It is easy for us to appreciate the scene of Nam Tso and Nyainqentanglha Peak in the same frame. The air in this area is highly transparent. The Nyainqentanglha Mountain Range is one of the main mountain ranges on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. The main peak of the Nyainqentanglha Peak is 7162 meters above sea level. The northwest foothills of the main peak is Nam Tso, the second largest saltwater lake in China. According to legend, "Nam Tso was the daughter of Sakra-devanam-Indra and the wife of Nyainqentanglha". The Nyainqentanglha mountain range is located in the Tibet Autonomous Region and divides Tibet into three major regions: northern Tibet, southern Tibet, and southeastern Tibet.
