7. Yamdrok-tso–turquoise earbobs scattered by a fairy

Yamdrok-tso is considered to be the most beautiful water in the world. It means the "jade lake on the pasture" in Tibetan. However, the Tibetans think it is the turquoise earbob scattered by a fairy. No matter at what angle, you can not see the panorama of Yamdrok- tso.

Yamdrok-tso is special for its water source, snow water of Nyenchhen Tanglha Mountain Range. The water has no outlet, the snow water's inflow and its natural evaporation has reached a natural equilibrium.
