China Travel Photo of the Day: Lake Yamdrok’s photogenic black yak

Unearthly blue of Lake Yamdrok-tso behind and below, one very photogenic yak shows off in its Tibetan finery. Lake Yamdrok (Jade Lake) is one of Tibet’s three largest lakes. About 100km south of Lhasa and 4400m above sea level, it’s not the easiest place in the world to visit, but its astonishing beauty and purity (not to mention its adorable yaks) make it well worth the trouble. Look for more from Chen Bing on her October travels to Tibet here and over at Ctripper.
