Namtso Lake Pictures

The crystal-clear blue Namtso Lake looks like a holy and beautiful fairy standing on earth quietly where five islets are scattered in and they are said to be the incarnations of five Buddhas.

Namtso, the Heaven Lake in Tibet, is the second largest saltwater lake with the highest altitude in China. It relies for its water on the magnificent Nyaiqentanglha Mountain to the southeast. Once opened to public, this place has proved to be a veritable paradise for tourists. The pure and charming Namtso also boasts many wild animals and wildfowl. Attraction Intro: Namtso Lake
