Image Caption: Pristine lakes in the high Tibeten plateau, (34.0N, 89.5E) one of the most remote regions of the world, are still partially frozen in this early spring photo. The lakes are almost the only source of water to support life in this harsh region and have been formed as a result of the Indian sub continent's incursion into the Asian continent, raising the water table and forming these many lakes in an otherwise barren landscape.
