One Day Yamdrok Lake Excursion




1 day


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 a number of switchbacks and surmount the pass with heaps of prayer flags flapping in the breeze.
From the ridge, it offers a stunning view of the sprawling Yamdrok Lake down in the valley and snowcapped mountains on 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 lakes 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 great value among Tibetans and Tibetans offer prayer flags and make a pilgrimage to the lake.
