Lugu Lake - the tears of God
Lugu Lake, located at the junction of Sichuan Province and Yunnan Province, having a lake area of 50.1 square kilometers, is the highest lake in Yunnan province (2690 m above sea level) and the third deepest water lake in China, the water of which is clear and blue, with unparalleled water quality and maximum transparency up to 12 meters. Surrounding the Lugu Lake, there are mainly the Mosuo, Yi and Pumi nationality inhabited. The beautiful natural environment and unique ethnic customs, make it a heavenly place. It is now "Mother Lake" in the heart of the Mosuo nationality with still keeping traditional matriarchal society, and the dreamland of countless travelers, known as the " a drop of tears by God". Lugu Lake, without burning sun in summer, having large temperature difference day and night and cool weather, is a world-class summer resort.

  Overview of the Zenker Summer Camp
Zenker Summer Camp Base of Lugu Lake is located in the side of Sichuan Caohai in Lugu Lake, surrounded by mountains, with islands standing in the lake, picturesque one-meter high green reed. The Mosuo girl sings the folk song, slowly paddles the boat to enter the deep place of Caohai, ditches a waterway in the water grass, startles a flock of gulls and herons. Summer is the most beautiful season in Lugu Lake, with the colorful galsang flowers shaking in the wind on the shore and plain willow catkins in the water formed the beautiful contrast. This scene will become the children's life memories.
