As a typical lake in high mountains, the surrounding snow mountains, forests, and grassland make it look more sacred and mysterious. The terrestrial heat resources are very rich in Cuopu Gully. There are hot springs rising several meters along the way. In addition, what make the area look more mysterious are the peculiar feature of Bathang, and the mysterious Cuopu Lamasery in the gully.
