Many travelers touring Qinghai Lake make a point of coming here. Salt has been harvested from Chaka Salt Lake for over 3000 years. The lake has a high salt content that naturally crystallizes to form a white layer over its surface that reflects the sky, clouds, and mountains on the opposite bank.

Damei Qinghai self-driving route recommended! Qinghai--China's representative place Qinghai is separated from Sichuan by only one mountain, and Mianyang, but one thousand kilometers. There are mountains surrounded by blue waters, Qinghai Lake, and Lingshan Holy Water Cambra. Route 1: XiningMenyuanQilian smeared with a piece of green, and its golden color it is an energetic and vibrant romantic declaration . Under the deep blue sky of the plateau, the rich yellow flowers stretch for nearly 100 kilometers, like the golden sea. It shows the domineering of rapeseed flowers in the northern region under the blue sky, white clouds and snow-capped mountains... You can follow the 227 national road to the Russian Fort and then divide the road to the west to the big road, passing the imperial city grassland and the Aru grassland. . All the way from the source of the door, all the way is full of endless grassland and cattle and sheep, and then to the back, will feel the mountain suddenly increased, at first glance, a beautiful scenery in the mountains. A few kilometers along the mountain road is the Zall Mountain. You will see the mountains on both sides and the mountains in the distance. At this time, the eyes are not enough. The wheat fields, rape fields and Yadan landforms. The scenery of pine forests, snow mountains and grasslands surrounds you. Step by step, each angle is beautiful, and each angle is a perfect postcard. Route 2: Guide-Lajishan-Tal Temple took out Xining, driving south for several tens of kilometers to the foot of Lajishan. Not far from the hills, the five-color prayer flags fluttered in the wind, climbed up to take pictures, and later learned that Tibetans generally hang on the mountains, intersections, lakes or roofs to pray. It is said that the longer the connection between the warriors and the shackles, the higher the hang, the better the luck, which is why they choose the snow-capped mountains. When you reach the foot of the mountain, the right hand side is a compelling green, and the left hand side is a dazzling Danxia landform that is not pleasing in the grass in the afternoon sun. A crisscrossed, fine layered layer. The first time I saw the clear green green river, the trip was worth again. The statement that a basin of river water and half basin mud does not apply in Guide. If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe that there would be such a clear and clear Yellow River water anyway. , the birthplace of Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. A row of eight treasures like the tower, the size of the Jinwa Temple, is an iconic building. The Ta'er Monastery has three musts: murals, piles of embroidered, butter flowers.

Qinghai Lake is the largest inland lake in China and a saltwater lake. The area of the lake is 4,456 square kilometers and the circumference of the lake is more than 360 kilometers. It is precisely because the area is too large, the spots are scattered, and there is basically no public transportation, so the best way to play is to drive by yourself, stop and go, see the right scenery and get off at leisure, leisurely. Qinghai Lake self-driving tour, accompanied by beautiful scenery, from time to time there are rape blossoms appearing outside the car window, very beautiful. Different from the rape blossoms elsewhere, the yellow flower sea of Qinghai Lake and the endless blue lake water are against each other, which is extraordinarily magnificent, as well as the colorful enamel and white yak, as well as the rolling Qilian Mountains, the white snow mountains and gold. The contrast of the yellow flowers is definitely different from those of ordinary flowers. Qinghai Lake Because of the large area of the lake and the long coastline of the lake, when you travel around the lake, you definitely need accommodation. We lived in a hotel near the Heima River on this day. It is very close to the lake, enjoying the sunset in the evening, and watching the sunrise early in the morning. At sunset, the sun has just disappeared on the horizon, the sunset has not faded into the fascinating colors, the big moon has risen high in the sky, and the horses alone on the grass have formed a good time together. Beautiful picture.
