What people are saying:

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.

Additional Information

Introduction

Huangyuan Gorge is located in the middle section of the Qinghai–Tibet Highway. The Huangshui River runs from the northwest to the southeast diagonally through the northern part of Huangyuan County, while a tributary of the Yaoshui River runs from the south to the north, where the two rivers divide Huangyuan Gorge into a narrow valley basin in the shape of the character "ding" (丁), forming the "three gorges" of Xishi Gorge, Bayan Gorge and ​​Yaoshui Gorge. Mountains line up on both sides of the Huangyuan Gorge. Characterized by dangerous terrain, it has been known as the "throat between Qinghai and Tibet" since the olden days.
