The Birds Island, Gangcha County
(4.3/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Looking out over the vast Lake Qinghai, you'll find The Birds Island, which during the months of May and June teems with nesting birds. The island gets its name from the huge and diverse array of birds that visit the lake (the largest in China) every summer to breed and raise their young, affording visitors opportunities to observe them in their natural habitat, and at the most important time in their yearly calendar. Witness thousands upon thousands of birds in flight around the desolate lake, a memorable experience for nature enthusiasts, as bareheaded goose, brown-headed gulls, and cormorants from all over the continent appear.

  • 冬天的青海湖不怎么好玩。因为天气寒冷,白天户外温度也有零下十几度,湖面有些部分都结冰了,几乎没有办法靠近湖边游玩。 鸟岛是青海湖中不容错过的一个景区,这个景区位于青海湖的西北方向,从西宁过来还是比较远的,开车过来要3个多小时,不过冬天这里没什么游客,只能包车或者自驾车过来。鸟岛最佳游览季节实际上是5月份到7月份。冬天几乎看不到一只鸟,整个湖面都是冰冻起来的,感觉像是到了冰河时代一样,湖面的冰层很厚...  more »
  • 鸟岛本身的景色其实不错,这是我为什么景观打5分的原因。但是鸟岛真正的旺季是在五月份左右,现在八月份去基本上看不到什么鸟了,除了蛋岛里一堆不飞的死气沉沉的鸟,结果景区居然还好意思收半年时间旺季的票!125元每人啊!性价比太低了,我在鸟岛外停车场拍到的鸟都比进鸟岛拍到的多。还有就是去景区停车场居然还要再收10元停车费!烂死了! 
  • 鸟岛位于青海湖最西边,我和老婆看到的时候真是太激动了,好美,好漂亮,有殴、水老鸦、天鹅、鹤,等,还有好多不认识的。有机会的话可以领孩子过来,能让孩子认识好多鸟类。
