Ti­bet

Both Bud­dhists and Hin­dus be­lieve that bathing in or drink­ing from the lake — also called Jewel of Ti­bet be­cause of its sap­phire wa­ters — cleanses one of sins and brings good for­tune. Some pil­grims cir­cum­am­bu­late the equally revered Mount Kailash that flanks the lake for sim­i­lar rea­sons.
