Zhongshan Iron Bridge was built in the Qing Dynasty and renowned as the “first bridge on the Yellow River under the heaven”.

D2 Xining - Ta’er Monastery - Qinghai Lake - Riyue Mountain

After breakfast, your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel. Firstly, you will take the coach driving to Xining, Qinghai Province. Our first tourist spot is Ta’er Monastery. In the Tibetan language, Ta’er Monastery is called ‘gongben’, which means ‘10,000 figures of Buddha’. During its long 400 years of history, it has gradually become a place of interest for its distinct ethnic color and native style. The Ta’er Monastery is a group of fine buildings in a combination of both the Han and Tibetan styles of architecture on the mountain slopes. You can enjoy the Three Unique Artwork of Ta'er Monastery: murals, butter sculptures and applique.

Murals: Mural paintings are painted directly on walls, beams and fabrics. A kind of stony mineral dye is used in painting to keep pictures fresh for hundreds of years. There are countless murals in Ta’er Monastery. A large number of colorful and vivid mural paintings are displayed in Dajingwa Hall, Dajing Hall and Xiaojingwa Hall.

Butter Sculptures: Several months before the Spring Festival, artists begin to make all kinds of butter sculptures with mountains, rivers, flowers, plants, elephants, white cranes, old folks, Buddha immortals, halls, towers, pavilions, terraces, stories of religious life, and so on. Butter sculptures are made of pure white butter and stony mineral fuels of various colors.

Applique: Appliques fully demonstrating the artistic style and culture of Tibet are made of colorful silk-fabric cuttings which are in the shape of Buddha, man, flower, plant, bird, wild animal, insect and fish. The cuttings are stuffed with wool, cotton or other woolly materials to achieve three-dimensional effect and finally these cuttings are sewn on a large silk fabric. So, the appliques look vivid and lively.

In the afternoon, you will arrive at Qinghai Lake. This large salt lake in little traveled Qinghai Province in western China measures 4,635 square kilometers in area. You will get a bird view of the marvelous lake scenery by bicycle for about 20 kilometers and experience the spectacular high-mountain scenery and the cultural mix of Tibetan, Mongolian, and Muslim people. One thing you might be able to find during this bike trip is some solitude. The lake is the biggest lake in China, and it is away from major towns. Let your mind fly and escape all your worries and the hustle and bustle of the city. You can also enjoy the beautiful and once-in-a-lifetime sunset.  

Then on our way to the hotel, you can visit Riyue Mountain to get to know the origin of its name and taste the legend of Princess Wencheng.

 

D3 Chaka Salt Lake Escape Tour

Get up early to enjoy the amazing sunrise in Qinghai Lake, after breakfast, you will go to Chaka Salt Lake. It is as beautiful as a fairyland. Its pureness, white and blue make it like a dreamland. It is also rated as “one of the 55 places people must go” by Chinese National Geographic. In the distance, the water and the sky have no obvious boundary. Here, the sky is a part of the lake and the lake is a supplement for the sky. This view seems extremely magic. You can take pictures with different postures by standing on the Lake, take off shoes and have a close contact with Salt Lake, walk to the center of Salt Lake along the railway track to view the splendid scenery on the water and see rare salt sculptures! Then you will drive back to Xining. Along the way, you can enjoy the natural and pure views of the Lake again with great memories.

 

D4 Mati Temple - Zhangye

After a good rest and a delicious buffet breakfast, you will go to Mati Temple. Looking at this place decorated with numerous colored flags, you find yourself in a completely different place in terms of spirit and culture. Religion is a foundation stone. It’s like a trip back in time for a few centuries. The uniqueness of Mati Temple Grotto lies in the grand scale of Buddhist towers, caves and shrines in the cave. The surroundings of Mati Temple are also very beautiful, and the verdant hills, green waters, unusual peaks and peculiar caves are the most famous things of Mati Temple. No souvenir shops and crowds of people, almost natural idyll for nature lovers. After this fantastic tour in Mati Temple, you will go to Zhangye and begin another sand tour.

 

D5 Giant Buddha Temple - Rainbow Mountains – Jiayuguan 

In the morning, you will go to Giant Buddha Temple to visit the existing architectures in Giant Buddha Temple: the Giant Buddha Hall, the Buddhist Classics Hall and the Clay Pagoda to get a cultural nourishment and feel your inside tranquility. After lunch, you will go to a dream and legendary place- Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park, also know as Rainbow Mountains by many people. The Zhangye Danxia landform area is known as “the eye candy of Zhangye”. Many artists admire this masterpiece as it is unbelievably colorful, like an imaginative oil painting.

Red is the main color of Colorful Hills. Under the sunlight, the seemingly endless hills form a sea of fire. Some of the hills feature rock stripes in different colors, looking like bright ribbons fluttering in the desert. The most representative spots of this kind are the Seven-color Screen and the Colorful Sunset, looking like a rainbow hanging in the distance. However, scenes are totally different on the edge of this area. The colors there turn into yellow and grey, resembling crystal shells in the sun. Scenes are even more breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. Then, the staggered lights and shadows thrown on the hills endow this region with a dynamic beauty. Then you will go to Jiayuguan.

