Yamdrok Yumtso Lake, Nagarze County
(4.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Encircled by snow-capped mountains and dotted with small islands, Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of the three largest sacred lakes in Tibet, believed to be the transformation of a goddess. The lake and its surroundings bears a historical significance relating to the second incarnation of Buddha, who brought Buddhism to Tibet. Hike the green hills and watch how the color of the water changes from turquoise and sapphire to jade-green, depending on the sunlight. You may occasionally run into herds of goats and yaks, guarded by Tibetan mastiffs, as well as praying pilgrims. One of the islands houses the only monastery in Tibet headed by a woman--a female re-incarnation of Buddha. Use our Nagarze County tourist route planner to add Yamdrok Yumtso Lake and other attractions to your Nagarze County vacation plans.

  • 羊湖是西藏山南地區的一座大湖泊, 與納木措和瑪旁雍措並稱為西藏三大聖湖。 湖面海拔4441公尺,面積678平方公里 羊卓雍措的藏語語意是「天鵝池」,也被稱為羊卓雍湖 「措」在藏語裡就是「湖」的意思,簡稱為羊湖。 靜謐安詳 令人神清氣爽 
  • A very beautiful lake. The drive there from Lhasa over the Kambala Pass is equally memorable. The very top of the pass has incredible views of the lake. 
  • On the way to Lhasa from Shigatse yamdrok Lake! It is a beautiful Lake depending on how the light shining and glistening jade-like color. The contrast of Brown mountains around were impressive. The photo spot yak or cost money when taking a photo, and the Tibetan mastiff.
