(ECNS) -- Yamdrok Lake (also known as Yamdrok Yumtso) is a freshwater lake in Tibet. It is one of the three largest sacred lakes in Tibet. Yamdrok means "jade" in Tibetan, which vividly depicts the limpidity and the fine blue color of the water.

At 4,441 meters above sea level, the lake has a 250 kilometers long shoreline, 130 meters long from east to west and 70 meters wide from south to north.

Due to the high altitude, the temperature in Yamdrok Lake is low in July, and Yamdrok Lake becomes a summer resort for tourists.
