Best tourist spots for crowd-free May Day holiday snaps

8. Nyenpo Yutse (Nyainbo Yuze) Holy Mountain, Qinghai Province

It is called the backyard of the gods for its beauty. The name when translated from the Tibetan language,means the grand mountain of boulders. Located on the border of Qinghai and Sichuan provinces, it is composed of about 3,600 mountains and 360 lakes about 4,000 meters above sea level.

Though it is said Nianbaoyuze has 360 lakes, the local tourism bureau and local Tibetans said they are mainly 16 large lakes and about 300 smaller lakes dotting the mountains.However, because 360 is a lucky number in Buddhism, the Tibetans believe there are 3,600 peaks and 360 lakes in Nianbaoyuze.

Nianbaoyuze is said to be the birthplace of the local Tibetans on the Golok Grassland.

For common visitors, the Fairy Lake is the most approachable. However, even to walk across two lakes takes at least one day.
