Lake Nam-TSO (Namco, Tengri-Nur, the “heavenly lake”) lies at an altitude of about 4,700 m in the Northern slopes of the ridge Genentech. There are several small uninhabited Islands. The pilgrims came here in late winter on ice and remained in seclusion until the onset of next winter, back when the lake was again placed on ice. Now this practice is forbidden by the Chinese authorities.
