Head up to Lake Namtso, a body of water high in the Tibetan mountains, blending a picturesque natural aspect with cultural importance and history. Its name, Tibetan for "Heavenly Lake," makes sense when one considers its altitude and its appearance. At 4,718 m (15,479 ft) above sea level, the lake stands as the highest saltwater lake in the world, while snow-capped mountains and vast grasslands surround the clear blue water in a dramatic natural scene. A long-standing place of pilgrimage, the lake supports a community of pastoral nomads who live in the grasslands around it, along with their colorfully dressed yaks.
