Shey Phoksundo lake. Dolpo, Nepal.
The unearthly, azure blue waters of Lake Phoksundo, located at an altitude of 3,611.5 m (11,849 ft) above sea level in the Dolpa District, changes color constantly with sun and clouds. Majestic mountains ring the water, and the entire area affords the peacefulness found in few other places. There is the Bonpo monastery to the South-East of the lake. The Bonpo Lamas believe the lake contains underwater palace and a tantric Mandala of spirits.
