In addition to the world-renowned altitude of the qinghai-tibet plateau, there is another name that ordinary people do not know: China water tower. This is evident from the origins of Asia’s major rivers. As the most important part of the qinghai-tibet plateau, Tibet has numerous lakes, including the three most famous sacred lakes in Tibetan areas: Lake Manasarovar, Nam Lake and YangZhuoYong Lake. In addition, there are Siling Co, dang ya yong tco, ren qing shu bu tso, ban gong tso, zhari nan mu tso, la oncuo, Ranwu Lake, basong cuo, ramla tso and so on.
When it comes to lakes in Tibet, you can’t get around Nam Lake. The most famous sacred lake in Tibet not only has a high status, but also boasts the most beautiful scenery in the world. And most important of all is its very accessible roads and the natural scenery that abounds along the way.
Many people say that if you go to Tibet for the first time, you’d better go to Nam Lake rather than the potala palace, just for the incomparable blue color.
One of the other three sacred lakes, along with Nam Lake. Beautiful in its vastness, the sense of boundless space can be damned even by restlessness.
YangZhuoYong Lake is another experience, one of the most beautiful colors you can imagine in the world. Dark blue, blue, light blue, milk blue, sky blue, dark green, grass green, it is hard to imagine a lake can only gather so many colors.
Lake Manasarovar, located in ali region, is the first of the three holy lakes in Tibet and has been designated as the center of the world along with its eternal companion, Kangrinboqe.
If you simply assume that Lake Manasarovar, the first of the three holy lakes, is only affected by nearby Kangrinboqe, then you are wrong. Because of the long distance, few tourists arrive, so its unique beauty is little known, but not as often exposed in the circle of friends as Nam Lake. This is the most transparent freshwater lake in China.
The fame of Ranwu Lake is nothing compared with the first two. It is not a famous holy Lake, nor is there much related legend.
However, these can’t hide its beautiful appearance and the most beautiful lake on the sichuan-tibet line that can be reached by car. Especially every year in November to may, the lake transparent, surrounded by snow-capped mountains towering clouds, like a fairyland.
As the largest lake in Tibet, Siling Co is also called devil hu. Legend lake lived a devil, resulting in the lake waves often very scary, presumably this should be attached to a legend.
But since it is the largest lake in Tibet, it certainly has incomparable natural scenery. It is a kind of vast as the sea, magnificent indescribable beauty. Standing on the shore, listen to the wind treading waves overlooking towering snow mountains.
Lakes are the focus of tourism in Tibet, which can also be said to be the typical representative of the whole Tibetan landscape, including the vast desolation of Tibet, and the pure and primitive Tibet.
Because of this, ali line, which has the most abundant lake resources in Tibet, can be called Tibet of Tibet.
See the road
Many people do not go to Tibet for the sacred mountains and lakes, or even for the holy city of Lhasa, just to experience the most beautiful scenery in the world, the highest altitude, the legendary highway into Tibet. Each road, for travelers, is their own pilgrimage road, so the road has become an indispensable part of Tibet.
Sichuan – tibet Highway
The road itself is one of the longest and largest scenic spots in the world. From chengdu to Lhasa, each of the more than 2,000 kilometers of road has different and world-beating landscapes.
Crossing the world’s largest altitude drop, 15 mountains with an altitude of more than 4,000; Lying across almost all of Asia’s great rivers, only the final holy land of Lhasa.
Qinghai – tibet highway
This area of less than 2,000 kilometers is the most important of all Tibetan highways and carries more than half of this amount.
Presumably, the truck drivers who rush about here all the year round are infatuated with the beauty of this heavenly road, or drunk on the purest wild driving experience.
The relatively small road has been through many trials and tribulations, running intermittently for much of the year. Winter avalanche, summer mudslide collapse, the earth a little unhappy will let the people walking on this road to suffer.
Even today the Bingchacha Highway is still one of the most difficult and dangerous highways to enter Tibet.
Xinjiang – tibet Highway
Known as the day road, the reason is of course altitude is really high, high to even once the Everest base camp in front of it is not what.
However, it is also the loneliest and most cloudy road to Tibet. There is a sense of indulgence in taking the peek at Tibet Highway.
