Considered to be sacred by the Buddhists, Sikhs, and the Hindus, Gurudongmar Lake is one of the highest lakes in the world. The freshwater lake is fed by glaciers from the Kanchengyao range of mountains. It is inhabited by Yaks, Musk deer, Mountain goats, and blue sheep to name a few. The water is crystal clear and the bed can be seen from the middle of the lake.
