The Birds Island, Gangcha County

(4.4/5 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. Before you head to Gangcha County, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Gangcha County trip generator, to make sure you see all that Gangcha County has to offer, including The Birds Island.

  • 上次5月遊青海湖時,天氣一天四季變化,好神奇,到鳥島時還下雪,好多人穿著夏天的短袖,導遊徵詢大家的意見,以租金10元在當地租綠色大長袍,小小高高的鳥島,上面擠滿了鳥,應向中最深的是第一次見到鸕鶿,黑黑的羽毛,顯得很突出,有些人的相機,因為氣溫太低,導致電池無法正常輸出電力,無法使用。 當我們行駛在公路上時,往右邊的青海湖望過去,見藍藍的湖水與藍藍的天是一體的,藍藍的湖水像一座高聳的牆,一直連接到天...  more »
  • 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!  more »
