Lake Manasarova

Lake Manasarova sits 4,500 meters above sea level in Purang county, Ngari prefecture. Snow melt from the Gangdise Mountains hugging the lake is the source for the nearby Yarlung Zangbo River as well as the mighty Ganges.

The Manasarova wetland is a key "climate regulator" on the plateau and home to more than 400 rare species including the black-necked crane and the Tibetan wild donkey. Enshrined as "holy lake and sacred mountain" along with Gang Rinpoche, Lake Manasarova attracts a large number of pilgrims as well as tourists from home and abroad.
