    Yanghu is one of the most admirable places in Tibet and one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet. We arrived in Tibet from seven people and went straight to Yanghu on the second day of Lhasa. There was a ticket under Yanghu, which cost 40 yuan. But a chartered driver we contacted at that time said he didn't need tickets to take us in because he was a local person. 1. On the day of arriving at Yanghu from Lhasa, we will return 100 yuan to each person. It will take about 2 hours on a one-way trip. I thought it might not be worthwhile, but when I saw Yanghu, I didn't regret it because it was so beautiful. 2. There are many Tibetans selling things beside Yanghu Lake. In addition, taking pictures with yaks also requires a fee, about 5-10 yuan once. 3. Gongbala Pass on Yanghu Road. Here you can see the water and sky are the same. You have a wide view. You must get off the bus! __________ 4. Walk down to the Yanghu viewing terrace. Many Nima piles are suitable for taking photos along the way. It is suggested that we return on the same day. About the weather: Although it is summer, but the temperature difference in Lhasa is large, return to the hot spot from noon to afternoon, but the night is cold, so there is no air conditioning in Lhasa! In addition, if we had just gone to Lhasa to suggest that we prepare oxygen cylinders, then one of our direct flying companions was a little hypoxic that night because she had just come and went to Namco with us. Later, I had no choice but to go down that night. About charter: Please prepare your own software for Lhasa's traffic, but here's not much to say. When we arrived in Lhasa, we chartered to Yanghu. The master's telephone and Wechat are still there. The price of Yanghu is 100 per person. There is no ticket for the Chartered bus to and from Yanghu.

    One of the three sacred lakes in Tibet. When the sun shines at different times, the lake water will show different blue. Yangzhuoyongcuo, which means "Swan Pool" in Tibetan, is one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet. It is also called Yangzhuoyong Lake (commonly referred to as "Yanghu" in Tibetan, because Tibetan "Cho" means "Lake". Geographically, it belongs to Langkazi County in Shannan District. The lake has an elevation of 4441 meters, a total length of 250 kilometers, a total area of 638 square kilometers, and a depth of 20-40 meters. It is the largest inland lake in the northern foot of the Himalayas. There are many forks in Yanghu Lake, like coral branches, so it is also called "the coral Lake above" in Tibetan. There are more than 10 small islands in the lake. The large one can accommodate 56 households, while the small one only has more than 100 square meters. The lake is rich in fine scaled fish, Tibetan cleft fish, plateau naked carp and so on. It is also the largest waterfowl habitat in southern Tibet. In winter, birds migrate southward. There are many swans, pigeons, yellow ducks, owls and zebra geese along the lakeshore and the lake island. Yangzhuo Yongcuo is much more beautiful than near contact. It takes about 30 minutes to go down the highway to Yanghu Lake after crossing the 5030m Gongbala Pass. This is the best way to appreciate Yangzhuo Yongcuo. Yangzhuo Yongcuo, Namucuo and Mapan Yongcuo are also known as the three sacred lakes in Tibet. Its Tibetan meaning is "Swan Pool", also known as Yangzhuoyong Lake (often referred to as "Yanghu"), Yanghu has many forks, like coral branches, and it is said that Yanghu is like a scorpion. In the minds of Tibetans, Yanghu Lake is regarded as "the Turquoise eardrops scattered by goddesses". When the sun shines at different times, the water of Yanghu Lake will show different blue. The camera lens can't record its azure blue, it can only be realized by personal experience. Pictures with Tibetan Mastiff and Yak at 10 yuan per person/here

    One of the representatives of Plateau lakes. Driving from Lhasa takes more than an hour on a high-altitude mountain road (formerly in the direction of Shigaze). Basically all day above 4,000 altitudes, the head began to crack. The scenery of Yangzhuoyong Lake is indescribable. If Basongtso is a paradise on earth, then Yangzhuoyong Lake is a fairy sight without human fireworks. The lake is blue, the sky is pure blue, the snow mountain is pure white, the whole world seems only blue and white. The friends in the same trade sighed that the Yanghu Lake in winter was much more beautiful than that one in summer. I stayed for 30 minutes, took some pictures of snowy mountains and yaks. Gao Bai began to ravage me, spent two yuan in Xianjing public toilet to get a little ice and snow solution and left.

