Its name is characteristic of its situation - nestled in the midst of 20,000 foot plus peaks, which completely shut the lake in. Legend has it that a woman riding a yak was carried into the lake. At first the yak swam boldly out and the woman (chomo) was delighted. But after a while the animal grew tired and sank deeper in the water. The chomo became frightened and screamed "Ri Ri, Ri Ri" until the yak sank and she drowned. Since then, the lake has been called Chomo-riri. A kilometer ahead is the picturesque village of Korzok consisting of about a hundred families. Visit the gompa set on top of the village.
