One day Yamdrok lake excursion;
LHASA – GAMPA LA PASS(4750m) – YAMDROK LAKE(4300m) – LHASA, 240km round way, 5 hours drive.
We extend the way to the west by driving over the friendship highway, cross the lofty Gampa la pass(4750m) through numbers of switch backs and surmount the pass with heaps of prayer flags flapping in the breeze. From ridge, it offers a stunning view of the sprawling Yamdrok lake down in the valley and snowcapped mountains in the horizon. Winding down from the pass toward the lake shore of Yamdrok lake and continues enjoy the unforgettable vista of its pincer-shaped expanse of turquoise water. Yamdrok lake is one of the holiest lake in Tibet. It is revered as a talisman, supporting the life-spirit of the Tibetan nation. It is said that should its water dry Tibet will no longer be habitable. It holds a great value among Tibetans and Tibetans offer prayer flags and makes pilgrimage to the lake.
