Summer scenery at Yamzhog Yumco Lake

One of the three sacred lakes in Tibet, the Yamzhog Yumco Lake is a landslide dam in Lhoka. The lake's shape looks like a coral; hence it was named "coral lake" by the local people. During summer, most of the snow-capped mountains take off their white hats, and the clean blue sky is reflected in the water. With dotted flowers, the Yamzhog Yumco Lake looks quiet and peaceful.
