Introduction to Mugetso Lake (木格措或野人海)

Mugetso Lake actually refers to the Mugetso Scenic Spot in Yala Township, Kangding County, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province, including the Mugetso Lake itself. This scenic spot is located deeply among the magnificent Gongga Mountains, having great natural base for its gorgeous landscapes. There are towering snow mountains, numerous glittering alpine lakes and fairy hot springs, verdant meadows, peculiar rocks and cliffs, and lush primitive forests in this scenic spot, making Mugetso Scenic Spot an ideal destination for sightseeing, entertainment, leisure, summer resort as well as science expedition.

Mugetso Lake is also called Yeren Lake. It has an altitude of 3,700 meters and is one of the highest alpine lakes in western Sichuan. Surrounded by the high mountains, dense forests, and luxuriant meadows, and many lakes of different sizes, the Mugetso Lake is like a crystal pearl lying in the middle, shining with colorful views. Its foggy mornings, glittering afternoons and dazzling dawns have made the lake a charming place to travel to.

Spring is the best time to enjoy a mountain of romantic and bright azaleas at Mugetso, while summer is for a pleasant tour to avoid from the summer heat. Autumn is the time to enjoy the colorful world of red and golden leaves, while winter is for a pure snow world at this area. The Mugetso never bores you in the four seasons with its rich highlighted sites.
