Namtso

It is said that "one must go to Tibet at least once in one's life". Indeed, the secret region of Tibet attracts the attention of tourists from all over the world. To understand its mystery and beauty, one must be present in person and savor it carefully. Come to Namtso together.

Namtso is the highest salt water lake in the world, one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet and the largest lake in Tibet. From June to September every year, it is the best time to visit. 240 kilometers north of Lhasa, you can reach Namtso. The white snow mountain and the blue lake complement each other, and the beauty is suffocating. When you meet this beautiful scene, you will feel the purification and sublimation of your mind.

Namtso was formed two million years ago. In the process of crustal movement, the location of Namtso collapsed and formed a great lake through glaciation. At that time, the lake was at a low altitude, with a warm and humid climate. The lake was as green as the sea. Later, the crust continued to rise, and the altitude of Namtso increased step by step. The climate became more and more cold and dry, which greatly reduced the lake surface. Now, Namtso belongs to the plateau sub cold zone monsoon semi-arid climate. The climate is cold, the air is thin, and there are many rainy days. In summer, there are still lake land breeze phenomena. According to the climate conditions of Namtso, some tourism strategies are provided.

Namtso
  • First of all, pay attention to prevent low temperature. The altitude of Namtso lake is more than 4700 meters, and the annual average temperature is only 0 ℃. Even in midsummer, the temperature at night is only a few degrees, and the down jacket must be brought. If you spend the night by the lake, build a thick blanket. Otherwise, a cold can cause highland pulmonary edema in one day, which will be life-threatening.
  • Secondly, we should defend against altitude response. Namtso is more than 1000 meters higher than Lhasa, where the plateau reaction is much more serious. It is suggested that you go to Namtso for a rest of 2 days in Lhasa, and take the medicine for prevention and treatment of altitude reaction in advance, and take the oxygen bag. In the scenic area, you should walk slowly to prevent asthma or slipping.
  • Third, sun protection should not be sloppy. The atmosphere over namtso is relatively thin, and the ultraviolet rays in the sun do great harm to people's skin. You'd better put on the sunscreen suitable for the plateau and wear sunglasses.
  • In addition, we should prevent strong wind, heavy rain and hail. Namtso's weather is changeable. If there is bad weather, the scenic area may be temporarily closed. You can log in to China weather net and check the weather forecast of Dangxiong county and bange County for reference.
