Welcome to Tibet - a region difficult to travel to, known for magnificent nature and an ancient culture, located in southwest China, on the Tibetan plateau, the highest on the earth.

Traditionally known as Tibet, the region has recently been referred to as Xizang. 

There are several beautiful lakes around Lhasa and one of them is high-altitude Yamdrok Yumtso Lake. Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is located at an altitude of 4,488 metres. It is one of the four most sacred lakes in Tibet, another place where pilgrims come to do a kora. Tibetans believe the lake to be a talisman of their land. Legend has it that when the lake dries up, Tibet will become uninhabited.
