Nagenla Mountain first view of Lake Namtso

Nagenla Mountain Lhasa Tibet
The Nagenla Mountain, between Lhasa and Namtso Lake, is the ideal destination to admire one of the most important holy lakes in Tibet. The climbing is worthwhile for the beauty and serenity of the holy lakes.

To access Namtso Lake from Lhasa, one route is recommended and it passes through the neck Nagenla Mountain. Located at 5,190 meters above sea level, it is an obligatory passage to access this fantastic sacred lake. Even by car, the climbing is not easy, but what a joy once you arrive! Prayer flags are hung everywhere but it is not what makes it an amazing place. Here, the blue water blends with the blue sky, wildlife grazing on the banks and migratory birds make their nests for several months. Indeed, the landscape of this vast expanse of salt water often provides a sense of serenity to all. By dust, we can then begin the descent to the shores of the lake.
