We flew from Beijing to Lanzhou and rent a car on airport. Just drove to Xiahe and spend 1st night in Nirvana hotel. Th grassland is very beautiful. Just park the car on the street and go as far as you want.

We had an entertaining and informative day out with Wandhicke, the Nirvana hotel co-owner. Open space, a big sky, uncrowded roads, all things we were in need of seeing after having visited a couple of China's large cities. Not sure how it would go though without an English speaking guide.

We went for a Ganjia grassland excursion, it was organized by the hotel reception at the Overseas Tibetan Hotel. The ride was a bit rough coz of the current repairs on the roads but once we were over it, we really got to enjoy the open grasslands with the noamds grazing their yak and sheep. We visited a nomad family... More

it's nice but only if you have been enough time at xiahe itself, it's not a "must" and if you have only a day or two - it is much advised to stay at xiahe

We enjoyed an afternoon out at the Ganjia grasslands, it was not green like it is supposed to be during the summer, but we still enjoyed the countryside and the tibetan nomads and the yak and sheep. At the same time, you can also visit the black hat monastery and the ancient Bajiao village. I liked the Black hat monastery... More

Another grazing area lies further up the highway towards Xining and a little town with a picturesque temple complex. You can ride out on a bike or if you just want to pass by, do it on the 6:10 a.m. bus to Xining.

our trip to the ganjia grasslands made the trip to xiahe worth the effort. Hire a minivan taxi driver at the bus stop to take you there. It should only cost around 200 yuan. The driver should take you to a tibetan cave (which was unfortunately closed for the winter), an ancient walled city and a tibetan monestary. Make sure... More
