Situated around 15 kms from the sacred Diskit region in Nubra valley, Yarab Tso Lake makes it home in the serene surroundings of the Sumur village. Truly captivating is the sight of this lake which can be seen after a hike of around 20 mins uphill from the Panamaik village. Yarab Tso lake is one of the holiest and high altitude lakes in Nubra valley. The presence of crystal clear fresh water in the lake underneath the rocky and barren terrain flashes the enchanting picture of its surroundings, making the view so picturesque.
The sacred Yarab Tso lake rests in the magnetic Nubra valley, so travelling by road is the only option to reach here after some point. One can hire jeeps to get through the Nubra and travel to Sumur village in order to reach Yarab Tso lake.
Leh is the closest you can travel by air if you wish to visit the sacred lake. Kushok Bakula Rinpoche airport in Leh is well connected to the other parts of India.
Travelling via train is also an option to get close to the Nubra valley. The closest railway station to Nubra is at Jammu.
