Qinghai-Charhan Salt Lake
The world-known Charhan Salt Lake covers an area of 5,868 square kilometers with 60 billion tons of mineral deposits. It leads the way in China in the deposits of potassium, magnesium, lithium, and sodium, and is the largest leopoldite producer in China.
The Qinghai-Tibet Highway, the highest of its kind in the world, runs through the salt lake. The colorful world of salt forms a unique view on the highland lake, attracting visitors from all parts of the world.
The lake has been renowned as the King of Salt Lake. The Salt Bridge, 60 kilometers north of the downtown area, stretches 32 kilometers, spanning over the salt lake. Entirely laid with salt, the bridge is straight, flat, and smooth.
