Lakes in Tibet - February 10th, 2009

The Tibetan Lakes Region, in China, is an arid, windy desert with many mountain ranges and lakes, both large and small, salt and alkaline.

The large lake in the lower left corner is Lumajangdong Co, with an area of 250 km².

The mountains in this area are characterized by their tendency to be disconnected and separated by flat, relatively shallow valleys.

The radar (ASAR) images allow the contours of the mountains and the presence of numerous valleys to be observed in detail.
