A large bittern-salt lake in the Gangdise Mountains in the interior of the Tibetan Plateau. The lake consists of two sub-basins, a southern and a northern one, which are joined by a narrow channel. The lake has a total area of 243 km2, a mean depth of 70 cm, and a maximum depth of less than 2 m. The salt content of the lake water is 360-410 g/l. The basin originated through faulted structures. The underlying bedrock is Cretaceous-Eogene acidic igneous rocks, mudstones and sandstones. A large area of playa is being exposed around the lake, and mirabilite is currently being deposited in the lake.


Note: The Tibetan name of the lake is Chabyer Caka (alternatively Chabyer Co), which becomes Zhabuye Chaka (alternatively Zhabuye Cuo) in standard Chinese phonetics. "Zabuye" is a mis-nomer (the Chinese character 扎 transliterates to "Zha", not "Za"). Nonetheless, the name of the mineral that was named for this lake is spelled "Zabuyelite", not "Zhabuyelite".