    From Gongga County to Yanghu Lake, it took two hours. On the way, the clouds were light and the wind was light. The weather was especially clear, which made people feel happy. When we finally turned two corners to see Yanghu Lake, we were amazed by the scenery of the Shenhu Lake. The winding Lake in the sunshine, like a mirror reflecting the blue sky, white clouds and mountains, as if to see two equally beautiful world, is this the legendary place to see the past and present life? There are too many visitors around the viewing platform. Yaks and Tibetan mastiffs are also dressed up as blue, red, purple and green tourists for a group photo! We felt that the bustling environment was not suitable for enjoying the beautiful scenery. In order to get closer to Shenhu Lake, we drove down the road and arrived at a beach where we could walk to the lake in ten minutes. There are almost no visitors here, and it becomes very quiet. At this time, the lake appears green, clear and transparent, and the waves are not alarming! Mani piles stand quietly on the beach, slowly adding a stone to the top of each Mani pile to beg for the blessings of relatives, and the mind is very calm! ____________

The snow mountain in the distance of blue sky and white clouds is 4998 meters above sea level, far from the city, high, quiet, pure and beautiful.

    Haha standard tourists took the first picture. I went to Yanghu twice, each time in a different way. On the Tibetan side, all the mistakes are lakes. Yangzhuoyongcuo is one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet. You can pat your forehead with the water of Yanghu Lake and wash your hands. But you must not wash your feet with the water of Yanghu Lake. In Tibetan areas, you can chop off your feet if you wash your feet with the water of Shenghu Lake. So, friends, do as the Romans do, let's respect the local customs.

    Yanghu is so beautiful. I came to Tibet during the Spring Festival in February. I was worried about the beauty of the scenic spots, but now I do have many worries. I went to Yanghu twice, the first time because it had just snowed, the cloudy day, took a picture of Yanghu was ridiculed by my friends, my heart secretly determined to go again when the weather was good, as expected, the second time to Yanghu, blue sky, white clouds one by one, against the Yanghu, I felt heartbeat. Winter scenery is unique, half ice and half water, as well as ice and water, against the distant snow mountains, beautiful beyond necessity! Every season is worth visiting Yanghu Lake. Come on, it will never disappoint you.

    The Yanghu Lake in June was a rainy season; the weather was cloudy, but it was still beautiful. Yang Lake, the full name of Yang Zhuo Yong fault, is located in the southern area of Tibet's lac Kazi County, about 70 km away from southwest Lhasa, and Nam Co, Ma Pang Yong wrong, also known as the three largest sacred lake in Tibet. The lake is as blue as a gem. Even if the weather is not strong enough, it still can not keep the beauty of the lake. Yanghu Lake is 4441 meters above sea level. It's very cold. I must wear cotton clothes. My windbreaker is very cold and cold. In the first viewing platform, there are some beautifully decorated yaks, which need a good price to take photos; even if you accidentally show a corner of the cattle in your photos, it will be charged to be found... All in all, it's worth it. It's really beautiful.

    Yangzhuoyongchou Lake, also known as Yanghu Lake, is the most beautiful lake I met in Tibet. The blue is really beyond description. The lake is calm, like a big mirror, blue sky and white clouds, a beautiful picture scroll. It is one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet, with an elevation of more than 4,000, walking faster and breathing slowly. After the viewing platform is finished, you can go down to the lake and continue to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Yanghu has always been one of the sacred lakes in my mind. This time, I witnessed it with my own eyes, I only know that I forgot Gao Fan, forget my headache, and the whole person seems to be full of blood and resurrection. Like a blue gemstone set between heaven and earth, it shocked me deeply. I believe that her beauty will shock everyone who comes here. "Yangzhuoyongcuo" - the nearest spiritual sanctuary to heaven. Ticket 40. Best viewing season September-November.
