Shimo Lake

Shimo Lake: this road is not for timid drivers

Shimo Co is a glacial lake at an elevation of 5.070m (16,633ft) above the sea level, located in Kangmar County of Xigazê in the Tibet Autonomous Region.

The road to the lake is totally unpaved, with rocky parts A 4x4 vehicle with high clearance is required. The area is pretty remote, so facilities like electricity, medical aid, hot running water, western toilets etc. are rare to find. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common.
The drive offers amazing scenery. Starting at Dilicun, a small village, the road is 6km long. The road is mostly flat.
