Yamdroktso Lake

On the old road between Gyantse (4040m) and Lhasa, the dazzling Yamdroktso (4441m) can be seen from the summit of the Kamba-la pass (5030m ). In clear weather, the lake is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Leaving Yamdroktso is as spectacular as arriving, since you have to cross the 5045m Karola, with its awesome roadside views of the Nojin Kangtsang Glacier.

 

 

As one of the three holy lakes, the Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is said to be the female Guardian of Buddhism in Tibet. People here believe that it will bless and protect them. Every year, many devotional followers in Tibet or from other places would come here for pilgrimage. Some of them start on foot and give one prostration every three steps even from hundreds of kilometers away. All of these Tibet travellers bring much mystery and dignity to the charming holy Yamdrok Yumtso Lake.
