Lhamolhatso Lake,is called "the Spirit of the Celestial Maid Lake" with an altitude of 4000m, which is most legendary lake in Tibet. It covers an area of one sq. km in oval shape. The lake plays an important role in the reincarnation system of Living Buddhas in Tibetan Buddhism. Therefore the supreme homage from pilgrims comes to the lake. It is said that the reincarnation clues for every Living Buddha,like Dalai Lama or Panchen Lama, is appointed to a senior monk to practice divination by the lake and got a hint from the Heaven. Nearby the lake are the large relics of architectural complex of the Chokorgyal Monastery.
