Home to a nature reserve featuring a huge saltwater lake, Qinghai offers scenic hikes and important Buddhist pilgrimage sites. With expansive pasturelands and over a dozen mountains open to foreigners, tourism in Qinghai revolves around hiking, climbing, and visits to nomadic tribes herding yaks and sheep. Stack your prayer stones on a spectacular trek around sacred Tibetan Buddhist shrines, and observe wildlife such as wild camel, snow leopards, and black storks. The source of two major Chinese rivers, Qinghai Lake serves as a starting point for whitewater and float rafting along the Yangtze and Yellow rivers. Make the most of your holiday in Qinghai by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our China trip itinerary builder.
