2 Days Lake Namtso Landscape Group Tour
Namtso, meaning “heavenly lake” in Tibetan, is a large alpine lake on the northern Tibetan Plateau. Snow from Nyenchen Tangula Mountains has melted and supplied the lake for thousands of years. On this scenic tour, you will witness the beauty of the lake as well as explore its lively naturally surroundings. The rich habitat boasts a large number of wildlife. You will also visit the meditation caves on Tashi Dor Island and pass by the unique Yangpachen hot springs on the way. In a word, the 2 Days Namtso Landscape group tour is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the vast grassland of northern Tibet and collect precious memories of the magical land.
Note: this tour is normally only available from April to October. We suggest you take this tour after 3 days in Lhasa and good acclimatization as the overnight stay by the lake is at a high altitude.
