Things To Do in China

Kumbum Monastery
4.5/5
12,075 Reviews
Historical Architecture
Kumbum Monastery (also called Ta'er Temple) is a Tibetan gompa with more than 400 years of history. Located in Xining's Huangzhong County, it belongs to the Gelug (or Yellow) School of Tibetan Buddhism. Kumbum Monastery has a number of ancient buildings including the main hall, Scripture Hall, Buddha Pagoda, and academy. At the center of the monastery complex, visitors will find the Dajinwa (Great Golden Tile) Temple. According to legend, this temple was erected on the site where Je Tsongkhapa, founder of the Gelug School, was born. A visit to Kumbum is not complete without taking the time to see and appreciate the butter sculptures, the murals, and the elaborate embroidery. The entire temple complex is full of magnificent buildings and rich treasures. However, the true charm of the complex lies in its holy atmosphere. It is one of the greatest tourist attractions in Xining.
Shapotou
4.6/5
9,090 Reviews
Desert
Shapotou lies 20 kilometers to the west of Zhongwei City, where the waters of the Yellow River slice through the endless expanse of the Tengger Desert. The contrast of the vast Tengger Desert with the ever-flowing Yellow River is an extraordinary sight. Here, you can visit a naturally occurring “sand slide” and slide down a 100-meter-high sand dune. Alternatively, you can float on the Yellow River on an ancient form of transportation: a goatskin boat! If you’re brave enough, cross the river on the zip-line connecting the two banks and experience the thrill of soaring through the open air over the roiling Yellow River. Of course, no trip to the desert is complete without a camel ride.
Maijishan Grottoes
4.6/5
1,239 Reviews
Grotto
