Gangcha is a county under the jurisdiction of Qinghai Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It is located on the northern shore of Qinghai Lake. We drove all the way from Chaka Salt Lake to the county government in Shaliuhe Town. Gangcha County is 180 kilometers away from Xining, with an average elevation of 3,300 meters. The 315 National Highway Huangjia Highway and Qinghai-Tibet Railway run through the county. From here to the north, it is connected to the Qilian Mountains and the Hexi Corridor with convenient transportation. This area is a must pass by the West Road around Qinghai Lake, but there are relatively few tourists, because short-term tours around Qinghai Lake on the 1st or 2nd cannot come here.
The natural scenery and cultural heritages of Gangcha County are very unique, such as Qinghai Lake Bird Island, Nianqin Xia Geri Mountain where the Queen Mother of the West lived, the historical Halong, Shebuqi rock paintings and Xiangyang Ancient City. The car drove all the way to the Cangyang Gyatso Cultural Square at the east entrance of Gangcha County, where there are sculptures, squares, green areas and other facilities of the coastal Tibetan city. The most impressive thing is that there are many carved Cangyang Jia on the grass around the square. Stone carvings of various shapes and sizes, such as cuoqing poems, six-character mantras, famous quotes. If you don’t make a special trip to Gangcha, you must go to Cangyang Gyatso Cultural Square, Compassion Wisdom Eye Thanksgiving Pagoda, Sanskrit Wind Language Links, Gangcha Pass Prayer Flags, etc. for cycling and self-driving. They are all a drop in the route. Attractions can be transferred in about 2-3 hours.
