Namtso or Lake Nam China

Namtso or Lake Nam means “holy lake” in Tibetan language, it’s a mountain lake located on the border between Damxung County (Lhasa) and #Baigoin County (Nagqu) in China. It is a salt lake that birthed from Himalayan tectonic plate movements in Paleogene age. The lake’s water comes from rain, melted ice and snow of NyenchenTonglha mountains and gives a rich blue color on the surface that makes sky and lake one, thus making entire region mystical.
