What travelers say:

Note this is the 'local entrance' not the 'main entrance'. No ticket is required for this and much less people. Enormous salt lake, this one is a little different to Caka in that you can't see the salt. It's a protected lake, so no entering it, no swimming, no fishing etc. It's such a peaceful place, perfect for self reflection and quiet contemplation.  And the picture opportunities are incredible.  One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen in China. You can ride horses, bikes or yaks around, or just walk and enjoy the moment. Lots of homestay and restaurants around. Good local food. Must visit in Qinghai. Around 3 hours from Xining city

Additional Information


Qinghai Lake is a famous tourist destination in Qinghai Province and the source of the province's name. The shoreline of the lake is approximately 360 kilometers long. The lake is surrounded by mountains and grassland, creating a magnificent sight. The lake’s scenery changes with the seasons. Every year in July and August, the many canola flowers around the lake come into bloom. The yellow of the canola fields complements the blue of the lake beautifully. In winter the lake is covered by a massive sheet of ice, creating otherworldly scenery.
