Karzok or Korzok is a village in the Leh district of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is located in the Nyoma tehsil, in Rupshu region and block, on the shore of Tso Moriri lake. It is among the highest towns in the world. Various sources give slightly different measurements of the altitude from 15,075 ft. (4,595 metres) to 14,995 feet (4,570 m) above sea level. The Drukpa Buddhist Korzok Monastery is located here.
The village has several houses, and the nomadic population which establishes their tents (made of yak hair or skin) in summer, adds to the agricultural operations in the region. The tents are provided with vents at the top to let out smoke. Pashmina is the valuable product that the Changmas trade along with the salt that they extract from large salt fields in the area, such as the springs at Puga. They barter these two products for food grains and other necessities. In Karzok, in recent years, building activity is on the rise with the nomadic tribes changing their life style.