 

D6 Weijin Tomb Murals - Jiayuguan Pass

After breakfast, you must get ready to experience the majestic murals and the grand Jiayuguan. In the morning, you will have a visit to Weijin Tomb Murals to have a knowledge of its history background and prepare to have a taste of the arts on the wall and bricks. Then, you will go to Jiayuguan Pass. Jiayuguan Pass, constructed in 1372, is the western starting point of Ming Great Wall. Under the administration of Suzhou Garrison, it is also one of the nine important frontier towns in China in ancient times. In late Han Dynasty, there was called Yushizhang, while during the Five Dynasties, it was called Tianmen Pass. Jiayuguan was a place of strategic importance in every dynasty in ancient China.

 

D7 Echoing-Sand Mountain - Crescent Lake - Dunhuang Mogao Caves - Lanzhou

Time goes by, our in-depth cultural and natural tour is going to come to the end. Our last two destinations are Echoing-Sand Mountain and Crescent Lake and Dunhuang Mogao Caves. Have you ever heard of a mountain that echoes to the sound of sand as you slide down its slopes? Can you image a perennially limpid lake in an area of desert sand? Here in Dunhuang, Gansu Province, you will have the chance to enjoy the wonderful spectacle of the Echoing-Sand Mountain and Crescent Lake.

Seen from afar, the mountain is just like a golden dragon winding its way over the horizon. As you approach you become aware that the sand has many colors ranging from red to yellow, green, black and white. On days when a strong wind blows, the fast shifting sand roars; but when the wind is little more than a light breeze, the sand produces gentle, dulcet sounds akin to music.

Encircled by the mountain, there is Crescent Lake so called because of its shape. The water in the lake is so pure and sweet that it looks like an emerald set in the sand. Many of the visitors who have made their way down the mountain like to drink from the lake. According to historical record, the lake has been in existence for hundreds of years without ever being buried by the sand; it is really a geological wonder.

Then you will drive to the place that you can never miss - Mogao Caves. Mogao Caves encompass caves, wall paintings, painted sculptures, ancient architecture, movable cultural relics and their settings. The property area and buffer zone contain all the attributes that demonstrating the values of the Mogao Caves and thus ensure the integrity of both the heritage site and its environment.

There are some notes while visit Mogao Caves in order to better protect this cultural treasure:

² The Digital Exhibition Center has been formally open to the public since August 1, 2014. Shuttle bus service is available between the caves and the Digital Exhibition Center. Visitors can enjoy two amazing movies 'A thousand Years of Mogao Caves' and 'Splendors of Buddha's Palace' at the digital exhibition center and then take the shuttle bus to visit the caves.

² Within the caves, no photo! An electronic torch maybe necessary to see inside the caves.

 

Then you will take a train with soft berth from Dunhuang to Lanzhou, which may be a fresh experience for you.

Tour Attractions

★ Ta'er Monastery: As the religious activity center of both monks and followers of the Yellow Hat Sect (also named Gelugpa Sect, a branch of Tibetan Buddhism), the Ta'er Monastery (Kumbum Monastery) is located in Huangzhong County, Qinghai Province, 25 kilometers (about 16 miles) away from the capital city of Qinghai Province - Xining. In order to commemorate Tsong Khapa (1357-1419), founder of the Yellow Hat Sect, the Ta'er Monastery was built in 1577 more than 150 years after his death. Now it is considered a sacred place in China.


★ Qinghai Lake: is the largest lake in the People's Republic of China. Located in Qinghai province on an endorheic basin, Qinghai Lake is classified as a saline and alkaline lake. The current Chinese name "Qinghai," the older Mongolian name "Kokonor", and the Tibetan name translate to "Green Sea", "Blue Lake" and "Teal Sea", respectively. Qinghai Lake has become a tourist destination popular for biking and bird watching, the spectacular high-mountain scenery, and the cultural mix of Tibetan, Mongolian, and Muslim people.


★ Riyue Mountain:Situated 40 kilometers (25 miles) from southwest of Huangyuan County, Riyue (Sun and Moon) Mountain is an important geographic divisional line in the geography of the country. The scenery in both sides is totally different: there is the rural scenery of the highland on the east side whereas vast grassland scenery on the west. Two kinds of scenery with vast differences within a mountain is very rare in China. The average height of this mountain is about 4,000 meters. To the east of Riyue Mountain is the Huangshui Valley, to the northwest is the Qinghai Lake and to the southwest are continuous rolling mountains, vast grassland and scattering tents.

