Enjoy Pearl on the Plateau

Decao sends this from his travels to Gahai lake, “Pearl on the Plateau”.

I went outside to Maqu region on Tibetan Plateau to design a research project. On the way to the place, I saw a big lake “Gahai lake”. The Gahai Lake in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, southern Gansu Province, is called “pearl on plateau.” Location: 37°08′N, 97°31′E. The altitude is 3200 m. The area is about 600 ha. You can find the pictures and video from the following web:
