Excursion to the Namtso lake

Category: Martin @ 02:24

250 km from Lhasa is the highest saltwater lake in the world, the Namtso lake. To go there we hired a minibus and drove down the valley to Damxung, along the railway line.

After Damxung we had to cross a pass (shown above) of 5150m. Popping a painkiller and two Gaoyuanan ("High Plateau Peace") pills before the peak.....and no problem at all.

Untouched nature at an altitude of 4718m.

Ok, that was a lie...hordes of tourists line up to ride on yaks, including this shady person here.
