Know More about this tour

Yamdrok Lake
, also called Yamdrok Yumtso, is a lake with two long arms of water, making it look like a scorpion from the sky. This shape means you can never see its shape from around it. From Gyantse, you can see one arm, and follow it until it disappears around a bend in the shore which makes it difficult to estimate the size of the lake.

Yamdrok Lake is one of Tibet's three sacred lakes and the largest lake in southern Tibet. The other two famous and holy lakes are Namtso Lake and Lake Manasarovar. The lake is fan shaped and features numerous bays and inlets and nine islands. The lake has a number of different names. It is called Coral Lake, or Green Jade Lake. The lake received the name Coral Lake, because it is shaped like a piece of coral, and the name Green Jade lake comes from it calm surface and beautiful green color.

Your Tibetan tour guide can take you to the lake side and enjoy your peaceful and quiet time beside the lake. You may walk half to 2 hours beside the lake if group tour time permitting. There could be restaurant service beside the lake (but it depends on season), cheap Tibetan noodle ranges from 1 USD to 2 USD per bowel, however expensive food in restaurant could be US$15-20 per person. Travelers can prepare some lunch pack or snack 1 day before joining the tour.
