Location Information

Xining (meaning "western peace") - is the only big city in Qinghai and is the capital of the province. It is located at the northeast of the province. Xining is a long established Chinese city and a main stop on the ancient Silk Road trade route. It features nearby attractions like the Ta'er Lamasery and Qinghai Lake. Built in the 14th century, Taer is a center for Yellow Hat Lamism - Buddhist followers of the Dalai Lama. In the Islamic realm, Xining's Dongguan Mosque, founded in 1380, is the largest in the region.

About 130 kilometers from Xining is Qinghai Lake, China's largest inland saltwater body. Rumor has it that dinosaurs were seen around the lake, but only fish, fowl and human sightings were confirmed. Bird Island sanctuary is another provincial attraction, featuring migrating geese.

Famous for its huge grassy plains, Qinghai Province is also known as the Green Sea. The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers have their sources here. And the world's highest highway runs through the Qinghai to Lhasa, Tibet. Along the way, you can see antelope, yak, donkeys, camels and lynx.
