at the Nangpa La Pass between Tibet and Nepal on September 30, 2006.
Lake, 30 km across and 70 km long, is the world's biggest and highest salt-water lake.
Also in 2004, Tibetan and Chinese intellectuals successfully petitioned to stop Han Chinese sportsman Zhang Jian from swimming across Lake Namtso
in the TAR, a lake believed by many Tibetan Buddhists to be sacred.
In addition, 'outdoors-men' on the 9-day Classical and Namtso

In July 2004, Tibetan and Chinese intellectuals succeeded in their petition drive to prevent Han Chinese sportsman Zhang Jian from swimming across Lake Namtso
in the TAR, which many Tibetan Buddhists hold to be sacred.
