Rupshu is a fascinating expanse of high altitude desert - stretching to about 15000sq km and seldom below 4500m, in the southeast part of Ladakh. It is inhabited by the Changpa Nomads who mostly move with their herds of sheep & yak and live in black yak-haircloth tents. Only a few places have permanent dwellings - at Korzok, Thugctse, Chamar & Hanle etc. Its most remarkable features are a 150sq km lake called TsoMoriri - the lowest place in this desert, the Pangpolungpa or the Rupshu Ice-Cap, and 19 peaks more than 6000m high that dot this strange desert.
A wide variety of wildlife is also visible both in land & water - Skyang (Tibetan wild ass), phya (marmots), hare etc. and migratory birds like brahmani duck, wild geese, black neck cranes etc.
