Manla Reservoir: A piece of jade to reflect the sky in Tibet

Manla Reservoir, known as the First Dam of Tibet, is an artificial lake situated in Longma Township, Gyangze County of Shigatse in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. It's known for its translucent green water, and on sunny days, the water, reflecting the sky above, forms a spectacular sight for visitors.
