Qinghai Lake in autumn
By Chen Ziyan (chinadaily.com.cn)
Although they say autumn is not the best season to visit Qinghai Lake, in my eyes, it's a different kind of beauty. After taking a 25-hour trip by train, I finally reached my destination - Qinghai.
Qinghai province, inhabited by many ethnic groups, is a sparking jewel set on the northwest plateau of China, where the Yangtze River, the Yellow River as well as the Mekong River take their source.
Since there is not enough time to visit all the wonderful landscapes, I spent only four days there and another day in its neighboring province, Gansu. Here are some pictures I took of the marvelous land during these days that I really want to share with everybody.
It's beauty, mystery and diversity make it a worthwhile trip for every nature lover, including cyclists.
Travel slowly to take in the sights and scenery, as well as to snap photos.
