Lake Manasarovar

  • South of Kailash, across the great plain of Barga, at the base of the Mount Gurla Mandhata are the two lakes of Mapham Yutso (Manasarovar, 330 sq kms) and Lhanag Tso (Rakshas Tal, 224 sq kms), the Manasarovar being the highest body of fresh water in the world (4558 m). The two lakes are connected by a channed called the Ganga Chu. [MR]
