Gateway of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau

Xining is the capital city of Qinghai province. It is at the elevation of 7200 feet only, but it is also the entrance of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau.

Scene before landing... How can the airport be among those mountains?

There is an old folk saying in Qinghai. "There are three weirdness in Qinghai. No grass grows on the mountain. You can run on the roof. Girls don't take shower." Look at those houses. You can really run on its roof.
