In the fifth and sixth month of the Tibetan calendar each year, many Buddhists come to the lake pay homage and pray. Walking around Namtso lake takes a week. Ritual walkers love to burn aromatic plants to raise smoke on Auspicious Island and throw a piece of hada scarf into the lake as a token of fulfilled wishes. If the scarf sinks, it implies ones wish is accepted by the Buddha; if the scarf flows on the water or only half sinks, it means one has failed to be honest and something unhappy may lie ahead. On the four sides of the lake stand four monasteries, which have Buddhist meanings. By the lake there are also two standing stone pillars, each rising 30 meters and eight meters apart. One has a crack large enough to hold a single person inside. Some Tibetans believe it is the Gate God of the Namtso Lake.
