The best time to visit Namtso Lake is summer, thus it is time fortravelers to prepare for Namtso tour in 2013.Endowed with pure water and stunning landscapes, the Namtso Lake attractsthousands of visitors each year. Over 90% of tourists to Tibet would make atour to Namtso Lake according to the survey of Tibet Tourism Bureau.Suited at an elevation of 4,718 meters, the turquoise Namtso Lake is like abright pearl on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Covering an area of 1,940 squarekilometers, Namtso Lake ranks the second largest saltwater lake of its kind inChina after Qinghai Lake. It is also one of the three most famous holy lakes inTibet and the highest altitude saltwater lake in the world.As the water in Namtso Lake is crystal-clear blue. It is difficult to distinguish theboundary between the lake and the sky. Clear skies join the surface of the lakein the distance, creating an integrated, scenic vista. Soul of every visitor whohas ever been here seems to be cleansed by the pure lake water.During summer, wild yaks, blue sheep, Mongolian wild asses, foxes, blackbears, water deer, marmot, hares and other wild animals leisurely look for foodalong the expansive lake shores; countless migratory birds fly here to lay eggsand raise their squabs; sometimes lovely fishes in the lake jump out of water toenjoy the warmth of the sunshine; sheep and cows herds are like flowing whiteblanks on the green grassland which can stretch as far as your eyes can see;the dulcet songs of Gauchos resound through the valleys. In a word, theNamtso Lake is full of life, vigor and vitality.The sunrise and sunset, and the night sky at the Namtso Lake are extremelyamazing. It is best to stay at least one night at the Namtso Lake to enjoydifferent sights there in a day. Trek around the lake in early morning or in theevening is considered as the highlight of a Namtso tour. But it is best toprepare some warm clothes and bring enough water. It is easy to get altitudesickness and get cold as the Namtso Lake is 1,100m higher than Lhasa city.The Namtso Lake is located at northwest of Lhasa, about 200 km from there,but there are no direct buses to the Namtso Lake. Tourists can hire a taxi or amini bus from Lhasa to the Namtso Lake.
