E34***63E34***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***63E34***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

中西南北东中西南北东First, you need to know a few names, or it will be confused. In the 1950s, gold and silver beach grassland built a nuclear base, here became the cradle of China's nuclear weapons, because of its size, so called the atomic city. After the reform and opening, here declassified to local governments, so there is a formal place name, Weiqinghai Haibei Haitang County Xihai Town. The location of the video is the central location of the Jinyintan grassland, you can see the grassland around the mountains, atomic city's second factory is located here. The first atomic bomb in China was loaded here on a train to Lobopo...
