3. The Heavenly Lake Namtso                                              

We went northward along the National Highway 109, through Yangbajing, Damxung and etc, to go to the world-class tourist attraction Namtso. A long section of the National Highway 109 is along the Nyainqentanglha Mountain Range. Nyainqentanglha Mountain peaks stretching to the northeast. The main Nyainqentanglha peak, 7111 meters high, can be seen from distance. The relative height between these peaks and the highway is only 2000 to 3000 meters therefore they do not look very high. Along the way, you can see the railway line runs parallel to the highway. After leaving the State Road 109 and the Namtso Lake is still faraway, the entrance ticket should be bought here, 85 Yuan per one; no free of charge or discount for disabled or student. The auto began to climb Nyainqêntanglha slowly; there was vegetation, flocks and herds on the slopes, and rivers, snow caped peaks could be seen. There were local people on the hillside collecting mushroom and Cordyceps, Usually they would be in the mountain for a few days before returning and would park they motorcycles on the road side. In winter, Namtso will be closed due to the ice road and iced lake, driving is unsafe at that time. After getting to the Pass Lakenla, 5190 meters high above sea level, the beautiful lake Namtso came into our field of vision. Here, you can take photos but never point the lens at the Tibetans and their yaks, otherwise you can never leave without paying few hundred or thousand Yuan, and no one can help you. If you do not want to pay, then just waiting for being beaten and the auto being smashed. There are still tens of kilometers from the Lakenla Pass to Tashi Peninsula of Namtso. There are Tibetan tent hotels for tourists on Tashi Peninsula. There are about over 300 meters from tent hotels to the lakeside. There are yaks and horses lead by the local people carry tourists to the shore, about 20 Yuan for single-way, but it is suggested to go to the lake on foot, because some one will charge you much more after you get there, and you can not leave without paying the sum he asked. You can take photo riding on a yak, 5 Yuan each time, or 10 Yuan each time if the yak is standing in water. Some one will bar the way of those who do not take photos riding on their yaks or camels, it is annoying. There are lots of local kids there and they will ask tourists for something, it is suggested to bring some pencils, candies and the like for them. In Tibet, at least one Yuan should be paid to go to an ordinary toilet, and the Eco-Toilet at Namtso is 2 Yuan for each.

I remember that when I just entered in the junior high school the unprepossessing mark of Namtso on a map in my Geography textbook caught my attention and I did not expect that one day I would be personally on the scene and embrace her. Gazing at the clear vast expanse of blue water of Namtso joining the sky at the foot of Mt. Nyainqentanglha, my whole soul seemed to be baptized by the pure water and blue sky. Standing beside the lake, I felt being in a blue world; the deep and spacious blue sky overhead is well integrated with the pure water. The highest and most beautiful sacred lake in the world is shocking; people seemed to be immersed in a fairyland. Under the blue sky and white cloud,dotted with pearl-like cattle and sheep, like a huge green carpet, the grassland beside the lake is boundless. The world's highest lake, faraway from the pollution of modern civilization,takes the white snowy Peaks for crown and the green grass for skirt, like a holy nymph, sacred, noble and pure; no one on the scene will not feel being enlightened, refreshed, carefree and joyous; and no one on the scene will not grateful to the Creator’s superb craftsmanship. You can never grasp the beauty of Namtso if you are not on the scene; its beauty has a power of convincing. In front of her, all languages and all the modern photographic equipments are seemed so pale and feeble. Language invented for the world can not be used for describing the holy ones.  

Namtso is the largest inland lake in Tibet and the highest saltwater lake in the world; it is called Tengri Sea or Tengri Lake in Mongolian. Namtso in Tibetan means “heavenly lake”; located to the north of Lhasa and Nyainqentanglha Mountains, between Damxung County and Bangor County, 240 kilometers from Lhasa. 70 kilometers long from east to west and 30 kilometers wide from north to south, and occupies 1940 square kilometers, with an elevation of 4,718 meters, the lake Namtso is the largest saltwater lake in Tibet, the second largest saltwater lake in China and the highest big lake in the world. Lake’s forming and developing is controlled by geological structure, Namtso was formed by the sinking which caused by the movement of Himalayan orogeny in tertiary period; it is a faulted structure lake with traces of glaciation. The water body of the lake is continuously shrinking. Today, there are several ancient lake shorelines around the lake; the highest one is about 80 meters from the lake surface. The snowy Nyainqêntanglha is to the south, highland hills are to the north and west. The vast pasture around the lake is lush. The water contents high salt and the basin is rich in wildlife resources like gaurs and Goats, etc. There are many wild fowls on the lake and Brachymystax lenok and alepidote in. the clean water, and the surrounding snow-capped mountains reflect each other's beauty. How beautiful the scenery is! It is said that this lake is like the blue sky down to the ground, so it is called "the Heavenly Lake"; but there is another saying: because of the high altitude of the lake, it seemed high above in the sky, hence it is called "the Heavenly Lake". Namtso is a sacred lake, so maybe for this reason or perhaps for protecting the environment, not a single boat can be seen on the lake.

Damxung County is a county based on livestock; the so-called county town is a place where only several houses built along State Road 109. Backing from Namtso and just finished luncheon in Damxung, I saw a Tibetan girl about three years old or so climbed on board to our bus for begging. Her mother is young with a sucking child in her arms. We handed her mother a big bag of ham sausages which was about two kilograms. The small girl turned round and hurried to take it, and she was strong enough to take the bag. She carried the bag to a place nearby and opened to eat at once, and the sucking baby stretched out her hand to grasp, too; maybe the children were too hungry. From time to time, lonely Tibetan woman could be seen standing in the sun light with strong ultraviolet radiation of the highland by the roadside in the middle of nowhere; whenever any autos howl down the road dragging dust behind them, she would reach out a hand with something like a hat in it, no body know if they were selling something or begging, but not a single driver would pay attention to them. I thought they would get nothing at last. This scene makes one feel life is not easy.
