Yangbajain Hot Springs Tibet

The Yangbajain hot springs field is at an altitude of 4,290m to 4,500m which makes it the highest hot springs of the world and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The water bubbles up at a temperature of 30 degrees C which at this altitude is above boiling point. Much of the electricity in Lhasa comes from the engineers having harnessed this natural power and there is a huge thermoelectric power.
