The picturesque Shudou Lake
Yunnan

The Shudou Lake lies in the mountains to the east of Shangri-La at an elevation of 3,700 m,Its name in Tibetan means "good yak butter, good grass" which is not surprising since it lies near "Yak Butter Mountain." It is nearly round being about a mile in diameter. It lies in a bowl amid surrounding high hills that are covered with conifers.  The lake probably formed from glaciers in the last ice age about 10,000 years ago.  Most of the lower slopes are devoid of trees and are green due to a lush growth of grass.
