It was near the end of my northwest trip. This was the first time I visited the salt lake. I could not image how a salt lake would look like before. The first scene came into my eyes were salt mountains. I had never seen so much salt heaping up together. There were some small pool separated from the lake,... More

The salt lake is an interesting place where the shallow water at the surface provides a reflection and yet the lake is solid enough for people to walk on.

It is a rare place on the planet, with such a big hot area, a lake, with salty dense water. The surface of the late is like a mirror. The sunshine is very strong. be... More

Our experience of the lake was truly mesmerizing. It totally felt like being in a science fiction. We reached there late in the evening and the weather was cloudy. The experience this mix of weather and time generated is something we will never be able to forget. The entrance has a ticket of RMB 50. If you have a valid... More

The tourist train has stopped working, garbage everywhere and the sculptures is almost gone due to wind and rain. Don't expect anything spectacular. Good place to take photos on a sunny day though!
