Shuduhai Lake is located 35kilometers to the northeast of the Zhongdian county seat and it is more then 10 kilometers away from the Bitahai Lake.
Clear water, lovely fish, herds of cows and sheep, and surrounded by lots of primitive forests is the truly description of Shuduhai Lake. The lake water is so limpid that people could see the cracked-stomach fish produced in the lake whose colour is golden and there is a crack line along its stomach.
"Shu"means cheese in Tibetan and "Du" has the meaning of stone. It has a legend that in ancient times, an eminent monk roamed from place to place, one day, he arrived here. The herdsmen supported and served him with cheese. The eminent monk was glad to see that the cheese of the pastureland of Shudukang is as strong as stone, so he prayed " Wish the cheese here is as strong as stone forever". From then on the name of Shudukang came into being.
