Qinghai

Qinghai Province, also called “Qing” for short, is located in the northeastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Both the Yangtze River and the Yellow River originate from Qinghai, where there is China’s largest inland plateau lagoon, hence its name “Qinghai Province”. Qinghai has a diverse terrain with towering mountains, crossing rivers and lakes.
With vast undulating grasslands cropping up and the grand Qaidam Basin in the northwest, Qinghai borders Tanggula Mountain in the south and Qilian Mountain in the north as the magnificent Kunlun Mountain runs across it.  For visitors traveling to West China including cities in Xinjiang, Tibet, Dunhuang or Lhasa, Qinghai is a must-see stop.
Though most of the land in Qinghai are uninhabitable deserts and snow mountains, Qinghai still remains a paradise for hikers and brave challengers with abundant humanistic and geographical resources.
