Beautiful scenery but it is worth to rent a scooter or bicycle and go explore the small villages around. Local people are very warm and welcoming although some Mandarin Chinese skills are a must to interact

I bicycled around this lake... breathtaking! So surreal to hop off the bike and walk around the stunning green fields with the yaks.

We are city folks here in Singapore so this is a 'wow' for us. So much greenery, clear water...clean air and peace here. As you drive out, you get to see more greenery, wild animals grazing (yes, this is truly free range!) and also get...More

It was not far from city centre, perhaps 7-8km. We saw horses, cows and pigs grazing in a huge grassland. Perhaps it was the wrong season, the lake area was not big and the water wasn't clear. There wasn't any bird too. Not much of...More

Came here with a naturalist to watch birds. Impressive finds. Spotted a number of waterfowl and most precious of all — a black necked crane! Went cycling here the other day but was buzzed by a local horse keeper to pay for “environmental protection fee”.

Wo got to ride horses but it wasn't so cheap (around 150RMB per person). The lake was big because it is winter but the vegetation was yellow. You can see a lot of birds, cows, pigs and horses. Worth a visit but don't expect too...More

Had a very nice time exploring the lake. Full of wild birds on the lake with horses and yaks roaming freely. Great picture opportunity here. We paid CNY 150 for a driver to drive us around the lake on his SUV for 5 of us....More
