    Yamdrok Lake is one of the three largest sacred lakes in Tibet . It is over 72 km (45 miles) long. The lake is surrounded by many snow-capped mountains and is fed by numerous small streams. The lake does have an outlet stream at its far western end.

    Dazzling Yamdrok Lake is noamally first seen from the summit of the Kamba-la,The lake lies several hundred metres below the road,and in clear weather is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise.Far in the distance is the huge massif of Mt Nojin Kangtsang.

     Yamdrok Lake is shaped like a coiling scorpion.It doubles back on itself on the western side,eefectively creating a largr island within its reaches.For Tibetans,it is one ofthe four holy lakes and home to wrathful deities.Devout Tibetan pilgrims circumambulate the lake in around seven days.

Most Western travellers are content with a glimpse of the lake from the Kamba-la and views from the twon of Nangartse, where you can stay the night.
