Visit Qinghai Tibetan Inhabited Area

Qinghai Province is the biggest Tibetan inhabited area next to the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). Located mostly on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, the province has long been a melting pot for a number of ethnic groups including the Han, Tibetan, Hui, etc. The Tibetans reach 1,400,000, accounting for 1/4 of the whole population of Qinghai. They almost cluster together in Hainan, Huangnan, Guoluo, Yushu, Haixi, and Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefectures.

The Tibetans in Qinghai Province all believe in Tibetan Buddhism. That’s why there are about 530 lamaseries here, many of which are famous for their profound history and grand construction. The fresco paintings on the wall are extremely delicate and artistic.

Animal husbandry contributes to Qinghai’s economy the most. Local herdsmen are often experienced and very friendly. Owning to the fertile earth, local livestock is strong and healthy. During grazing season, you can see flocks of cattle and sheep wandering on the green grassland casually under the sapphire sky. What a picture!
