I am traveling to Leh and plan on visiting Changthang Wildlife Sanctuary. What is the best way of exploring it and will I require a permit?

The easiest way to explore the Changthang Cold Desert Wildlife Sanctuary is to visit the three lakes- Tso Moriri(4,595 m), Tso Kar (4,530 m), and Pangong Tso (4,080 m) which are easily accessible from Leh. A trip to all three lakes can take around 4-5 days. The recommended route is Leh-Pangong Tso-Hanle-Tso Moriri-Tso Kar-Leh. Pangong Tso is just 150 km away, but a six-hour drive from Leh, and because of its accessibility, the most popular with tourists. Around 150 km south of Pangong is the village of Hanle, recently opened to tourists. It has a monastery and the Indian Astronomical Observatory, known to be the world’s highest observatory at 4,500 metres. Tso Moriri is much farther from Leh, and requires 2 days of travel. Close to Tso Moriri is another saltwater lake called Tso Kar that provides the habitat for rare species of bird like the black-headed goose. The truly adventurous and fit can do exploratory trek, through the region, offered by a few specialist operators.

Tso Kar and the wetland of Tso Moriri are prime breeding ground for migratory waterbirds. June os breeding season and ideal time to visit the area. Other wildlife is also easy to spot.

Getting there

Cars and jeeps with a driver can be hired from Leh for the entire trip (Rs 5,000 per day for a large jeep). Permits are needed to enter the Sanctuary, but these are easily arranged by tour operators.

The Sanctuary is accessible only between the months of June and October. June is the nesting season and hence best time to visit.
