    Super nice!

    We had a two days roadtrip from Xining to Qingahai Lake and Chaka Salt Lake and made a stop here on the way. It is a beautiful place to take photos. We stopped here for 40 min.

Additional Information

Introduction

The famous Riyue Mountains is between Xiningi City and Qinghai Lake. There is a time-honored beautiful story: when Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty entered Tibet, she broke her beloved stone mirror here. The stone mirror was divided into two parts, the sun and the moon, which later became this Riyue Mountains (Sun and Moon Mountains) Today, on both sides of the Riyue Mountains, there is a small mountain peak, and two landmark buildings, Ri Pavilion and Yue Pavilion, are built on them.
