Yarab Tso, Leh Ladakh Overview

The holy Yarab Tso lake is often referred to as "the hidden lake" and the best-kept secret of Ladakh. Located near the Sumur Village, approximately 15 km from Diksit in the Leh Ladakh region, this gorgeous lake can only be reached by hiking uphill for 20 minutes. The enchanting lake with crystal clear water, set amidst the contrasting rocky surrounding makes it a truly spectacular site. Tucked away from the populace, the sense of calmness experienced on visiting Yarab Tso makes up for the rather difficult hike.

Regarded as one of the holiest and high altitude lakes in the Nubra Valley, Yarab Tso is highly revered among the locals of the region. It is advised not to wash your feet or try to swim in this enrapturing lake. Simply sit by the rocks, breathing in the unpolluted mountain air, relishing the site of colourful prayer flags fluttering around the crystal clear aquamarine water and experience the sense of calmness it brings.
