Strolling around Xining I thought of climbing up the Beichan Tuluo Temple. It is a vast (but relatively new) Taoist temple with many buildings amongst which the temple of heaven, earth and water gods. Unfortunately, the main attractions up in the cliff are closed (obviously due to rock slides). It is not sure when the gallery will be opened again - as there are no informations given anywhere (even the tourist information office inside the temple had no clue).

The taoist temple itself is certainly worth a visit, but don’t be disappointed if the stairs leading up the mountain are blocked with funny signs telling you about “no climbing”.

This is a great Taoist temple that is located on Beishan Mountain side north of the town. If you have one extra day in XIN don't want to go out of the city. This place will fill your day. Reaching to this place with public bus is not the easiest way. It is better to take taxi to the temple, then walk back to the city.
Bring some food or snacks...

Ride bus No.10,11,19,21,66, or 107 to North Mountain Market (北山市场), and then walk north across the train rail and towards the hill you would see the temple and its flight of stairs to the top. We expected to pay 5元 but at the time of my visit no one asked to pay and we can't find any ticket booth so we just entered anyway. The temple ground is free and if you felt you have enough energy, climb the stairs to the top of the hills. At the moment of my visit it is closed for safety reasons. During my visit they put off-limit warning sign on the stairs towards the top but we ignore it anyway. Halfway through the climb you can see some of the sandstones crumbling and the place starts to look like an abandoned site. Continue to the top you can find small offering altar and a little pagoda, and you also will be rewarded with unobstructed panoramic view of the whole Xining. On a good day you can see clearly some 15-20 km out. For me the climb to the top of the hills is definitely a do not miss if you are visiting Xining !

the place has seen it's better days but it is being slightly renovated now. There is no entrance fee and you can spend a few hours walking around the hills and temples. If you take the path on the left, you will enter the area of the temples carved in the hill, altough there is no entrance to the most interesting spots now (I guess it used to be, but now it is blocked). And if you chose the path on the right, you will go up a nice hill with the view on the city on one side and view on the mountains looking liked "Danxia formations - colourful rocks" on the other side. It is hard to catch a taxi back to the city and you will need to cross a warehouse area to get to the main street, but being in Xining, do not miss this place.

Temple supposedly has a history of over 1900 years and is the second largest air-hanging temple in China. Only the buildings at the foot of the hills are opened to visitors when I was there and one can still take photos of the buildings on the cliff from there. One can also take about an hour's walk up the adjacent hills to visit buildings at the top e.g. stupa, and get a nice view of the city.

The place is about 15 min bus journey from Xining Railway Station, followed by a 10 min walk from the nearest bus stop..

A taxi will cost you about 10 yuan. It is a Nice little hike up the Mountain with a view over Xining. Not too touristic, and for free. Seems like under construction, despite still worth the visit!

This site is quite nice however you cannot access the top and most of the temples are under repair. You ca still visit if you want but if you hace the option probably it’s better to go visit some other place. There is no entrance fee.

Just to mention that the place has been closed since October 2017. You can only take a picture of the 1st temple. We have been told that you cannot climb any more because of landslides.

We got a taxi to take us to Beishan. You need to walk under the motorway and then up to the temple. The taxi took us miles away, and although this is a 3A national monument it is not well sign posted. Once there it is very interesting, the temples are still in use, and its worth climbing the hill for the view back over Xining and to see the old temples. We couldn't go along to the ones built in the cliff face though as they were still being restored and didn't look very safe.
