The yamdrokyumtso lake in August reflects the deeper sapphire color than the sky. The purity transfer to us via wind, water and life that we never found in city #tibet #tibetancolors #tibetanlakes #nomad #travel #traveling #Himalaya #yamdrok #lake #yamdrokyumtso #canonsg #adventuretravel #scenery

Photo by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto | I'm mesmerized by the emerald waters of high-altitude Tibetan lakes, like this nameless one on route G317 to Lhasa. They're so striking in contrast to the surrounding monochromatic grasslands. These lakes, often made of saltwater, have a mineral content that gives them a green glow. People believe the lakes have spirits and therefore are worshiped by kora, a pilgrimage or circumambulation. The water is not used for anything, no fishing, bathing, boating, or washing—just looked at and admired. And thanks to the lone nomad who happened to be walking by to complete the picture. I wonder where she could be walking in the middle of nowhere. She has a long way to go. #tibet #tibetancolors #tibetanlakes #nomad

Pangong Tso...high altitude lake (14,270 feet)with little oxygen and stunning views of Tibetan mountains. Getting there requires math skills to calculate taking enough gas to get you to the next destination. From Leh, you traverse over Chang La at 17,586 feet. The ride takes roughly 5 hours so plan to spend the night there because your legs will be jello after all those twists and turns without oxygen. . . #pangong #pangongtso #pangonglake #highaltitudelake #ladakh #lehladakh #motorcycle_moment #himalayanlake #himalayanlakes #tibetanlakes #tibetanborder #motorcycletours #cavegirlbiker #whyweride #adventure #destination #travel #travelphotography #bucketlist #explore #adventurer #girlsthatride #beatifulplace #incredibleindia #india #mountains #himalayas #motorcycle #motorcycles #motorcycleofinstagram

Books about the Dalai Lama is banned by the Chinese government in Tibet, even if it’s just a photo of the Dalai Lama in the travel guide book. #tibet #yourshotphotographer #rooftopoftheworld #tibetanprayerflags #tibetanlakes #passionpassport #tibettravel #wjytravels

~ Azules Turquesas ~. 👉🏻 Salimos de Lhasa rumbo a los Himalayas y lejos de ser aquellos viajes en los que uno sólo espera llegar, la verdad, es que el trayecto es tan bonito que deseamos que no terminara nunca. Lagos, rios, montes y un sol hermoso fueron nuestros acompañantes. El momento clave del dia fue al llegar al paso Kampala (4.794 msnm) en donde el lago Yamdrok junto con el monte Nyenchen Khangsar nos regalaron unas vistas y colores que jamás olvidaremos. Puntaje: 🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲. 👉🏻 Saimos de Lhasa para os Himalayas, e longe de ser daquelas viagens em que só se espera chegar, a verdade é que é um roteiro tão bonito que desejávamos que nunca acabe.

Mesmerizing emerald waters of Tibetan high altitude man made lake on the way to Shigatse - Simi Dam. So striking in contrast to monochrome grasslands, this one or other lakes in Tibet, often salt water, have a mineral content that gives them the green glow. People believe the lakes have spirits and therefore are worshiped by doing kora. The water is not used for anything-not fishing, bathing, boating or washing. Just there to be looked at and admired, man made or not!

Never miss out to stop by any of lakes when taking a Tibet tour. Top 10 Tibetan Lakes: Tibet, the plateau with the largest number of alpine lakes on Earth, covers totally 23,800 square kilometers lakes, representing thirty percent of national lake resources. Overall, there are more than one thousand lakes, big or small, three of which exceed one thousand square kilometers, namely Namtso, Siling lake and Zhari Namco. Geographically, lakes in Tibet consist of endorheic lakes and exorheic lakes. The former were formed by continuous crustal movement and were scattered mainly in the north and south of Tibet whereas the latter came into existence as a result of mudslide, volcanic eruption and melted snow or glaciers. To ordinary tourists to Tibet, Lakes are must-see attractions in their tour plan, the top three visited lakes are Namtso Lake,( the biggest lake in Tibet), and Yamdrok Tso Lake( one of the most sacred lakes in Tibet) and Manasarovar Lake ( a holy lake to the southeast of Mt. Kailash), with many more featuring distinct natural scenery. As it is virtually impossible to cover all the lakes in Tibet, 10 major lakes are to be discussed as follows. https://www.tibettravel.org/top-10-lakes/ #Tibet #Tibetanlakes #Lakes #Tibettour #Tibettravel #Lonelyplanet #Tripadvisor #Roughguide

“Pangong Tso”, which means “high grassland lake” in the Tibetan languages, is like an emerald scattered in Ladakh. #PangongTso #Tibetanlanguages #Ladakh #Tibet #Tibetanlakes #Tibetannature #travel #Tibettravel #Photographytour #Naturaltour #Asiatour #Asiatravel
