Yi'ong Lake in southeastern Tibet Autonomous Region sits 2,200 meters above sea level in an area that is a magnificent visual feast with vast lakes and dense forests.
In the Southeastern Tibet Series, we focus on the magnificent southeastern Tibet. Unlike the common Tibet we know, the southeastern area has glaciers, lakes, snow mountains, meadow, forest and wetland. The water vapor and heat from the Indian Ocean have passed through canyons until they reach the inner land of Tibet, making the southeastern part a place of warmth and greenery. Tibetan rhesus macaque, black-necked cranes together with other incredible animals and plants, are living harmoniously on the land of southeastern Tibet.
