穿白衬衣的薄荷星In Qinghai, photographed many times the Milky Way, the water Yadan this night was very impressive. After the night, dark, the surrounding landscape strange, the Milky Way is scattered on the Yadan group. The wind is too strong, it is difficult to light and wave every time, although several people still enjoy shooting in the early morning. The water of the day Yadan is equally spectacular, the lake or deep blue or green, standing high and not the end. I have to lament the vastness of China, mountains, lakes and seas, all magnificent. ☑️ Traffic Raider Usute Water Yadan Geopark is located in Haixi, Qinghai Province, about 2 hours drive from Dachaidan, will pass Dongtai Jinel Lake and G315U type highway (please don't take pictures on the highway).

AURURA木木For the moment, there is no ticket fee, only a 100 yuan battery car. The phone on Trip.com is wrong. I took a photo at the gate of the scenic spot with contact information. If you need it, you can consult the scenic policy.

穿白衬衣的薄荷星Dongtai Jine'er Lake is a small Maldives in Qinghai, the lake is too big to see the end, clear to see the bottom. White salt flats in the sun, beautiful I can't believe. At present, the scenic area is still being built, the tourists are not particularly large, and a walk in can find the lake without interruption. Personally, I think it is better than the jade lake, which is already overcrowded. However, the visual will soon be very hot, so everyone must go to ~🔹 photo strategy 🔹 the lake is large, and there is no need to squeeze in the crowded place near the entrance. It is very quiet to walk deep. It is recommended to take aerial photographs with drones. 🔹Warm Tips 🔹The salt flat is very hard, relatively lame, you will need to splash water when you go to a place with fewer people, and try to bring a lightweight slipper. 🔹Traffic Raider 🔹Lake is located in Haixi, Qinghai, on the road from Dachaidan to Yadan on the water. Navigation and search for Dongtai Jineer Lake.

Snow Mountain
酒仙老周I have to say that the road on the Qinghai-Tibet Highway is really broken! Or it is really not suitable for family sedan driving! It took one night to travel through Hoh Xil! Then there is the indomitable Tanggula Pass! The highest peak of the Qinghai-Tibet Highway! The feeling of high reflection like a shadow! Just like a severe cold patient! Even so! The plateau is still longing for and challenging! [Scenery] [Interesting] [Cost-effective]
