Lakes of China

There are so many wonders to see in the land of China, but we think some of the most beautiful have to be the lakes, here are just a couple:
1. Yamdrok Lake (A Pearl from the sky) – was formed from the melted snow of the nearby mountains. It is said to be the female guardian of Buddhism in Tibet. Located 105km to the southwest of Lhasa. Yamdrok-Tso Lake is 130km long from east to west and 70km wide from north to south with a total perimeter of 250km and the surface area of 638 square km, average depth of 20-40 meters – it is the largest lake at the north foot of the Himalayas.
2. Lugu Lake (A pure lake) – The lake has an area of over 50 square km with a sea level of 2690m, the highest lake in Yunnan Province. It is located 260km north of Lijiang City, a border lake between Yunnan Province and Guizhou Province. You can tell its purity as visibility is said to be 11 meters depth – which is very rare.
