Namtso means “Sky Lake” in Tibetan, and which is one of the three holy lakes. The altitude of the lake is 4,718 meters. It has an area of 1920 kilometers square. It is not only the biggest lake in Tibet and the second lagoon in China, but also the highest elevation lake in the world.


The soul of people who comes to Namtso may be absterged by the water.
You may feel just like stay in a blue world, the light blue, baby blue, livid, sapphire blue, dark blue and black blue, all are so clear and beautiful.

Makes you shocked but peace.

At dusk, we felt hard to walk because of altitude reaction, but when we sat on the mountain and saw the sunset. We felt the Namtso just like a beautiful ink painting.

We arranged 2 days tour to Namtso for the sunrise and sunset. And we couldn’t use word to describe the beauty.

We took a coach from an agent in the afternoon. The scenery was beautiful on the way.
