One of the holiest sites in Jakar, the Burning Lake, also known as Mebar Tso, is surrounded by green mountains and lush valleys. This fresh-water lake has a very rich and interesting history and the local guide tells it with such an enthusiasm that one actually feels like they are a part it. This serene site is a must-visit if you are in the vicinity.
Mebar Tso, in Tang Valley takes about 30 minutes to reach from Jakar. This is considered to be a sacred sight for pilgrimage as it is said to be where Guru Rinpoche's hidden treasures were found by Pema Lingpa . It holds great spiritual significance for the pilgrims, marked with colourful prayer flags and butter lamps offered by them. It is more of a river gorge (Tang chhu river) with beautiful surroundings to suit a nature-lover's taste . However, tourists are advised to excercise caution while in the area as a number of lives have been lost due to the fast-flowing river.
