Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Yamdrok Lake

Yamdrok Lake is one of the three largest sacred lakes in Tibet. The lake is surrounded by many snow-capped mountains and is fed by numerous small streams. We drove by it on our way from Lhasa to Everest. Here are some pictures of this incredibly beautiful area of water.

Coming up on Yamdrok. Beautiful green blue waters and a stoic snow capped mountain in the background.

An old fortress or housing of some sort, over looking the lake.

A dam at the edge of the lake. I'm told there is a power station that was built here to harness he power from Yamdrok.

Upon returning from Everest we again came past Yamdrok. Here we see an old castle on an island in the lake.

As the sun begins to set, another beautiful day in Tibet starts to close. How fortunate we were to be there and to view this beautiful area.
