We enjoyed both the drive to the lake from Xining and the lake itself. The scenery is superb - the lake was backed by snow covered mountains. It was also interesting to see the grazing animals - sheep, goats, duos, horses. The only yaks we...More

Come here but be careful how you do it. Learn from me because I $&%#ed up and went cheap: local bus tour with AUTHENTIC BUFFET. Don't do that. Get a car. Carpool, talk to the guy your hostel host recommends, whatever you've gotta do: get...More

I visited the lake a couple of years ago, and I can say the views don't worth spent time. Well, if you are going in this direction short 10-15 km detour is OK, but obviously it is foolishly to go there especially. Well, may be...More
