Sign Up to Join the Hutong’s Red Cliffs & Tibetan Monasteries Trip to Qinghai
Qinghai is one of the frontiers of adventure travel in China, a springboard for China’ wildest, untouched areas begging to be discovered and explored. Located on the northeastern part of the Tibetan Plateau, Qinghai is a province in China surrounded by Gansu Province on the north and east, Xinjiang Province on the west, Tibet on the south and Sichuan on the southeast. Home to many Tibetan monasteries, vast grasslands, the headwaters of the three of Asia largest rivers – the Yellow River, the Yangtze River and Mekong River, the area boasts a mosaic of ethnic groups, including Tibetan, Mongols, Tu, Goloks and Hui with a vibrant religious life.
