City Guide -- Xiahe

Travel Guide of Xiahe in Gansu Province


The delightful monastery town of Xiahe is nestled north of the banks of the Da Xia He (Sang Chu) at an elevation of 2,800m (9186 ft.). Not surprisingly, it gets very cold in winter, dipping to -20°C (-4°F); even in August, the average temperature is a cool 15°C(59°F). The town is divided into two sections. Primarily Hui and Han at its eastern end, it changes abruptly to Tibetan as you approach the monastery in the west.

Xiahe used to be the ley of Qiang in the spring and autumn period. Once occupied by Xianbei, Tubo and Mongolian nationalities, it got its name as Xiahe in 1928. Neighboring area includes Shaanxi, Sichuan, and Qinghai provinces, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia Hui and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Regions.
