The lake is 3,705 meters above the sea level. It is one of the biggest lakes in Diqing Prefecture. The lake is famous for its clear water and peaceful environment of the area around here.
Every spring and summer, herds of yak and goat grazing beside the lake and the shepherd’s shelters dot on the grassland everywhere. People can hear the sound of flute comes from afar. Staying beside the lake, you can deeply feel the quietness and leisurely life of plateau people.
