Mapam Yumco, also called Manasarovara, considered as a base camp for the Holy Kailash Parikrama. is the lake of compassion, tranquility and bliss. Indian pilgrims complete the memorable morning Bath and Puja here while ancient Chinese believed that is Yaochi, a lake full of nectar, where the Heavenly Emperor’s wife lives. Mt Qomolangma, or Everest stands 8844m, the height our planet reaches. The golden roofs of Potala, Jokhang and Sera shines glittering surface of Lhasa River while Yumbulakhang, the first castle in Tibet, is alone in Yarlung Valley, where Tibetan civilization started. The east Tibet is of high mountains and big rivers where Nanjiabawa Great Canyon brings in wetness from the Indian Ocean, and, is the home of Khamba, a well-built people with strong resistance
