Lake Namtso 125m
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.
