Qinghai Province is located in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau with Xining as its capital city. Qinghai Lake is the largest salt-water lake in China, which also situates in Qinghai Province. The beginnings of Yangtze River, Yellow River and Lancang River (Mekong River call overseas) are also in Qinghai Province. Qinghai tours focus on natural sightseeing, such as Qinghai Lake, Kanbula National Forest Park, Qilian Mountain Grassland, Mengyuan Rape Flower Scenic Spot, ect. Since Xining is one of the important transit cities for train or flight into Lhasa, Qinghai tours are often arranged to connect with Tibet tours. Besides, Qinghai tour is a good alternative when Tibet is not open to foreign visitors with the Tibet-like highland view and Tibetan Temples, such as Taer Monastery.
