City Guide -- Xining

Travel Guide of Xining of Qinghai Provice

Located on the northeastern part of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Xining is the provincial capital of Qinghai. Xining is typical example of a plateau city. This inland, far northwestern province is called the “ocean of hua'er” (a type of folk song) in recognition of its cultural wealth. Named after the large salt lake within its borders, Qinghai (literally, “blue ocean”) is China's fourth-largest province.

Xining was once an important stop on the century-old Silk Road. In and around Xining, visitors can find the Ta’er Monastery (Kumbum), one of the two most important Tibetan monasteries outside Tibet, Dongguan Great Mosque. Xining also provides access to some natural attractions with superlative beauty including the Qinghai Lake, the largest inland salt-water lake in China, the Bird Island on the west shore of the Qinghai Lake.

The recently finished Qinghai-Tibet railway marks a new era for Xining’s significant role in tourism. Xining’s similarity with Tibet in weather allows Xining an “adapted stop” for visitors who will then gradually adapt themselves to the harsh weather condition in Tibet.
