This beautiful lake is named Five Color Sea, which is right under the Xiannairi Holy peak(6032M),one of the three holy peaks in Yading National Park. This beautiful national park is the sign of Shangri La in the famous book 'Lost Horizon'. Not really easy to get to this beautiful lake, especially in this high-altitude condition. You will breath more rapid and hard to walk every single step. When I get there in the morning, the sky was still clear. However, the sky suddenly change and forming storm. You never know what weather gonna be in high-altitude area, but this's also why I like it.
