There are many lakes in Tibet. In this vast land, there are 1,500 lakes, large and small. They are like pearls falling from the plateau, clear and clear. Among these lakes, Namco has been highly regarded as one of the three holy lakes.
Namco is located in the middle of the Tibet Autonomous Region, on the southeastern border of the Nagqu area and on the northwestern border of Lhasa. About three-fifths of the lakes are in Bangor County in the Nagqu area, and two-fifths of the lakes are in Dangxiong County of Lhasa.

First met Namco

The Nam Co is called the Tengger Sea, and the Tibetan-Mongolian language means “Tianhu”. It is the second largest lake in Tibet (until in recent years, it has been increased by the number of color forests that have been increasing year by year) and is also the highest salt lake in the world. The lake was selected as the third of the “Best Lakes in China” by China National Geographic’s “Beauty of China” campaign.


Why is Namco free to enter only half of the year? In the winter (before the end of October, before May of May), Namco will not artificially “close the mountain”, but sometimes there will be a situation where heavy snow roads are not accessible. At this time, you can only take chances to go, unlike from May to October. The beautiful Tianhu is ready to enter.


The waters of Nam Co Lake were replenished by the melting of the snow of the Nyainqentanglha Mountain. In May, the ice on the lake began to melt. The loud sounds that made it were amazing.

Swim in Nam Co


At the Nagana Mountain Pass, look around, under the blue sky and white clouds, and lie in a sapphire-like water, that is Namco.

The wide lake, the microwave, the sun-splitting lightsaber through the clouds pierce the blue-green intersecting lake, where the lake reflects the mottled halo.

In the distance, the main peak of the Nyainqentanglha Mountain, such as a mighty warrior, guards Nam Co. The kenaf duck swims on the lake, and the red-billed gull, which is in groups of three, screams and flies.

The lake is clear and transparent, the stones at the bottom of the lake are clearly visible, and the fine waves and sandstones are lingering.


Standing on the edge of the lake, watching the clouds, watching the water, you can think of the poems of “walking to the water, sitting and watching the clouds.” The eternal vicissitudes of life, the world is like a cloud of clouds, and this glory of blue seems to have been here, has existed for hundreds of millions of years. It is the constant in change, the eternal in the passing.

The clouds in Tibet are full of gestures. They are either hanging in the air in a beautiful posture, or floating in the clouds, hanging on the top of the snow-capped mountains, or at the moment, like the clouds over Namco, the strips are radial, like white practice. .

Namco’s water, a large piece of blue, a white line across it. The shadows cast by the clouds in the water overlap.

Xu Zhimo’s “Occasional” includes: “I am a cloud in the sky, occasionally projected on your heart.” And the cloud over Namco is a gentle and long time projection, singing a long time with the water of Nam Co. Love. The cloud is the cloud in the water; the water is the water in the sky. You can’t tell where it is water and where it is.


Those who have been to Namco, the whole soul seems to be washed by pure lake water. You seem to be in a blue world. Light blue, light blue, gray blue, royal blue, dark blue and dark blue like black ink, which is light and deep blue, blue is clear, blue is rich, blue is charming, seems to contain all the blue in the world .


In the evening of Nam Co, the clouds on the lake gathered together, and the sky was dark and dark, only the narrow side of the sky was bright. The afterglow of the sun reflects the clouds near the mountains, and the color of the blush on the edge of the cloud changes from shallow to deep, slowly burning up and igniting the lake on the west side. Five minutes later, the flame slowly extinguished, and there was still light white light on the horizon of the setting sun. The sky at the top of the lake seemed to burn out, leaving only the blue ash.

Deep night. It seems that the world is flooded, but Yu Yu. Watching the stars on the Tashi Peninsula, the stars of the sky are clear and bright, like diamonds shining alone. You can see the colorful Milky Way, the beautiful nebula. The universe is vast, and the thoughts are boundless. You seem to be the only one in this world.

In the morning, the sky is dark blue, the stars are still there, and the clouds are gathering near the mountains. Then the sky slowly lit up, and the top of the foothills began to appear pale yellow, and the clouds gradually became loose. From the horizon to the sun outcrop, the clouds gather together to form a long piece, rendered into a brilliant orange-red. When the sun just emerged, it scatters the golden color of the eye.

The thin fog on the pale blue lake has not yet dispersed. The people who turned to the lake have already faced the first sun and walked around the western peninsula.
