Lake Manasarovar

Lhasa, Tibet

Lake Manasarovar, Mapaham Yum Tso in Tibetan, is Tibet’s most sacred lake. It is found in far western Tibet near Mount Kailash at an elevation of 4590 meters. It is one of the highest freshwater lakes on the planet. The lake lies near the border of Nepal and offers a sweeping view of the Himalaya to the south. The mighty peak of Gurla Mandhata, elevation 7694 meters, can be seen rising above the lakeshore. Most people going to Manasarovar also do the 3 day trek around nearby Mount Kailash.
