Magical Qinghai

Magical Qinghai 神奇的青海

The province of sublime landscapes and captivating history is set to impress

一個景觀壯麗和有歷史魅力的省份即將讓你印象深刻

Named after Qinghai Lake, China’s largest saltwater lake, Qinghai is a land of amazing sceneries, cultures, and wildlife. At 3,000 metres above sea level, Qinghai consists of large grasslands, as well as formidable mountains that might take more than mere courage to conquer. Bordering Gansu, Xinjiang, Sichuan and Tibet, Qinghai is a potpourri of different cultures with a healthy mix of Chinese and Tibetan influences.

青海省是根據中國最大鹹水湖青海湖來命名,這塊土地上有令人驚嘆的景色,文化和野生動物。青海省在海拔三千米以上,有一大片草原和壯觀的山脈,單靠勇氣恐怕還無法征服。青海跟甘肅,新疆,四川和西藏接壤,混合了不同的文化, 受到漢族與藏族文化的正面影響。

Linked by a railway between Qinghai and Mongolia since 2006, and an airport opened in Yushu County in 2009. Qinghai is relatively accessible and traveling around should not be too much of a hassle. Travellers to this part of China praise its clear blue sky, low white clouds, crisp fresh air and picturesque grasslands.

從2006年起,鐵路就連接了青海和蒙古,玉樹縣的機場也在2009年啟用。青海的交通比較便利,環遊青海省並不麻煩。來到這裡的遊客都很讚賞這裡的藍天,低矮白雲,清新的空氣和如畫的草原。

 

Qinghaihu National Park  青海湖國家公園

Located at the northeast part of the province, this national park boasts the largest inland saltwater lake in China. Some have described the lake as pure as a child’s heart, and as beautiful as an elegant lady. The lake offers year-round pleasure for viewing, from a coat of green spread over its surrounding grasslands and mountains, to snow-blanketed mountains and shimmering frozen lake, which might intrigue fishing enthusiasts to come for winter fishing.

這個國家公園位於青海省的東北部,號稱擁有中國最大的內陸鹹水湖,一些人形容這個湖像小孩的心那麼的純潔,像窈窕淑女般美麗。這個湖全年都可以觀賞,周圍的草原和山脈披上了綠草皮,有雪峰和波光粼粼的冰湖,或許會吸引釣魚愛好者在冬季時前來垂釣捕魚。

Next to the 5,694 square kilometer lake is Bird Island, home to more than 100,000 migratory birds, from bar-headed geese, brown-headed gulls, swans, to wild ducks, and is a paradise for birds’ watchers. Be enchanted by the sweet singing of birds within the dense forest, and enjoy the mild climate and peace of the area.

在這個面積5,694平方公里的湖邊有一個鳥島,有超過十萬隻候鳥在這裡停留,有斑頭雁,棕頭鷗,天鵝,野鴨,是鳥類觀察員的天堂,在享受這裡的溫和氣候與寧靜時也順便傾聽茂密樹林裡群鳥的甜美歌聲。

 

Amne Machin  阿尼瑪卿山

Amne Machin is an eastern extension of the Kunlun Mountains. Its ridge has caused one of the great bends of the Yellow River, where it flows along the south-western side of the Amne Machin Range, then turns 180 degrees at the borders of Gansu and Sichuan. Its height of 6,282 metres is ideal for climbing from June to August, and trekkers get to enjoy visual pleasures of high grassland, glacial lakes, dense forest and mountain valleys along the way. Although the area is covered in snow in winter, the scenery changes when summer arrives—green mountains dotted with flowers, sheep, yaks and Tibetan nomads.

Amne Machin-阿尼瑪卿山是崑崙山脈向東延伸的部份,它的山脊造成了黃河其中一段的大轉彎,在黃河的水流經阿尼瑪卿山的西南面時,在甘肅省和四川省的邊界處轉彎180度。6,282米的高度適合在六月到八月期間爬山,登山客可以沿途飽覽高原草地,冰川湖泊,茂密森林和山谷的視覺盛宴。雖然這個地區在冬季時被雪覆蓋,但夏季一到卻有不同的景緻,綠色的山巒間點綴著鮮花,綿羊,犛牛和藏族的牧民。

 

Kumbum Monastery  塔爾寺

A Buddhist monastery set in a narrow valley near to the village of Lusar, Kumbum Monastery is a repository of Tibetan culture and art. It houses numerous sculptures, statues and religious artefacts, and is home to about 300 monks. It is a good retreat from the bustling city of Xining, as the route to Kumbum Monastery is surrounded by stunning hills.

靠近魯沙爾村的狹長山谷裡有一座佛教寺廟叫塔爾寺,是藏族文化和藝術的寶庫,裡面收藏了許多雕塑,雕像和宗教文物,還住了三百多位僧侶。這是避開西寧城市的喧囂去隱居的好地方,因為前往塔爾寺的路都被群山團團圍繞。

 

Jyekundo Horse Festival  青海玉樹的結古多賽馬節

Held every 25 July, this festival brims with those racing, shows of horsemanship, a plant-burning rite to worship the god, traditional dances, singing and other activities. Besides the grand celebration of such traditional cultures, visitors can also take the chance to explore the surroundings, such as the market, monastery, as well as the source of the Yellow River and traditional artists villages.

這個節日在每年的7月25日舉行,有賽馬,馬術表演,燃燒植物去祭神的儀式,傳統舞蹈,唱歌和其他活動。除了這個盛大的傳統文化慶祝活動,訪客也可以趁機探索周圍的環境如市集,寺廟,黃河的源頭以及傳統藝術家之村。
