At an altitude of 4441 meters, Yamdrotso Lake is one of the three holy lakes of Tibet, located at the Nangartse County of Shannan Prefecture, some 110 km to the southwest of Lhasa, Tibet. Yamdrotso Lake is 130km long from east to west and 70km broad from north to south, and covers an area of 678 square kilometers with an average depth of 20 to 40 meters. It is usually first seen at Kumba La pass (4700m), with massive massif of Mt Nojin Kangtsang (7191m) in the background.
Of the three holy lakes in Tibet (the other two are Namtso Lake & Manasarovar Lake), Yamdrotso Lake is of the easiest access which lies on the roadside between Lhasa and Gyantse. If you only have a few days in Tibet, Yamdrotso Lake would be an ideal excursion outside Lhasa city.
