Lake Kokonor, Xining

(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Explore the ellipse-shaped natural beauty at Lake Kokonor. The lake rests encircled by mountains at an altitude of 3,195 m (10,482 ft), making it a refuge with cool air and views of green landscapes. Go on a hiking trip to explore the farmlands where herds of cattle go about their business and wheat sways with the wind. Each season brings new vibrant colors to the lake's environment, as well as migrating animals and tourists. Apart from enjoying the natural wonders, you can also go on a yak ride to visit surrounding historic sites or go fishing. For a reasonable fee, you can rent tents and food if you're game for camping. Using our custom trip planner, Xining attractions like Lake Kokonor can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
