The Qilian Mountain Scenic Area is a natural ecological and tourist area encompassing forest, grassland and a glacier in one location northwest of Niuxin Mountain. Scenic locations include Shilin and the mountain itself. Qilian Mountain is located at the boundary line of Gansu and Qinghai and is one of China's most important mountain ridges. The four seasons in this place aren't very distinct from each other, that is, spring and summer have a tendency not to resemble spring and summer. "Six Months of Snow of Qilian" is a portrayal of Qilian's climate and natural scenery.

Qilian county (祁连县) is a small county in the mountainy border-region to South-Gansu. The small town with the same name offers hotels, restaurants and small shops and is quite buzzling.
The pictures above where taken in the surrounding countryside, namely close to some small villages around the scenic area of ZhuoErShan (卓尔山风景区). For grassland and mountain view you can go there, it's not bad. But if you really want to hike you have to find a local who takes you there for some money or you just drive through the villages and find a way to the untouched nature by yourself.
↪️ You can come to Qilian county by renting a car or by public bus. There is no train route or airport closeby.
🍂 Summer is warm and dry, winter gets really cold and snowy.
🏔 Sure is Qilian Mountain the Switzerland of China as they call. A blend of mountainous roads leading into this town, grasslands with herds of cattle, and the snow-capped mountains with pine trees is the scenery that brought me to this place.
📌 The day I travelled to this town, which is located in the border of Qinghai and Gansu provinces, it was raining heavily that I could barely see anything. We approached Qilian Mountain in the late afternoon and enjoyed the first evening after the rain. Colorful lightings were lit up all over one of the main hills in town very beautifully, very beautifully.
🏞 The morning after, the sky was clear and that’s when we visited the scenic area. It was fantastic! The fresh alpine air, moo-moo sound from local cattle on the hill, and the breathtaking vista of high mountains make this place very special.
🌲This alpine region is one of the few places in China where I totally could escape from the crowds, also just to be able to immerse myself in the nature.

Qilian Mountain is a very beautiful and beautiful mountain range, located at the junction of Gansu Province and northern Qinghai. It is said that it is magical because there are different landscapes. In the summer of Gansu, there may be snow-capped mountains. Maybe one side is like a fire and there is heavy snow. It is said that it is beautiful because there is a patch of prairie and alpine meadows everywhere in the Qilian Mountains. When these grasslands and alpine meadows are covered with flocks and yaks, they will feel here. Such experience with beautiful scenery. Therefore, Qilian Mountain is a very magical and beautiful mountain. And its grassland is more beautiful, and the beauty makes people feel that this is not in China, but in the snowy mountains of European towns. This time, Yamano took everyone to the foreland of the Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Region in the Qinghai Province, and saw the snowfall. The summit of the entire grassland was covered with white snow. On the ground is a green grass that suddenly gives people a return to nature, and has a very comfortable and cool feeling.
Qilian County is located in Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Qinghai Province. It is named after the hinterland of the middle section of the Qilian Mountains. It is adjacent to the Gansu Hexi Corridor in the north of the ancient Silk Road. Therefore, it is also known as the North Gate of Qinghai.
Qilian County usually has a lot of tourists, and the whole small town is extraordinarily quiet, like a paradise.
The biggest surprise for the trip to Qilian County was that when the window of the hotel room was opened early in the morning, it turned out to be a "fairy world" in silver.
I quickly walked out of the hotel room and wanted to be in such a rare scene. After all, in a place like a paradise, even the snow scene has another kind of indescribable look.
All the branches on the outside are covered with hoarfrost, and the Tibetan colored blessing stones are particularly bright in the white snow.
Danxia landforms unique red rock with white snow cover, how can you not be surprised to see at a glance? This is the magical work of nature, especially in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau of Dashan Dachuan.
Looking forward, white, I walked along the Babao River, almost no one passed by, as if you suddenly owned a whole world.
