About Gurudongmar lake

Gurudongmar lake is one of the highest lakes in the world. It is located at a height of 17000 feet and lies on the north side of the Khangchengyao range, surrounded by the snow capped mountains. The sacred lake has a spot which does not freeze during the winters, unlike the rest of the lake. It is said that it is blessed. Just a few kilometers away from the lake is the Chinese Tibetan border. 

It is believed that the holy water of the lake miraculously grants the childless couples with children. These myths are believed by the Hindus as much as by the Buddhists. 

The name of the lake comes from the name of Guru Padmasambhava, who, according beliefs has blessed the lake with miraculous powers. He is said to have visited Tibet through that area. There is also a temple dedicated to him beside the lake.
