Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of the four holy lakes and has stunning views to offer. The scenery with snow capped mountains and the low always changing clouds made this place very beautiful.

Sweeping vistas of snow peaked mountains contrasted against a vivid blue sky and turquoise waters, yaks, giant mastiffs, and Tibetan people in their traditional costumes.
