Tashi Dor Island of Namtso Lake in Tibet

Tashi Dor (30.774°N 90.891°ECoordinates:  30.774°N 90.891°E) is a peninsula protruding into Namtso Lake from its south-eastern corner, in the Tibetan Regionof China.

On the peninsula is a small monastery and several hermit caves. Nomadic herders frequently camp on the peninsula, and many species of migratory birds make their home there. The 2005 completion of a paved road linking Tashi Dor with Lhasa, to the south, has precipitated the rapid expansion of tourist-oriented facilities on the peninsula.
