Yamdrok Lake


Surrounded by snowcapped mountains, Yamdrok Lake is fed by fresh now melts that run down the mountains each spring. At certain points of the year, the lake takes on a spectacular turquoise color, but no matter the time of year you reach the lake, the views will be excellent.


According to legend, the lake is the transformation of a goddess. Yamdrok Lake is one of several holy lakes in the Tibetan region of China.
