1 Day Yamdrok Lake Tour

Duration: 1 Days

Max Altitude: 4441m

Tour Pace: Comfortable

Departure Date: All year except in March

Highlights: Yamdrok Lake

Itinerary Details Includes & Excludes Tour FAQs
Yamdrok in Tibetan means the Pool of Swan, one of top four holy lakes (Namtso Lake, Yamdrok Lake, Lake Manasarovar and Qinghai Lake) in Tibetan region. The whole lake is a heavenly lake indeed because of its location roughly on the top of mountain ranges(an altitude over 4500 meters above sea level), and the whole shape of the lake is quite long and narrow, and seems like the intestines of sheep.

Day1 Lhasa/Yamdrok Lake[4441m]/Lhasa 140km, 3-4hrs

Drive to Yamdrok Lake from Lhasa in the morning. You will enjoy the spectacular scenery. Yamdrok Lake is a coiling, many-armed body of water shaped like a scorpion. It doubles back on itself on the western side, effectively creating a large island within its reaches. For Tibetans, it is one of the four holy lakes of Tibet. And the home of wrathful deities. The lake lies several hundred meters below the road, and in clear weather is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Far in the distance is the huge massif of Mt. Nojin Kangtsang (7191m).
