With the enhancing of the promotion and publicity of Tibet tourism, Tibet has been one of the most attractive tourism destinations above the sea level. Besides, the improvement of the transportation and basic tourism facilities on Tibet Plateau also greatly promoted the development of Tibet tourism. It is reported that Namtso Lake has been the most attractive place for tourists making a Tibet tour in summer.

Located at the center of Nagqu Prairie, Namtso Lake is quite noted for its amazing natural landscape of lake and mountain. It is one of the three holy lakes highly respected by the followers of Tibetan Buddhism on Tibet Plateau. A large number of pilgrims all around the world would come here for pilgrimage every year. It covers an area of 1920 square kilometers with a width of 30 kilometers and a length of 70 kilometers. Namtso Lake is the highest salt water lake above the sea level with an altitude of 4718 meters. It is favored by tourists both at home and abroad.

It is reported that the 6th Namtso Lake International Trekking Assembly will be launched on 14th August, 2012. The theme of the trekking assembly in 2012 is "Happy Trekking around the Holy Lakes and Mountains". The launch ceremony will be held at Potala Palace Square on Aug. 14th. The trekking enthusiasts would have the chance to experience some local style party during the night and enjoy the fascinating natural landscape during the trekking.

Namtso Lake is one of the most amazing places suitable for trekking activities in Tibet. Tourists join the Tibet train tour package and interested in the natural scenery of the holy lakes are suggested to make a visit to Namtso Lake. The flying prayer flags by the lake would always leave tourists deep impression. Tourists will also have the chance to appreciate the amazing starry sky and sunrise glow of Namtso Lake if you stay overnight by the lake. Summer is the best season to visit Namtso Lake since both the weather and climate here are in its best condition. Tourists are highly advised to spend one or two days in Lhasa before making your way to Namtso since the altitude here is more than 1000 meters higher than Lhasa. Get adapted to the plateau environment before moving to an environment with higher elevation would help you to avoid suffering severe altitude sickness.
