After arriving in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, it is natural to see the potala palace and jokhang temple first. People usually choose Yamdrok Lake, which is just over 100 kilometers away from Lhasa, as the goat Lake.
Yamdrok Lake has been in operation since 2007 and started charging entrance fees in 2008, initially costing 40 yuan. Later, with the development of social economy and the increase of the investment in the construction of the scenic spot, the ticket price was adjusted to 120 yuan per ticket in 2018 after approval, and copies of official documents were posted in the ticket office.
Although July and August are the peak season for visiting Tibet, Tibet cultural tourism group has lowered the ticket price of Yamdrok Lake to 60 yuan per ticket in order to actively respond to and implement the measures of the autonomous region to lower the ticket price to attract tourists. Many friends who want to go to Tibet to play around Lhasa have applauded, ticket prices directly in half, although said the savings is not what big money, but as long as there is a discount, it is always better than no. So what are people waiting for? Seize this opportunity!

Yamdrok Lake occupies a high position in the hearts of tibetans. There is a popular ballad about Yamdrok Lake: the fairyland in heaven, the yangzhuo on earth; Stars in the sky, sheep by the lake. Yamdrok Lake on the ground is like a fairyland in the sky, and the flocks of cattle and sheep are like stars in the sky, which are scattered on the Lake. They are many and bright, dotted with the Yamdrok Lake, which looks like “fireworks without human beings”.
