Overview

Namtso Lake, placed in the northwest of Lhasa is the very best saltwater lake in the world with an altitude of 4718 meters. As the 2d greatest saltwater lake in China (next to Qinghai Lake), it covers a place of 1,920 rectangular kilometers, with 70 kilometers in size from east to west and 30 kilometers in width from south to north. In Tibetan, Namtso potential Heavenly Lake, so it is additionally viewed as one of the three holy lakes in Tibet, collectively with Yamdrok Lake and Lake Manasarovar. Consisting of over 1500 lakes and 5 large islands, which used to be the religious retreat, Namtso is the paradise of nature and an awesome vicinity for image taking, in particular in the summertime time. The Tashi Peninsula, the largest island right here stretches lengthy and wreathed Namtso into its center, imparting vacationers a land for nonsecular refreshment and trekking around. Because of its vicinity excessive in the mountains, some humans name Namtso a “sky lake” or a “Heavenly Lake”.
Surrounding snow-peaked Nyechen Tanglha mountains are regularly included in snow even at some stage in the summertime months.
