"Tso" means lake in Tibetan. Namtso means the sky lake. It is one of the three holy lakes among Tibetan. It is also a salty water lake at the highest elevation in the world, 15,500 feet above the sea level. Lake Namso is 200KM from Lhasa. If you want to charter a car to go there, the price base is 3.5RMB/KM. You might find some agents in the Baojian street for a one day trip. If you want to stay at the tent hotels over night, you will need a charter car. Here I recommend our driver for your reference, Mr. Tse Ren Sun Bu, 0891-6679146. He claims he can speak English. Different season may have different price.

The weather in Tibet changes very fast. During the 200KM trip to lake Namtso, we saw sunny, cloudy, raining, and even hail.
