Cuona Lake is the source of the Nu River. The rivers in the south of Cuona Lake in the Tanggula Mountains all merge into Cuona Lake and flow into the Nu River. Cuona Lake is 4800 meters above sea level and covers an area of about 300 square kilometers. It is a freshwater lake. Cuona Lake is a jewel on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. Like Nam Co, this is a lake where believers often come to worship. Legend has it that it was once a bathing place for the Queen Mother of the West. In the eyes of the local Tibetan people, Cuona Lake is a “sacred lake”. In the Tibetan Year of the Dragon, thousands of believers will flock to Cuona Lake to worship. It is located in the heart of the Qiangtang Nature Reserve and is the habitat of rare wild animals on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
You can see Cuona Lake when you sit on the train on the Qinghai-Tibet line. There is a section that runs almost close to the shore of the lake. There is a Tibetan pasture by the lake. Flocks of yaks are foraging and resting on the grass. The modern super project and nature get along well here.
Cuona Lake is more beautiful than Nam Co. There is no pollution here, the lake water is clearer, the color of the lake is really super beautiful, and it is especially blue with two layers of color: one layer of dark blue and one layer of light blue, reflecting the beauty of the lake shore!
Cuona Lake is a very beautiful scenic spot, the scenery is very beautiful, the lake and the sky are blue and clear, the clouds are white, and the famous Qiangtang grassland in northern Tibet near the scenic spot is very beautiful. It should be noted that some places on the road are easily blocked and roads are still being built. In addition, you must prevent altitude sickness.
Cuona Lake is on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway section. When it is about to arrive in Lhasa, this dazzling blue attracts everyone’s attention. Although the train only stops for a short time and pedestrians could not get off the train, beyond the window, the blue lake is breathtaking.
