Lake Yamdrok of Tibet

Lake Yamdrok was our first stop during my tour to Gyangtse, a freshwater lake that is also known as one of three sacred lakes in Tibet. Never in my life had I seen water as blue as the sky. It almost didn’t seem real because the scenery was so striking. Just gazing at the lake reminded me how incredibly wonderful nature is.
