Lake Namtso 125m

Asian Geographic - - Front Page -


Pil­grims walk around the lake, which is sig­nif­i­cant in Bon and Ti­betan Bud­dhism, to cleanse them­selves of sins and ac­crue bless­ings. It is be­lieved that the year of the goat is the best time to do this. In Ti­betan, Lake Namtso means ‘heaven lake’. One of the three holi­est lakes in Ti­bet, it is also the high­est salt­wa­ter lake in the world.