★ Chaka Salt Lake: Situated in Chaka Town, Ulan County, Haixi in China’s western Qinghai Province, the Chaka Salt Lake (Caka Salt Lake) is in the western part of the Chaka Basin, 298 kilometers (85 miles) from Xining, capital of Qinghai. This natural crystallized saline lake is regarded as the eastern gateway to Qaidam Basin, which reserves the largest salt mine in the world. Lying at an altitude of 3,059 meters (10,036 feet), the lake is oval shape and covers an area of 105 square kilometers (40 square miles), ten times larger than the West Lake of Hangzhou. However, it is the smallest among the several salt lakes in Qaidam area, but different from others for its coexistence of both solid and liquid salt. The snow-white lake bed and the crystal blue water against the azure sky win it the reputation of ‘Mirror of the Sky’. Travel to such a beautiful world of salt embedded in the snowy mountains and verdant meadows, tourists would inevitably feel like they are in a fairyland.

★ Mati Temple: also known as the Horse’s Hoof Temple is a Buddhist temple complex located inside the cliff. It presents an amazing vision: an almost sheer rock wall opens in front of us, riddled with holes, caves and open galleries, with little wooden pavilions clinging miraculously to the rock. According to the legend, a horse from the heaven (Chinese Pegasus) once left a mark of horse hooves here, and thus the temple got its name. The legendary print of the horse hooves now exists in the Mati Hall, serving as an indispensable treasure of the temple.

★ Gaint Buddha Temple: it was built in 1098 during the Western Xia Regime with a history of over 900 years. Its name has changed several times. It was named "Kasyapa Buddha Temple", "Bojue Temple", "Hongren Temple", etc.. As there is a large reclining Buddha, so people call it "Reclining Buddha Temple" or " Big Buddha Temple." In 1996, it was listed in the fourth batch of national key cultural relics protection units.


★ (Rainbow Mountains) Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park: Extending along the northern slope of Qilian Mountain in west China, Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park in Gansu is the best representative of China’s colorful Danxia landform and the largest Danxia landscape in an arid area, with a wide variety of landforms. Undulating fiery-red ridges together with amazing multicolored mountain folds transform the park into an immense sea of fire with rolling waves, earning it the reputation of China's Rainbow Mountains and also one of the “Top 10 Geographical Wonders of the World” selected by the National Geographic.

 

★ Weijin Tomb Murals: Weijin Tomb Murals are located on the endless expanse of the desert, 20 km away from the northeast of Jiayuguan City. There are 1400 brick tombs of Jin and Wei Dynasties scattered here, which are the famous JinWei Tombs, and they were reputed as “world’s largest underground art gallery”. The ancient tombs extend east and west to Guoyuan Township of Jiuquan City and northwest to Xincheng Township. The tombs on the desert just like waves in the sea.

★ Jiayuguan Pass: Jiayuguan is a pass standing at the western end of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall. Different from the well-known sections built with stones or bricks, Jiayuguan Great Wall was built with rammed earth, making yellow its dominant hue and helping the pass blend harmoniously with the surrounding desert. The city where the pass is located is named after the pass, also called Jiayuguan, sitting in China’s northwest Gansu Province.


★ Echoing-Sand Mountain (Mingsha Shan) and Crescent Lake: The mountain is five kilometers (about three miles) away from the city of Dunhuang. Seen from afar, the mountain is just like a golden dragon winding its way over the horizon. As you approach you become aware that the sand has many colors ranging from red to yellow, green, black and white. Encircled by the mountain, there is Crescent Lake so called because of its shape. The water in the lake is so pure and sweet that it looks like an emerald set in the sand. Many of the visitors who have made their way down the mountain like to drink from the lake. According to historical record, the lake has been in existence for hundreds of years without ever being buried by the sand; it is really a geological wonder.

 

★ Dunhuang Mogao Caves: Carved into the cliffs above the Dachuan River, the Mogao Caves south-east of the Dunhuang oasis, Gansu Province, comprise the largest, most richly endowed, and longest used treasure house of Buddhist art in the world. It was first constructed in 366AD and represents the great achievement of Buddhist art from the 4th to the 14th century. 492 caves are presently preserved, housing about 45,000 square meters of murals and more than 2,000 painted sculptures. Situated at a strategic point along the Silk Route, at the crossroads of trade as well as religious, cultural and intellectual influences, the 492 cells and cave sanctuaries in Mogao are famous for their statues and wall paintings, spanning 1,000 years of Buddhist art.

Travel Tips:

  • The Silk Road becomes drier as it heads west into China, given its extreme inland location. Since the road meanders through desert and mountainous areas, be prepared for extremes in temperature. The temperature varies widely from day to night in Qinghai and Gansu province, so please remember to take clothes to keep warm.

  • Use sunscreen, sunglasses, and lip creams to protect your eyes and skin from the sun. Also consider bringing a moisturizer because the air is very dry in the desert areas.

  • Do not eat too much meat and fruit; otherwise, your digestive system may be disturbed.

  • Please do not talk about sensitive issues such as religion and politics in this trip. 42.8 percent of the total population of Qinghai province are minorities.
