This was a great less-crowded place to see, and no charge. It has really nice views of the city. It's a walk uphill, maybe a little under a mile, but you can take a car for about 10 RMB. At the top, there are paved walkways throughout which lead to a grassy area, some Buddhist buildings, an Islamic building, and park area.

In the park, the rocks at the top of the hill are constructed from steel bars and concrete, so be careful where you walk as some areas have fallen out or could potentially fall out.

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.

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 monastery (with ridiculously friendly monks), a mosque (with one of my favorite gates in all of China), and some other hidden treasures like a beautiful sunflower field.

We caught bus 17 from the city to the base of Nanshan Mountain and walked up. It took about 40 minutes although at one stage the path was blocked and we had to climb around a large barrier. It was obvious that many others had done this too. There are lovely gardens and terrific views from the top but beware of the toilets as they are disgusting ( at least the only ones we saw were)

Visited the temple which is built up a small mountain and as one climbs new buildings are presented. This a typical Budd's temple and there are several different buildings to enjoy. It's medium sized and as one climbs city views are also revealed. Best done on a clear sunny day to get the best views. It's free, but one can make donations and buy incense and candles to light and pray. The temple had a nice range of potted flowers in August and takes a about 1-2 to see most of the buildings. Depending on where you hotel is located the temple is near a. Is stop and there are lots of taxis nearby if needed.

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 music does rather spoil the tranquility though.
Pleasant enough place to enjoy and ice-cream and wander around the pathways.
No entry charge if you arrive on foot, I'm not sure if the car park is free though.

This park appears as it has had some investments 20 years ago (cable lift, little train around the park) but halfway they decided it wasn't worth it. There used to be a ticket booth to get into the park but it is abandoned now. There's some infrastructure works going on in the park and they put a fence around the tibetan site. They are welding metal constructions to put prayer wheels in. I think that in the near future you'll have to pay to get into this side of the park.

Really not much to see besides the amazing view over the city next to the prayer flags.

Really enjoyed visiting the temples on this mountainside. It was a nice day trip walking from the Lete Youth Hostel. You can also hike past the temple up to some great views of the city!

I ran in this park for many years. I love the variety of flowers and trees. Also mountaintop park so very nice views. Nice smooth and clean pathways. Bikes for rent, playgrounds and food vendors. Small enough to know your way around in just a few visits yet large enough to visit and find something/ someplace new to relax, picnic or run.

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 restaurant where you can order tea and Chinese dishes, but it's rather expensive.
