Lake Namtso, Damxung County

4.8
#1 of 57 in Parks in Tibet
Water Body Nature / Park
Head up to Lake Namtso, a body of water high in the Tibetan mountains, blending a picturesque natural aspect with cultural importance and history. Its name, Tibetan for "Heavenly Lake," makes sense when one considers its altitude and its appearance. At 4,718 m (15,479 ft) above sea level, the lake stands as the highest saltwater lake in the world, while snow-capped mountains and vast grasslands surround the clear blue water in a dramatic natural scene. A long-standing place of pilgrimage, the lake supports a community of pastoral nomads who live in the grasslands around it, along with their colorfully dressed yaks. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Damxung County holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lake Namtso and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
