Nanshan mountain park is at top of the city from where you can see the panoramic view of the whole city. But it’s too windy. Park is quite big, toilets are there and some food stall also there. Taxis can go up till the parking.

Avoid weekends if possible as it's rather busy then. Many shaded areas with mature trees and benches and places to picnic. It's a steep walk up to the top of the mountain but a taxi or tuk-tuk can take you to the top. The piped...More

The Nan Shan Park is a place for families to go have picnics or play, but during the week it's also a nice place to walk or go jogging. Specially from May to October it's a place to enjoy with others. There is also a...More

It's free, fun and relaxing. If you only have 30 minutes, great, check out the view and get a sense of the layout of Xining. If you have 2 or 3 hours to spare, even better. Explore and discover the Tibetan prayer flags, the little...More

First went in 2011 with my ex when we came back from Darlag. It's a place where you can get a good view of Xining from above, and see how the city extends along the valley. Quite a few Amdo music videos were taped here....More
