Tso Kar is a fluctuating salt lake located in the Rupshu Plateau of scenic Ladakh Valley. It is popularly known as the White Lake owing to the white salt deposits it leaves on the shores. Tso Kar Lake is the most peaceful and calm of the three high-altitude lakes (Pangong Lake and Tso Moriri) and also the smallest of the three.
Tso Kar hosts varied flora and fauna attracting a horde of bird watchers, especially during the migration season. The common birds found here are Brahmin ducks, bar-headed geese and great crested grebe. The main attraction, however, is the black-necked crane. The black-necked cranes, known for their fidelity, come to Tso Kar to lay eggs. There are only a few yak sheds, a monastery and a couple of nomadic families in the surrounding. The view of the lake at night in the moonlight is even more stunning.
