YAMDROK LAKE

Yamdrok Lake is situated near central city of Tibet and one of the biggest and beautiful lakes which covers 363 square kilometers with a curly shape from one side to the other. We pass by this lake with about 2 hours drive along its bank. Yamadroke means torquise in Tibetan language. In fact, the lake looks exactly as beautiful as torquise blue during the good weather days. Yamdrok Lake is one of the holy or sacred lakes in Tibet along with three other lakes (Manasarovar, Namtso and Lhamo Lhatso) for all Tibetans as its home for wrathful deities and fairies in Tibetan religion. Buddhist Tibetans also do circumambulate the holy lakes in Tibet for washing away their sins and earn infinity merits and to do one circumambulation for Yamdrok.
