Namtso Lake Trekking - Tibet Namtso lake trekking tour - Lhasa Namtso Lake trek

Namtso Lake Trekking                        Nam-tso lake is the highest lake in Tibet and the magnificent pool perfectly embodies its place near the heavens. Its waters beautifully mirror the color of the sky, deepening from a pure, clear turquoise during the day to a sapphire bleu at dusk. Reached by crossing the Largen-la pass, this, the second largest salt lake in China , rests on the green and brown plains of Tibet , amid the guarding peaks of the Nyenchen Tanglha Mountains. Here, where the influence of man and his machines is diminished to the drone of a jeep engine, the waves and placidity of Nam-tso revel in their holiness. Due to its juxtaposition with mountains and plains, Nam-tso is visually inspiring at any time of the day. The natural changes in light can alone shift the shades of the magical colors of earth and water from pink, to brown, to purple.
