Serling Tso Lake: The largest lake in Tibet

Located in the Tibet Autonomous Region, China, the Serling Tso Lake is the largest lake on the plateau. Over a decade ago, the famous Namtso Lake was bigger than it. Due to the increased glacial meltwater, rainfall and reduced evaporation, the Serling Lake eventually surpassed the Namtso Lake and has become the biggest lake in Tibet and the second-biggest saltwater lake in China.
