The lake is situated 30km southeast of Mt. Holy (Kailash). It has an area of 400 square kilometer. The Buddhists believe that the lake is the bestowal from the heaven. The holy water can cure all kinds of diseases, wash people clean and get rid of people’s worries. After walking around the lake and taking baths at the Four Bathing Gates, the pilgrims can be free from sins and be bestowed happiness.The great monk Xuan Zhuang praised it “the Holy Lake in the West Heaven”. Not far from the lake stands Mt. Holy (Kailash). It does not only attract pilgrims but also many tourists from home and abroad.
