then bargain hard. This will give you an opportunity to explore more options while bargaining and camp/tent owners will be more responsive to bargaining.
  • If you have time, then you can always visit the camps of Changpa Nomads of Changthang region located on meadow above Korzok Village. It is a nice experience talking to this unique human culture and getting to know the hardships of their lifestyle is seriously an experience of a lifetime for modern aged people like us.
Conclusion

I hope you find the above list of hotels or accommodation options near Tso Moriri Lake – Ladakh useful for your upcoming Leh – Ladakh trip.
