Yamdrok Lake, Tibet
Travelling from Lhasa to Gyantse, tha Kamba Pass climbs 1000m on a long and winding road where the summit sits at 4,800m above sea level. The panoramic view that opens up at the top is nothing short of breathtaking. The spectacular Yamdrok Lake is one of 3 sacred lakes in Tibet and one of the most stunning sights I have ever witnessed. It is said that praying to the lake helps unearth the reincarnated soul of the Dalai Lama.
