The Lake Banggong extends from Rutog of China to Indian controlled Kashmir. In Tibetan, it is called the Com Ngangla Ringbo Lake, meaning a long-neck goose, for its narrow shape. It is 150 kilometers long and five kilometers wide with the narrowest section being only five meters. The lake covers an area of 604 square kilometers. In the lake there are a dozen islets on which inhabit various species of birds.
(Some 10 kilometers out of the county seat, tourists can see the lake. On the southern bank, there is a simple highway. Tourists can take a taxi to go. But it takes 40 minutes by boat to the Bird Islet in the lake.)
