We had a fabulous time in China. This was our second trip with Remote Lands...We received extraordinary service because of your introductions and behind-the-scenes monitoring.

Qinghai

This vast, barren province in northwest China is large in area but has comparatively few people. Its main touristic attraction is Qinghai Lake, the largest lake in China and home to more than 100,000 migrating birds. Close to the Silk Road, this province on the Tibetan Plateau is also home to a diverse array of ethnic groups, and was once part of the ancient Tibetan province, Ambo.

Aside from the lake, Qinghai Province has mountains, valleys of pasture land, hot springs, ruins and monasteries, as well as wildlife - some of which are protected species. The 44 ethnic groups of the region share strong religious ties and within the province are several key religious landmarks, including the sacred Tibetan mountain, Amnye Machen. Qinghai is one of the lesser-known provinces in China, and travelers who venture here are well off the mass tourism trail.
