Shudu Lake, Shangri-La County

(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Have a picnic among the yaks and goats to experience the peaceful village life at Shudu Lake. Although the plateau lake rises 3,705 m (12,156 ft) above sea level, its maximum depth reaches only a relatively shallow 10 m (33 ft). Thanks to this and the clear water, you can see a unique species of golden carp with a distinct cross-body line swimming in the lake, whose name means cheese (Shu) and stone (du). Located in a national park, thick forests and pastures surround the lake. You can get active around the lake by going fishing or horseback riding. Use our Shangri-La County vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Shudu Lake and other attractions in Shangri-La County.

  • 普達措的三個景區中我覺得屬都湖最美。我是秋天季節到達屬都湖,入口不遠處之高山搭配變黃的樹葉,小橋加上湖面構成非常漂亮的景色。強烈建議來屬都湖一定要走路,否則就失去了觀賞美景的機會。全長雖然有3點多公里,但走起來一點都不辛苦,因為景色實在太美了,不知不覺中就已經走完此路程。  more »
  • And next to the promenade, Lakeside walk over time forward. Squirrels, birds are found. Had the better of the first boat, get on with it and can be a lot of shortcuts. Followed by a similar sight.
