Travel Guide

【How to Travel】
A park bus will take you up a mountain road to a plateau where the main lake is, with one or two brief stops for pictures. Stop at each scenic sight is more common on the way down, with a footpath adjacent to the road passing through the spots. If you want to walk down and get tired after a while, or if you want to hang around at a spot, just wait by a scenic spot or by the side of the road, and the hourly (or so) bus will stop on it's way down.

【What to See】
Qisehai (seven colour lake), Mugecuo lake, a number of smaller lakes in the vicinity.

Colourful rock carvings, hillsides covered in flags, stone houses and prayer flags with a backdrop of snow mountains (perfect for photographs, along the horse trail).
