Qinghai Lake Horse Riding
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first saw Qinghai Lake. I was cycling down from the main road, through fields of grass and bright yellow rapeseed flowers when I first caught a glimpse of the blue water. For a split second, I forgot where I was and thought I had somehow made it to the sea!⠀
Located on the northeast of the Tibetan Plateau, Qinghai Lake is incredibly vast - said to be three times the size of Greater London - and is a sacred lake for Buddhist pilgrims. ⠀

Step by step, each angle is beautiful, and each angle is a perfect postcard.
Route 2: Guide-Lajishan-Tal Temple
took out Xining, driving south for several tens of kilometers to the foot of Lajishan. Not far from the hills, the five-color prayer flags fluttered in the wind, climbed up to take pictures, and later learned that Tibetans generally hang on the mountains, intersections, lakes or roofs to pray. It is said that the longer the connection between the warriors and the shackles, the higher the hang, the better the luck, which is why they choose the snow-capped mountains.
When you reach the foot of the mountain, the right hand side is a compelling green, and the left hand side is a dazzling Danxia landform that is not pleasing in the grass in the afternoon sun. A crisscrossed, fine layered layer.
The first time I saw the clear green green river, the trip was worth again. The statement that a basin of river water and half basin mud does not apply in Guide. If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe that there would be such a clear and clear Yellow River water anyway.

Super uncomfortable, I thought that the Crescent Moon Spring is very far away, I dont want to go to take a camel! I know that its not too far away for us to go in. Its less than 20 minutes, and it cost 600 yuan. The money is good, mainly because it is particularly uncomfortable!
National Road, in fact, most of the roads in Qinghai are like this. If you want to shoot, talk to the driver and stop to take a shot. Remember to pay attention to safety! There are other cars on the road!
Emerald Lake, many people choose to go to Chaka Salt Lake, I have also gone! Teaka Salt Lake, there are many people. After all, it is a scenic spot that has been developed. It can't take any good photos! The difference between Emerald Lake is free, but not every Qinghai driver goes back, so go and tell the driver in advance!

I don't know if they told the boss that they are all charged, and they are charged. My driver is better, take my door for free. of! But the driver also asked us not to go to the charge, mainly we have not seen more people!
rapeseed field, I am going to charge! I went to the end of September, Xining up the mountain is these pieces of rapeseed field! Seriously, rape blossoms are stinking! Originally thought that because the season is gone! Finally, I saw a few shots!
