Ladakh and Tibet were under the sea bed a few million years ago and when the Indian subcontinent collided with the (todays) Asian land mass forming the Himalayas, many large saltwater lakes remained as evidence of the undersea life. Tso Moriri is one such lake located in the remote southern part of Ladakh bordering Tibet and Spiti in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

The land, like most of Tibet, is in the rain shadow area of the Himalayas and is an arid desert. Most of Ladakh and Tibet is also located at an average altitude of 12,000 ft and much above the tree-line. Tso Moriri is at an altitude of 15,000 ft.
