QingHai Travel Guide

How long does it take for QingHai GanSu Big Loop Itinerary to take a few days?

The basic route of the big loop line is about 2,700 kilometers, and it takes at least 7 days. we suggest spend the less time on the road everyday,more time to visit.

I have plenty of time, can the big loop line take more days?

The normal seven-day loop, in fact, you also missed a lot of beautiful scenery in the northwest ^_^ For example: Hara Lake, Yadan on the water, Duck Lake, Tosu Lake, Sugan Lake, Yulin Grottoes, Yumen Old Town, Shandan Army Racecourse, Pingshan Lake Grand Canyon, Bayi Glacier…. If you are in October, you can also join the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Base and the Huyanglin of Ejina Banner. Therefore, on the basis of seven days, there are actually many attractions that can be added. It is ok to walk for about 10 days.

What is the cost of chartering the big loop?

Under the normal seven-day loop, all the expenses of a person are basically around 4,500-7500 yuan (including all expenses such as fare, accommodation, tickets, etc.). In July-August, the cost will be slightly higher, because the accommodation along the way was slightly expensive.

The big loop is a bit expensive. Is there any way to save money?

When traveling, some money can be saved, some money can’t be saved, Qinghai Gansu chartered car prices are almost transparent, no need to save in this section,.

The first element of saving money: book in advance, order as soon as possible. Determine the itinerary in advance, ticket as soon as possible, and book a car, because the number of tourists in the northwest is rising every year. When the tourist season is over, the car is tight, and the price will rise.

From the end of July to August, the 7-15-seat car on the northwest side is basically no longer available. At that time, the price is higher, and the car cannot be ordered, or the price is absurd. Book as early as possible, and book accommodation as soon as possible. The accommodations in Heimahe and Dachaidan are notoriously bad, and they are also famous. If you can book online 1-2 months in advance, there are a few places in these two places. For the Youth Hostel, booking a bed, the price is relatively acceptable. Don’t wait until you set off, then book the guest house for more than 500 CNY per nights.

Qinghai has a high altitude and will it react to the plateau?

Plateau altitude rarely occurs,and it is out of control even some pre measure.

What you really need to pay attention to is that you should rest well before you leave. Don’t let the plane land in Xining and start the big loop directly. It is best to have a half-day rest and adjust your physical condition.

What if high altitude happen? Don’t go to the roadside store to buy portable oxygen, it is best to go to the local health center to buy medical oxygen.

Are the accommodations worse on the loop ?

The price of accommodation in the two places of Heima River and Dachaidan is relatively expensive (400-500 yuan in the standard room in July and August). The room condition is of course not in line with its price, but… no way, the relationship between supply and demand is like this.

The accommodation in Heimahe is changed to the accommodation in Chaka Town. The price of the tea card is cheaper than that of the Heima River. At the same time, you can watch the sunset at the tea card (the tea card sunset is absolutely amazing). Some people feel sorry to miss the sunrise over the Heima River. In fact, the Heima River has to look at the weather when it is sunrise, and there are many people watching the sunrise, but the road to go is extremely narrow. I often go back and forth on the road for an hour in order to watch the sunrise… So, go to the tea card to watch the sunset~ For the accommodation in Dachaidan, we cooperate with several local herdsmen to provide family hotels for our westbound tourists in the summer. Clean, hygienic, price comparison hotel, a lot cheaper, really cost-effective

What kind of clothes do you need to prepare for the big loop?

Of course, it is beautiful clothes~~~ Hahaha, the temperature difference between the northwest and the night is big, even if it is in the northwest from July to August, it is recommended that you bring a thin down jacket, or a thick coat to prevent cold in the morning and evening. In terms of taking pictures, the colors of red, pink and yellow clothes are all good choices. The area is sparsely populated and the color is single. If there is a touch of bright color, it is really beautiful.

What delicious food along the way?

Handmade yoghurt in Xining, shabu-shabu mutton in Dachaidan, and yellow noodles in Dunhuang…. Generally, the master will recommend it to you on the road. What to eat, depends on the daily mood? Our driver’s master has a long food list in everyone’s mind. He will recommend it to you on the road.


There are a couple of reasonable restaurants round the Yongfu Hotel. Stalls and restaurants around here serve mostly Muslim food, including kebabs and mutton dishes.The hotel restaurant itself – a tiny place round the back of the building – has a cheap menu. If you want to sit outside, walk around the building to the right from the hotel entrance, and there’s a Muslim restaurant with a terrace and awnings. For excellent noodles, or a local breakfast of zasui soup made with ox and sheep entrails, try the place a couple of minutes to the south down the main road from the Yongfu. It’s the last building in a little row of shops and has a mosque-like exterior.
The best places to eat in Xining, however, are the markets downtown. The street leading east of Da Shizi fills up with food stalls during the evening and you can walk up and down sampling what you like. The shaguo – earthenware hotpots full of tofu, mushrooms and meat cooked in broth – are excellent. You can also get excellent jiaozi, hundun soup and other basic dishes prepared on the spot. The yoghurt here is good, too. The covered market, Shuijing Gang, with over 3,000 stalls, offers not only local food, but also specialities from all over the country. Many of the stalls are open until late at night, their stoves blazing in the dark. From the main street, walk down through the market, past the shops (Shuijing gang shangchang), to reach the area where you can sit and eat. For something more upmarket, try the Chinese-Western restaurant on Bei Dajie, just north of Da Shizi ( Bus No.1 will take you to the Dashizi stop and from here it is a short walk north near Yinma jie).

Practical Info.
Qinghai XiNing Live Weather

Most important facilities are located around the large traffic circle, Ximen. The main Bank of China (Mon-Fri & Sat am) is a huge building on Dongguan Dajie near the mosque, though any of the branch offices can also change travellers’ cheques – there’s one just west of Da Shizi. The main post office , where you can also make IDD telephone calls, is on Da Shizi; you enter by climbing the raised pedestrian walkway. You’ll find another office for making IDD calls a few minutes east of the train station. The telecom office on Tongren Jie, by the intersection with Wushi Jie, has a room full of computers on the second floor, open from 10am to 10pm; Internet access is Y10/hour.
