In summer, Qinghai, yellow and blue are accompanied, so beautiful, no matter how many languages are pale. After leaving Xining to Qilian and Menyuan, the first stop is Huangyuan Gorge. Xining→Huangyuan Gorge→Jinyintan Prairie→Gangcha→Caka Salt Lake→Bird Island→151 Base→Guide→Xining, this is an absolutely classic self-driving route with few tourists and great scenery. Huangyuan, the prosperous Haizang Throat, the combination of farming culture and grassland culture, is also an element of the Tangbo Ancient Road and the Silk South Road. Huangyuan Gorge, especially the petroglyphs and stone carvings carved on the cliffs, made the past guests unavoidably abandon their cars and stop to watch. Huangyuan Gorge is not long, but one scene at a time. In addition to historical sites such as Folya, Crescent Bay, Shiyazhuang, and Beigucheng, the green hills and strange rocks and Linhai Ticui are the most fascinating sights. Passing through the gorge in summer, one side is the forest trees swaying green, the other side is the green grass and strange rocks, and the mountain stream is clear water, especially in the narrow valleys on both sides of the Qinghai-Tibet government, wheat, rape, broad beans and other crops are in the forest net. The fields are growing well. When the car drove into Huangyuan County, it passed through the extremely long Huangyuan Canyon, all the way to Riyue Mountain. There are mountains and rivers in the gorge. Even if there are no rape blossoms or flocks of migratory birds, it is worth visiting all the way. Whether you are cycling or driving, the peerless scenery along the way will make you intoxicated.
The car crosses the bridge and enters the territory of Huangyuan County, and then passes through a 55-kilometer-long gorge (to Riyue Mountain). It has high mountains, long waters, steep slopes, and dangerous terrain. It has been known as "the throat of the sea" since ancient times. On both sides of the gorge, there are mountains and hills with Cuiwei, bee-hills, mountains facing each other, and there are thousands of cliffs. On the rolling mountains, the sea of woods is long, Wan Mukun stomped. Huangyuan County is located at the junction of the Hai-Tibet Pass and the agricultural and pastoral areas in Qinghai Province. The old county town was once a gathering place for tea-horse exchanges and daily groceries. It played an important role in connecting Tibet with the mainland, strengthening the relationship between the Han, Tibetan, Hui, and Mongolian people, and prospering the agriculture and animal husbandry economy. During the Jiaqing and Daoguang periods of the Qing Dynasty, trade was the most prosperous period. Merchants gathered, foreign goods arrived, camel bells, and the sound of cows were extremely lively. It was known as the "Little Beijing" of Qinghai Plateau.
