Basum is the name of a well-known lake in the Tibetan cultural region known as Kongpo (located in the contemporary Tibet Autonomous Region, China). However, residents of the villages surrounding the lake speak a non-Tibetan language known locally as "baké" (brag skad) and refer to themselves as the "bami" (brag mi).
