Ciao Cinthia,

The land is Amdo, which is now part of China (Qinghai province) but belongs actually to the historical Tibet. The land is a lake on the Yellow River due to an hydro dam.

Bye, JiCé.

JiCé Sowa on February 4, 2011

Thank you Ma Isa for your comment. But never trust a picture, it often lies ;-) This area is not so beautiful, full of hydro constructions and power supply plants...

Ma Isa on March 2, 2011

yes,i knew about these issues,bcuz the yellow river flow through my hometown from there with much fewer water than many years before,i would belive some of the reason is, like you said,too many hydro constructions were built^ but your pics really attract me:)
