What people are saying:

Chaerhan Salt Lake is the second largest salt lake in the world. In the industrial mining area, although the tea card is 50 times larger, it is not as well known as the tea card. There are Wanzhang Salt Bridge and Qiandao Salt Flower! 🚕About 50 kilometers away from downtown Golmud🚘By self-driving or chartered car, follow the navigation to drive for about 1 hour to the tourist service center,🎫Tickets are free, but you need to buy a sightseeing ticket, 100 yuan/person, the bus goes to the entrance of the factory, and walks through the salt Bridge, parked at Qiandao Salt Flower, 2 locations at the central pier, you can get off the bus and tour⏱Visit time: about 3 hours☁The film can only be released if the weather is good, so the weather is very important
