Golmud, sometimes transliterated as Ge'ermu or Geermu, is the second biggest city in Qinghai Province en route Xining to Lhasa. The name of the city derives from Mongolian, and its literal meaning in the local Western Mongolian is "Rivers". Built for mining natural sources such as salt, magnesium, etc, Golmud has nothing to offer except dry desert. Hardly do people know this less popular and small place - Golmud if you are not planning the overland trip to Tibet by train.

Though Golmud is a very small and remote city in dry desert of northwest China, it is a vital hub connecting Silk Road Travel with Tibet Travel. A 530km bus ride connects Dunhuang (famous for Mogao Cave) with Golmud. There are buses running between these two cities everyday starting from 8am in Golmud and ending in Dunhuang at 5pm, the bus ticket price is around 20 USD.
