Bita means "a piece
of land as soft as cattle hair felt" in Tibet
language, "Hai" means "sea".
Roads have been constructed to this scenic area.
The total area of the "sea" is 3,000
meters in length, the maximum width of the lake
is over 700 meters. The altitude of the lake is
3,540 meters forming up by gathering the water
streaming down from the surrounding mountains.
One of the two distinctive biological
characters of the lake is the 50 - centimeter
- thick grass coverings on the surface of the
lake, creating a world of floating hydrophyte.
The other is the scene happening every late spring
and early summer. When the azalea on the surrounding
mountains are in full bloom, the fish in the water
are always found lethargic sleep on the surface
of the lake for swallowing some lightly - poisonous
petals falling off the azalea. The local people
call this wonder as "Fish Drunk by Azalea".
In the primeval forest on the north bank of the
lake, many cabins are built there for the convenience
of the tourists. Activities like horse riding,
trekking and boating are available at the customer's
