Default Lake Qing Hai, China

Lake Qing Hai, the largest fresh water lake in China, is located in the remote area of Qing Hai Province. It is the largest fresh water lake in China. It is so huge that all you can see is the blue water. I took several pictures on its shore and the mountains around it. At one time, the lake was used as a topedo testing area as noted by the monument in the first picture.

Weapon testing was kept in secrecy in those days and no-one would imagine they tested topedos in the North Western China where ther is no ocean. I guess water is water and it doesn't matter whether it is salt water or fresh water as long as the lake is big enough to simulate an oceanic environment.
