Menyuan Rapeseed Flower Field is located in Menyuan County in Qinghai Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It has a large rapeseed base in Qinghai and is the main vegetable oil-producing area in the northwest. Every July is the season for rapeseeds to blossom. From Qingshizui in the west to Yulongtan in the east, Lenglongling in the north bordering Gansu, and Dabanshan in the south, the rapeseed blossoms stretch for dozens of kilometers, and the entire Menyuan area becomes an ocean of gold.
On our North-West-China Roadtrip we drove back to Xining on our last day. On our way we discovered this beautiful oilseed rape flower field. The colours together with the mountains and mountain villages look stunning. Local farmers sell fresh and tasty honey.
🏴 How to get here? You can drive by car or take a bus and train to MenYuan station (门源站). It's a 2-3 hours drive from Qinghais capital Xining.
🍂 When to go? I recommend May-September. The weather is nice and daytime temperature is warm. The sunset is especially nice!
🎟️ There is a scenic spot called 百里油菜花景区. It's not necessary to go there, you have more or less the same view anywhere else. If you want some infrastructure, the scenic spot might be better!
