Chaka Salt Lake is located on the west side of Qinghai Lake in Chaka Town, Wulan County. It is approximately 80 kilometers from Heimahe Township on the coast of Qinghai Lake. Many travelers touring Qinghai Lake make a point of coming here. Salt has been harvested from Chaka Salt Lake for over 3000 years. The lake has a high salt content that naturally crystallizes to form a white layer over its surface that reflects the sky, clouds, and mountains on the opposite bank. Guests can even walk barefoot onto the lake's surface to view and photograph their own reflections.
