The Namtso is a mountain lake running on the border between the Baingoin County of Nagqu Prefecture in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and Damxung County of Lhasa prefecture-level city. The lake is 112 kilometers from Lhasa.

 

The Namtso Lake is well reckoned among the most beautiful and spectacular places on the mountain range of Nyainqentanglha. For centuries, the Tibetan pilgrims are visiting the place because of the cave hermitages. Easy access from Lhasa was established after as surface road across Laken Pass at 5186 m was developed in the year 2005. Therefore, the water body became a tourist destination as well. Another attraction that draws people to the lake is The Tashi Dor monastery situated on the southeastern corner of the lake.
