Tian Shan ( 天池 ), the Heavenly Lake, Xinjiang China

Tian Shan is a vast lake that sits at around 2000m above sea level in the north west corner of China in Xinjiang. Dramatic mountain ranges and alpine forest flank the lake in all directions. Its relative remoteness has preserved it from overdevelopment. A monastery overlooks the lake from one of the ridges.
