Gurudongmar Lake, considered sacred by Buddhists, Sikhs, and Hindus, is one of the world's highest lakes. Glaciers from the Kanchengyao mountain range feed the freshwater lake. It is home to yaks, musk deer, mountain goats, and blue sheep, to name a few. The water is crystal clear, and the bed is visible from the centre of the lake.
Visit our Summit Penghan Metok Hotel in Lachen to explore the magnificent lake at an elevation of 17,000 feet above mean sea level.
