Qiongguojie Temple Ramla Holy Lake

Qiongguojie Temple Shannan Tibet
Qiongguojie Temple and Ramla Sacred Lake lost far into the remote regions of Tibet. Surrounded by mountains, it is in a meadow covered with flowers auspiciously showing that love is in this small temple. The Ramla Lake is considered one of the sacred lakes in Tibet, even if it is quite small.

Qiongguojie Temple

This Buddhist temple is located at the crossroads. Indeed, it is at the crossroads between four mountains and three rivers. These four mountains are considered the incarnation of God. It was said the southern mountain was changed from legendary hair of Bandanlamu, the guardian angel of Tibet. The temple is a bit like a lotus flower in land. The surrounding meadows are covered with thirteen different kinds of flowers, which provide visitors with a good omen when they bloom on the slopes of these mountains.

Ramla Sacred Lake

Beside the temple there is a Tibetan holy lake, Ramla Lake. From the Tibetan name, it means auspicious lake or sacred lake. At over 5000 meters above sea level, this small lake is a bit like a bowl. It stretches just 1km² and the mountains are reflected in water. Frozen for 7 months of the year, it won’t melt until the summer comes. In this basin, the wind blows from time to time and produces amazing sounds. Sometimes it is also disturb the calm water. Natural beauties, sacred atmosphere, remoteness of Tibet, all of these are ripe for exploration.
