顺时针1986Zhuoer Mountain has the reputation of being one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in the west. It is definitely a must-see for Qilian. On the first night to Qilian County, Haibei Prefecture, Qinghai, we lived at the foot of Zhuoer Mountain. When I arrived the day before, I went to Zhuoer Mountain to take a photo of the sunset. The next morning I went to Zhuoer Mountain for a panoramic tour, which was super cool. Zhuoer Mountain belongs to the Danxia landform, composed of red sandstone and conglomerate. Zhuoer Mountain is the best place for mountaineering to look far away and bird's eye view of Qilian County. The scenic area is composed of two parts: Zhuoer Mountain Forest Park at the foot of the mountain and Zhuoer Mountain Observation Deck at the top of the mountain. The tourism development is very mature. The dining and shopping service center, transfer service station and rest corridor, parking lot and small square are all Very complete, you don’t have to worry about parking when you come by car. Tickets for Zhuoer Mountain are 60 yuan, including internal transportation vehicles, but you must hurry up to Zhuoer Mountain. After 8 o'clock, there will be a long queue of cars going up the mountain. The view from the top of the mountain is extremely wide without any obstruction. On the opposite side of the mountain is Niuxin Mountain, and on the back is the rolling Qilian Mountains. The view is super good and it is also very suitable for taking pictures.

Going along the G227 National Highway to Gangcha County in Qinghai Province, when driving over Oboling Pass, there are towering mountains on both sides, and the road ahead looks like the end of the road, but when you turn around, there is a strange scenery. After a few turns, a large grassland appeared in front of him. Against the backdrop of the snow-capped mountains in the distance, the waves were magnificent, that is, the Qilian Mountain grassland. The Qilian Mountain grassland is one of the six most beautiful grasslands in my country. It is located in the Qilian Mountain range at the junction of Qinghai and Gansu. It is a high-altitude grassland. Although Tiangong is not beautiful enough, it can be imagined that the summer Qilian Mountain grassland, white clouds, cattle and sheep, snow mountains, herders and smoking tents constitute its beautiful picture. Driving on the road across the grassland, the sky is vast and vast, watching the herds of cattle and sheep on the mountains and grasslands, you can only sigh the magic of nature's creation! The clear waters of the Qilian Mountains are picturesque, the sky is high and the clouds are pale and the summer is like spring, the towering snow peaks hold up the white Hada, and the vast grassland spreads a thousand miles of green blankets, letting the feelings of Qilian Mountains be hidden in everyone's heart. The beauty of Qilian lies in the beautiful mountains and clear waters, and even more beautiful in the clouds and mists of Qifeng, "The evening rain and the clouds return in a few days, like silk as wet.

顺时针1986We drove to Qilian County all the way to see Niuxin Mountain. Niuxin Mountain is located on the south side of Qilian County in Qinghai Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, 2 kilometers southeast of Babao Town, the county seat. It is a symbol of Qilian and a masterpiece of mountain orogeny. Named because of the shape of a cow's heart. As a symbol of Qilian, Niuxin Mountain stands like a barrier beside Qilian County, protecting this small city together with Zhuoer Mountain and Babao River. Niuxin Mountain is 4,667 meters above sea level. The top of Niuxin Mountain is covered with snow all the year round, the slopes are tall and tall, the grass under the mountain, rape blossoms fragrant, the levels are distinct, comparable to Mount Fuji, the bottom of the hill is rolling with the waves of wheat and the fragrance of rape blossoms, a farm scene in the plateau valley , Upward green grass is an excellent pasture, known as "good pasture under Qilian Mountains". The process of climbing Niuxin Mountain only takes 2 hours, and you can clearly see the north and south Qilian mountains from the mountainside. The best location for viewing Niuxin Mountain is in Zhuoershan Scenic Area. Especially at sunrise and sunset, the most interesting thing is that the large areas of rapeseed under the mountain are unfamiliar along the Qinghai Lake. In the eyes of the locals, Niuxin Mountain is the mountain of Qilian, and Zhuoer Mountain is a pair of affectionate lovers, waiting silently on the banks of the Babao River, jointly protecting the mountains and rivers of Qilian. Qilian County is very convenient for accommodation. There are good hotels. In addition to local halal restaurants, there are also some Sichuan restaurants. The local yogurt is made with yak milk. The quality is very good. You can arrive in Qilian County one day in advance to see the sunrise and sunset. It is the most beautiful time here.

顺时针1986On the afternoon of the second day around Qinghai Lake, we arrived at the Dadongshu Mountain Pass, located on Provincial Highway 204 from Qilian County, Haibei City to Qinghai Lake, at an altitude of 4120 meters, which is the highest point in the trips of most travel friends on the Sichuan-Tibet line. . This section of the road is good and flat, but the speed limit is specified (60-80 kilometers per hour), and there are fixed and mobile speed measurement points. This is the dividing line between Kunlun Mountain and Qilian Mountain Pass. The average person has a mild altitude sickness here, but I am fine, basically there is no problem. There is also a rest station here, erected with a large number of 4,120, four people here are endless, and it is very difficult to take a panoramic view. Tourists can get off the car to enjoy the scenery, rest and prepare for the future trip. But don't exercise vigorously, after all, at such a high altitude, there are also oxygen cylinders for sale. There are small vendors selling some souvenirs here, but many people watch them. There are many five-color prayer flags fluttering in the wind: blue flags symbolize the blue sky; white flags symbolize white clouds; red flags symbolize flame; green flags symbolize green water; yellow flags symbolize the loess land. The five colors together symbolize the five phenomena in the natural world. Hanging prayer flags is to pray for good luck and prosperity and eliminate disasters.
