4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • It is of course a bit and it takes a full day from Lhasa to visit. There are also very good weather conditions. The ideal is to have snow on the peaks and not on the road. The pass to access exceeds the 5000 m and a fall of snow in the night will be enough to close the collar to traffic for the following morning. There are also sunset to get the pure blue color of this Lake. If all these conditions are met, you have a grandiose nature show! Note that this lake is sacred to Tibetans, and you may have a few people you support for photo shooting.

  • 4月初到訪,湖面仍然冰封。湖水是看不到了,不過也別有一番風味!我和朋友在湖面上跑跑跳跳,也十分開心! 晚上零下不知幾度,本來打算去拍下銀河,但實在凍到疆,加上四周狗吠,拍了幾張相就快快回去屋子… 另外印象最深刻的是營地中央的公廁…屎堆到金字塔一樣…叫人望而生畏 /\ 更讓你受不了的是那窒息臭味… 
  • 报的一日游,从拉萨市区出发,早上天没亮就集中出发了,很远但绝对值得!快到的时候经过雪山,雪山就已经很美了,从雪山那远眺纳木错以为运气不好是阴天,没想到一下去很晴朗,西藏就是这样,隔个几里路天气就完全不一样。纳木错的水很清很清,没有杂质,超级美,具体看图啦,没法形容,但是不要太过兴奋而大喊大叫或走快啥的,会高反。。。我当时不过走快了两步就喘不过气了。。。
