The beautiful QingHai Lake 青海湖

QīngHǎi Hú, in QingHai province, lies in a depression on the Tibetan Plateau.

The lake is 3,200 meters above sea level and salty though fed by three rivers. It is an important migratory stop-over for many birds.


Surrounded first by lush grasslands then mountains, it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
