Yarab Tso, Leh Ladakh Overview

The holy Yarab Tso lake, often referred to as "the hidden lake", is 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.

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.
