High altitude freshwater lake fed by the Kailash Glaciers near Mount Kailash in the Tibet Autonomous Region, China (15,060 ft). The lake is considered sacred by the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain religions. The lake is frozen in winter.
The Holy Lake provides many caves on its shores, fine camping grounds and good sites, and therefore Tibetans build monasteries and houses. It is marshy in certain places and rocky or sandy in others. One comes across boulders as smooth and round as pebbles and slabs as finely cut and shaped as slates.
Mount Kailash (21,778 ft), located nearby, is also considered very sacred.
