From July to August each year is the peak tourist season of Qinghai Lake, accommodation is definitely super tight, so be sure to book a hotel in advance. The prices are relatively expensive, and very ordinary inns cost four to five hundred and one nights, and the supply exceeds demand.

The altitude of Qinghai Lake and its surroundings is about 3000 meters. Altitude sickness will be a little bit more or less, but it is not obvious. Pay attention, don’t exercise vigorously and it will be fine.

When you come to Qinghai Lake, the places where accommodation is generally concentrated are near Erlangjian Scenic Area, Heimahe Township, and Huanhu West Road. These are all on the edge of Qinghai Lake, and the farther one is Chaka Town, which is a few kilometers away from Chaka Salt Lake. , I still don’t recommend the past, the violent Qinghai Lake is seventy or eighty kilometers away, it’s too remote

The wind in Qinghai Lake is very strong, and the wind blowing from the lake is very cold. Watching the sunset from Qinghai Lake, but the latitude is high, the sunset time is too late
