This study covers the cultural and religious history of two sets of mountains and lakes which have a sacred significance to the nomad communities in northern Tibet, the area known as the 'Byang Thang'. Besides seeking the oral and literary sources, the author also undertook personal surveys of these unique landscape features and their surroundings, discovering in the process cave art, ruins and landforms which are fascinating pointers to the ancient Zhang-Zhung civilization of Tibet.
