Departing from Zhangye, passing Biandukou to Qilian Prairie, snow-capped mountains in the distance, and flocks of cattle and sheep near by the beautiful water and grass. When encountering a large sea of flowers, many flower farmers were picking flowers with woven bags, and they went to inquire. It turned out that these flowers were sent to factories to refine essential oils. It turned out that this was a villagers' wealth project initiated by the local government.
In fact, in addition to Zhuoer Mountain, Qilian has a very good attraction, Bayi Glacier. The road to Bayi Glacier was quite difficult to walk, but it has been repaired this year. Although the distance is relatively long, it takes 400 kilometers to go back and forth. Stay one more night in Qilian. Leave a little regret, and make it up next time. After breakfast in the morning, I will continue on the road. Today's itinerary is very simple, that is, rush to Zhangye to see the colorful Danxia sunset. The road conditions are also national highways, and it is the 227 national highway, which is known as one of the most beautiful highways in China, so you can enjoy it slowly today. After passing Ebao, I began to climb the mountain. This time I am going to pass the Oboling Pass. The altitude is 3685 meters and the road after going down the mountain is a little harder. This section of the road was crossed by floods earlier this year. But it has been repaired now, although the road conditions are average, but fortunately it is not very long. I arrived at Biandukou when I was preparing for noon. This is the boundary between Qinghai and Gansu. After Biandukou, I entered Gansu. There is a rest station in Biandukou where you can take a break. We arrived at the right time. There were large tracts of highland barley that had not been harvested yet, so we went to the fields to take pictures enthusiastically. Some fresh highland barley can be eaten by peeling its shells. After Biandukou, there are many flower fields on both sides of the road, such as marigolds, and of course cosmos is indispensable. Some flower fields have a lot of flowers, so they are enclosed and charged. It is 5 yuan per person, and we also went in to take pictures. With such beautiful scenery, it is worth spending a small amount of money.
The Biandukou Ecological Recreation Tourist Zone has a nice view and pleasant scenery. A large area of rape blossoms is in full bloom. It is beautiful and interesting. I can't help but stop and watch it. It is a good choice, and the price is very high.
Biandukou is more than 3,500 meters above sea level, and the ancient Silk Road South Road crosses the Hexi from Qinghai and enters the Western Regions. Today it is an eco-tourism area.
A gap in the Qilian Mountains has been the only place to pass through the Hehuang area to the Hexi Corridor for thousands of years. The mountains are surrounded by mountains, the snow-capped mountains are environmentally friendly, and there are large natural pastures with beautiful natural scenery.
