Qinghai Lake Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
Located in northeast Qinghai Province, 150 kilometers from Xining, Qinghai Lake covers an area of 4,500 square kilometers, 3,200 meters above sea level.

Qinghai Lake is somewhat surreal-looking saline lake west of Xining. The huge lake(more like an inland sea) has often served as the symbolic midway point between Tibet and Mongolian. It was here in 1578 that the Mongolian leader Altan Khan conferred upon Sonam Gyasto(then head of the Geligpa sect) the title of Dalai Lama.

Features
It is the largest inland salt lake in China, and it is famous for lapidates, fresh, tender, which grows 500 grams 10 years. In summer time, flowers blossom along the lakeside inhabited by the Tibetans.
