China travel guide

China - Qinghai (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Qīnghǎi chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Big, bold and beautifully barren, Qīnghǎi occupies a vast swathe of the northeastern chunk of the Tibetan Plateau. In fact, as far as Tibetans are concerned, this is Amdo, one of old Tibet’s three traditional provinces.

Much of what you’ll experience here will feel more Tibetan than Chinese; there are monasteries galore, yaks by the hundred and nomads camped out across high-altitude grasslands.

  • go birdwatching on the shores of Qīnghǎi Lake, the largest in China
  • maps
  • purchase a Tibetan thangka straight from the artist’s easel in Tóngrén
  • transport
  • hike on Mt Amnye Machen, eastern Tibet’s most sacred mountain
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Xīníng & around, Tóngrén (Repkong), Guìdé, Yùshù (Jyekundo) & around, and Golmud.
