The poor condition was firstly for the road going to the lake. As far as I know government was currently constructing a new road to the lake. So meanwhile they're building it, the tourist must take another--unpaved--road which was no asphalt, very bumpy, turning and...More
If you are not from a third world country, be sure to avoid this excursion. Firstly, anywhere else in the world, the road would be closed. The path up to the lake took us 6.5 hours; we had to navigate all of the construction trucks...More

This is a beautiful, mildly salty & sacred lake about a 5 hour drive from Lhasa depending on traffic. It is the largest lake in Tibet approximately 70km by 30 km at an altitude of 15,551 feet. The road there climbs thru a canyon to...More
Namtso is worth a visit, especially in summer. It is a good place to avoid humidity and the heat wave. The sky is clear, the Tibetan Plateau stretches, and the lake is jewelry blue that is...More
