翼儿爱自由Rape flowers everywhere, but the source of the Qinghai Menyuan rape flower is more spectacular. Menyuan, located in Qinghai Province, Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Every summer season, the full range of the mountain rape flowers, covered the whole hillside, plain, the scene is very spectacular! The canola flower mountain is set against the blue sky and white clouds, the endless golden yellow looks unusual, the simple composition of the large colors give rich imagination.

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.
On our North-West-China Roadtrip we drove back to Xining on our last day. On our way we discovered this beautiful oilseed rape flower field. The colours together with the mountains and mountain villages look stunning. Local farmers sell fresh and tasty honey.
🏴 How to get here? You can drive by car or take a bus and train to MenYuan station (门源站). It's a 2-3 hours drive from Qinghais capital Xining.
🍂 When to go? I recommend May-September. The weather is nice and daytime temperature is warm. The sunset is especially nice!
🎟️ There is a scenic spot called 百里油菜花景区. It's not necessary to go there, you have more or less the same view anywhere else. If you want some infrastructure, the scenic spot might be better!
Had the good fortune to do a self-driving tour through Central Gansu Province and Northern Qinghai Province. If you’re in China for a while and have a foreign driver’s license, you can apply for a Chinese one. It requires jumping through some annoying hoops but then you can rent a car when you travel. We drove up to Qilian Mountain in Qinghai and to the famous 4120m Large Winter Tree pass. It was a very fun experience!
🏔 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.

ZHUO’ER MOUNTAIN SCENIC:
It is part of Qilian mountain range in the North east of China.I visited in August which is the best time to visit this place since you can see the beautiful yellow rape flower fields mixed with layers of lush green. If you go there before June there's no flower fields, it will be bare.Not a place for lazy people like me because of mountain climbing and moving around.you should bring an extra jacket if you want hiking its usually cold at the top.Overallu its not a huge scenic area, thereby less crowds also compared to other sites in the area.i recommend you to visit this place especially July or August.
Qilian Mountain Grassland
It is in Gansu and Qinghai provinces.Its a very magnificent mountain which means heavenly mountain.At the foot of Qilian Mountain lies it’s Grassland. Benefited from the good weather and favorable natural resources from Qilian Mountain, the grassland is developed into a wonderland for nomads and tourists with its fabulous scenery. Depending on the time of visit you can expect a dynamic green scroll adorned with lush grass, blossoming flowers, roaming flocks of cattle, horses, and sheep. I highly recommend this place to nature lovers for us a few minutes after arriving we sent to play on grassland and it rained we were forced to stay in a car until it stopped raining .When the rain stopped the rainbow with visible seven colours came out.
Yuan County is a county in Hainan Prefecture, Qinghai Province, which is famous for the size of the largest small-seed rape flower in the north. Therefore, when people talk about Menyuan County, they probably dont know where the source is and what it is. However, it is known that the door source rapeseed is very famous, so many tourists come to the door to see the rape. It seems that the northern rapeseed base is the representative and signboard of Menyuan County.
rapeseed is not unusual, there are everywhere, but the door source of rape blossoms is spectacular, north to Qilian Mountain, west from Yongan City, east to Yulong Beach, south to Dagu Mountain, stretching for hundreds of kilometers, like golden The sea. The rich yellow flowers, along the banks of the Haomen River, are hundreds of kilometers across the Menyuan Basin. Under the deep blue sky of the plateau, the mountains and the mountains are close to the water.
Arou Da Temple, a little-known ancient temple located in Qilian County, Qinghai. It is the largest and most influential Gelugpa monastery in Qilian County.
Temple, at first it was the account house temple. Because it is a monastery of the Arou tribe, due to the influence of nomadic life, a special architectural pattern is formed, and there is no fixed position following the tribe.
This temple is very quiet, between the alpine meadows, it is very peaceful.
Arou Township, 21 km east of Qinglian County, Qinghai, has a Tibetan Buddhist temple facing south. It is a famous Gelugpa monastery. It was built in the Qing Dynasty and was founded by Tibetan nomadic tribes. The Arou tribe was built. At first, because the herdsmen were nomadic, the Aru Da Temple did not have a fixed temple, but was relocated as a rare tent temple with the herdsmen. It was not until the eve of 1946 that it settled at the present site. The temples of Tibetan Buddhism are generally rich in Tibetan style, while the Aru Da Temple is based on the traditional Tibetan style and incorporates the architectural style of Chinese style, which is a combination of Tibetan and Chinese architectural art. The green grassland around the temple is undulating, and the majestic Qilian Mountains in the distance are magnificent, and the combination of Tibetan and Chinese, with distinctive temple architecture, is even more magnificent.
