E34***63One of the largest salt lakes in China. This is quite a spectacular sight. It's also known as mirror lake. The picture opportunities are superb with the endless lake and sky in front of you. You can get a small sightseeing train (50RMB) or you can walk around. You can also rent some rubber boots to walk into the salt lake (10RMB). This is a fun experience. Located in Caka area a few hours outside of Xining.
E34***63Note 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

Qinghai Lake, in the northeast part of the province, is the largest inland saltwater lake in China. Both the Mongolian name and the Tibetan name mean 'Blue Lake'. In spring you can see a lot of birds, gulls, swans, and wild ducks. May through October is the best time for bird-watching.
🚌 How to get there?
🚗 Private car - These can be hired from a travel agent for ¥400. If you drive by yourself, it's a little cheaper.
👨👩👧👦 Tour - A number of companies in town offer trips to the lake. Prices start at around ¥100, which doesn't include entrance fees, as the tours usually don't go to free spots.
🚌 Public Bus - Most westbound buses from the Xining long distance bus station pass by the lake. Just buy a ticket and tell the driver you want to get off at the lake.
Remember that the lake is huge and maybe decide, where you wanna go. We didn't do that and just drive around, if you have time it's also a good way.
🏨 Wanna sleep there? Many simple hotels and guesthouses around the lake!
On 15th May we arrived to Xining airport by China southern airline.There are so many luxurious hotels and a lot of restaurants with the local speciality,available nearby the Xining railway station.The most attractive tourist spot in Qinghai includes the muslim mosques and muslim street of Xining city,the Qinghai lake,the salt lake and the Da er si temples.
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. ⠀

Main point of view
Qinghai Lake has many scenic spots along the road, but you have to collect a lot of tickets. Underneath Amway does not need to charge or charge a very low cost place or watch
Look: between Xihai Town and Jiangxi Valley, there will be a desert of Jinsha Bay, the combination of sand and sea, sometimes comparable to the scenery of Namibia.
On the first day of Qinghaihai
Qinghai travel, the weather was not as expected, but from Xining all the way to the tea card, the road trip became a dream of lakes and yellow flowers, the most beautiful scenery on the road~ .
The cattle and sheep along the way will sing, and the beautiful singing will accompany us to the next and next destination.
This is Qinghai in my dream~

What is the northwest of your heart like?
Many people said that they have not been to the northwest and do not know how big China is. In the northwest, you are equivalent to meeting most of China, walking through the grasslands, crossing the desert, driving through the Gobi, and looking at Xuefeng. All the fantasies about the northwest, a complete loop, covering the most classic scenery...
ps: The northwest is sparsely populated, suitable for self-driving and bag/carpooling. We have considered it for a long time, if we go by car Unfamiliar life, easy to open the wrong way, and driving is a tired, exhausted in six days, and finally decided to find a local driver master to take us more reliable, if you happen to go to the northwest I can personally trust me to know the information of the master. I can quote my name for a discount. The key is
is limited. The following highlights are some of the attractions:

Elevation Emerald Lake at an altitude of more than 3,000 meters. Come here to bring a drone, and look at it from the perspective of God. It is simply a jade embedded in the earth. It is still free.
It is located on the northeastern edge of the Qaidam Basin in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. An undeveloped attraction is very suitable for taking photos of the western blockage
movie The floor of the demon tower is full of broken buildings and abandoned facilities. Unexpectedly, it is a photographing holy place!
is suitable for watching the sunset in the evening. It has always been incompatible with water and fire, and it is difficult for desert springs to coexist. But in Mingsha Mountain, you can see the wonders of the desert and the clear spring. Rough, a tender feeling, depending on each other
In addition, Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, Jiayuguan, Zhangye Colorful Danxia, Biandukou, and Menyuan are worth seeing. I cant write it anymore. I like the little fairy to remember the collection.
Every July, the rape blossoms of Qinghai Lake, the yellow rapeseed in the mountains and the blue sky and white clouds, all picturesque. You only have to be here to feel its beauty. The rapeseed here is relatively short, not used for cooking oil, mainly for planting as a tourist, and its ornamental value is greater than the edible value. This year is the most beautiful season in Qinghai Lake. The rapeseed flower clusters around the lake are all open, golden everywhere, and the natural blue and rapeseed flowers are in sharp contrast. One shot is a big piece.
Do you believe that such clear water comes from the Yellow River?

7, August Qinghai Lake rape blossoms are like a painting. After the rain, the mountains of Qinghai Lake are haunted by clouds, and the beautiful Qinghai Lake is indescribable, and it is really suitable for cycling. Continue to ride along the lake for a while. There are mountains and fog on the road around the lake. There are flowers and grass, horses and sheep, and even reindeer and planes! It seems that it is specially used for tourists to take pictures... It also makes me continually take pictures and linger.
July Zhongmenyuan canola flower bloom is the most beautiful season, but it is also the most prosperous season, and it is not good enough to have too many accommodations in summer.
August, the source of flowers is thankful, but the flowers of Qinghai Lake are open until the end of the month, especially after the 20th, the flow of people is reduced.
[Lake the lake way]
Compared with the trouble of self-driving parking, the bus guide-style walking, especially the blockage caused by the traffic jam in the peak season, it is recommended to ride here freely, you can follow the beat. Only have different play experiences and more travel and shooting fun.
There is a special bicycle riding path by the lake. You can rent a Haro, step on the bicycle to exercise, and use the power mode when you are tired. If you don't want to ride a lock, you can return it.
