This is not Bolivia: The Salt Lake You Never Knew About

by admin

Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, one of the most famous salt mines in the world, is a great example of how large quantities can be used. The Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah may be also well-known to Americans.Chaka Salt Lake

This is not Bolivia or Utah.

This is actually in Chaka, which is located in Qinghai, western China. This picture will show that it is actually a salt lake and not a salt flat.

Chaka, also known as the “Mirror of the Sky”, is not the only salt lake in the Haixi Mongol or Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Qinghai. However, it is most well-known for its incredible beauty.

Chaka Salt Lake is a mixture of liquid and solid salt. It creates beautiful panoramas against the azure sky and mountains on the horizons.

The Chaka Salt Lake Park is approximately 298 km from Xining (the capital of Qinghai).

You can take a bus or train from Xining and Chaka. However, driving is the most scenic and there are many places to hire drivers in Xining. Many guesthouses and hostels have cars and drivers available for hire.

It’s only a half-mile from the park’s entrance once you’re inside. On a sunny day it’s an easy walk. If you prefer, you can pay to ride a train or minibus. You can walk to it, although it is a little further away if your goal is to get to the center of the lake.

You will be greeted as you enter the main area with a Mongolian and Tibetan prayer flags as well as a warning to wear your sunglasses. Do it. Chaka is located at over 3,000m, which means that UV rays can be stronger and the lake reflects like a mirror.

As you approach the salt lake, huge salt sculptures will be scattered. You’ll eventually reach one median of salt that is lined by a railway track for the park trains and flanked on both sides by the salt lake.Chaka Salt Lake salt sculpture

Although some areas are restricted due to the lake’s depth, others can be accessed. People do.

Chaka Salt Lake would be a hot spot for Instagram if Instagram was permitted in China. The lake bed was dotted with throngs of women wearing flowing dresses (red being the most popular), and waving colorful scarves.

If you prefer to explore China outside the main cities, and are interested in seeing more of China than the major cities along its eastern coast, then I recommend Chaka Salt Lake for a pleasant day. You can wear a red dress or not.
