There are numerous lakes with different colors dotted between Tibetan snow-capped mountains and boundless grasslands.
According to the legend, Siling was an evil monster who lived in Lhasa. Every day, the monster ate thousands of living things including beasts, animals, etc. No one can conquer it. One day, a powerful Buddhist encountered Siling and decided to conquer it. Then, the monster ran away into a broad lake located in Xainza County and Baingoin County of the Nagqu Prefecture. The Buddhist command it to repent itself, and stay in the lake forever. Thus, Siling Lake is named by the powerful man.
