We went to Riyueshan on the morning of our first day around Qinghai Lake. It is a scenic spot that people look forward to and miss very much. Located in the west of Huangyuan County, it belongs to the Qilian Mountains. The most famous one is that Princess Wencheng once went to Tubo and his relatives via Riyueshan Mountain. Now there is a Princess Wencheng Temple at the foot of Riyueshan Mountain. Riyueshan is now the dividing line between farming and pastoral areas in Qinghai Province. When climbing the peak, you can see the winding waters of Huangshui River and the magnificent Qinghai Lake. Riyueshan is 40 km away from Huangyuan County Town and about 100 km away from Xining. Generally, it is a carpooling trip. The fare of 150 yuan per person per day is basically the price around Qinghai Lake. Tai-low and Tai-high should be carefully considered. Tieba bar on Qinghai Lake and Qinghai Travel in Xining are everywhere. Car charterer telephone. Following the group generally have this scenic spot, Riyueshan into the scenic spot to charge 40 yuan a person, I suggest not to go in, after the Riyueshan when taking pictures on the mountainside. There are two pavilions in the scenic area, the Riting Pavilion and the Moon Pavilion. They are very common antique buildings. The services of riding yaks and taking photos of Tibetan clothes in the scenic area are paid separately. The endless grasslands, cattle, sheep, steeds and horses and tent spots can be seen on the outer edge of the scenic area. And this side is really too sunny, and there is no shelter. If the sun on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau does not do protection, skin sunburn in the past few days is very normal.
In today's Qinghai plateau, there is a mountain called Riyue Mountain. There is a beautiful legend about the origin of this mountain. It is said that Princess Wencheng would leave Chang'an and marry Tubo far away. Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty made a golden mirror for Princess Wencheng, the Sun-Moon mirror. The mirror is said to shine on the rivers and mountains of the Central Plains for the princess's homesickness. When Princess Wencheng's team came to the Tang-Fan junction, she looked west, but saw the grassland empty, no trace of people; took out the treasure mirror to the east, Chang'an City was full of flowers, but tears fell unconsciously. But thinking of Tang Dynasty and the overall situation of the friendship between Tibet and Tibet, she stepped into the border of Tubo and threw away the mirror of sun and moon. As the precious mirror "clattering" landed, there were two hills rising slowly. Later generations call these two mountains "Sun Moon Mountain".
Riyueshan is located 40 kilometers southwest of Huangyuan County, Qinghai Province. It is a natural dam in the eastern part of Qinghai Lake. It is 90 kilometers long and has an elevation of 4877 meters. The Riyueshan Pass through Qinghai-Tibet Highway is 3520 meters above sea level. Riyueshan is not only of great historical significance, but also of great geographical significance. It is located on the boundary between monsoon and non-monsoon areas in China, and in the overlapping area of the Loess Plateau and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is the natural boundary between the inner and outer watersheds of Qinghai Province. It divides farming civilization and nomadic civilization. At an average altitude of about 4000 meters, the Tibetan name Riyueshan is Nimadawa, and the Mongolian name Narasala means the sun and the moon. It is said that when Princess Wencheng entered Tibet, some of her followers were not well enough to stay and settle in this place, leaving ruins. The ticket is 40. You can enjoy the scenery and feel the historic sites, but you can also see them under the mountains. Yaks can ride in the scenic spot. Yaks are clean. Ten can ride and take photos.
Riyueshan was named Chiling in the early Tang Dynasty. Located in the southwest of Huangyuan County, southeast of Qinghai Lake, at an altitude of 3520 meters, it is a necessary place for visitors to enter the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, so it is called "West Sea Screen", "Grassland Portal". It is said that Princess Wencheng went to Tibet by this mountain. She carried a treasure mirror and climbed the peak eastward. She did not see her hometown of Chang'an. From her heart of sorrow, she fell to the ground under an empty mirror. One part was divided into two parts, the other half into golden days and the other half into silver months. The sun and the moon reflected each other and illuminated the journey to the west. It served as a transit station for the exchange of materials and the exchange of envoys between the Tang Dynasty and Tubo. At present, there are still three-character blue stone tablets on the mountain pass "Sun Moon Mountain" with the sun Pavilion and moon Pavilion overlooking each other at the top of the mountain, and a unique backward flowing river at the foot of the South mountain. Although Riyueshan has no precipitous cliffs and magnificent peaks, it also has magnificent demeanor and magnificent momentum. You can also get a view of the beautiful scenery around you. Okay, let's stop telling stories and get a picture of the scenery.
Riyueshan is the place where Princess Wencheng left beautiful legends when she went into Tibet. When Princess Wencheng came into Tibet, King Tang gave her a golden mirror, telling her that if she missed her home, she could see her hometown and family in the mirror. When Princess Wencheng went to the present Riyueshan, she took out the mirror because she missed her relatives, but the princess did not see the relatives she missed day and night, but saw herself haggard. Face, so Princess Wencheng angrily fell the mirror into two halves, forming the present Sun Moon Mountain. In order to commemorate Princess Wencheng, later generations built the present Sun Pavilion and Moon Pavilion! ___________
The fact that Princess Wencheng stayed in Chiling for a short time left a good memory for the people of Han and Tibet. So far, Qinghai people have heard such stories. When Princess Wencheng went to Chiling, she would leave the land under the jurisdiction of the Tang Dynasty, and her heart was full of sorrow. Looking forward to Tubo, the sky is high and cloudy, the grassland is vast; looking back to Chang'an, more nostalgic for the native land. Then she took out the "Mirror of the Sun and Moon" given by the Queen and looked after the scenery and relatives of Chang'an. She couldn't help crying. Tears of homesickness merged into the upside-down River and flowed into Qinghai Lake from east to west. But when she thought of the important task of the marriage between Tang and Tuo, she decisively broke the "Mirror of Sun and Moon", cut off her attachment to her relatives, made up her mind to go ahead resolutely, and went westward without hesitation. Since then, Chiling has been renamed "Riyueshan"
Riyueshan, the famous Chiling Mountain in the early Tang Dynasty, is located in the southwest of Huangyuan County, at an altitude of 3520 meters. It is a necessary place for visitors to enter the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Therefore, it is called "Xihai Screen", "Grassland Gate". It is said that Princess Wencheng went to Tibet by this mountain. She carried a sunglass and climbed the peak eastward. She did not see her hometown of Chang'an. She began to feel sad and fell to the ground under an empty mirror. One part was divided into two parts, the other half into golden days and the other half into silver months. The sun and the moon reflected each other, forming the Sun and Moon Mountains, which illuminated the journey to the west. At present, there are still three-character blue stone tablets on the mountain pass "Sun Moon Mountain" with the sun Pavilion and moon Pavilion overlooking each other at the top of the mountain, and a unique backward flowing river at the foot of the South mountain. The sky is blue, the clouds are green, and this is very Qinghai.

Riyue Mountain, named for the Sun Pavilion and the Moon Pavilion on the mountain, was once used by Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty when she entered Tibet. Riyueshan is located 40 kilometers southwest of Huangyuan County, Qinghai Province, with an average altitude of about 4000 meters. It is called Nimadawa in Tibetan and Narasala in Mongolian, which means the sun and the moon. Yaks and colorful flags are generally seen in Tibetan areas. They are very beautiful.
Riyueshan Scenic Area is very large. You should be very careful when you go by bus. The highway around the mountain is not easy to drive. Because of the high altitude, it is easy to produce high altitude response. There are oxygen tanks on the hill. Measures must be taken to strengthen ultraviolet radiation
