Tanggula Mountains, mountain range in the Tibet Autonomous Region, southwestern China. On the high plateau south of the mountains, there are many large salt lakes.

Although many peaks are higher than 19,000 feet (5,700 meters) and the tallest, Basudan Ula, reaches some 20,000 feet (6,100 meters), the mountains do not appear to be particularly high, since the surrounding plateau averages about 16,500 feet (5,000 meters) above sea level. The range is fairly rounded in contour in the west; the most rugged and deeply incised section is in the east, where there are considerable areas of permanent snow.

Being the second largest saltwater lake in China only after Qinghai Lake, Namtso is the biggest lake throughout Tibet. Meanwhile, it is the highest altitude saltwater lake in the world. The water here is a storybook crystal-clear blue. Clear skies join its surface in the distance, creating an integrated, scenic vista. Soul of every visitor who has ever been here seems to be cleansed by the pure water.

Day 9: Damxung/Yangpachen-Lhasa

People are amazed to see that while the neighboring regions are areas of frozen soil covered with ice for over half the year, there exists a 40-sqaure kilometer area which is a carpet of lush green grass. It is said that Yangpachen in the morning is most attractive when it offers visitors illusions of a fairy land. When the air is still cool in the early hours of a day, masses of mist rise from the lake like a sea of cloud.
