[#AspirantSG Post] Namco Lake - Highest Salt Lake in the World

Namco means ‘Heaven’ in Tibetan, lies at a height of 4,718 meters above sea level and has a surface area of 1,870 square kilometres. It reigns as the highest salt lake in the world and also the largest salt lake in the Tibet Autonomous Region. Defrosted snow from the mountain range supply the turquoise blue body of the lake. The weather at Namco can change abruptly and snowstorms are very common across the Nyaiqen Tanglha mountain range.
