What people are saying:

The largest freshwater lake in Gannan is an important wetland in the eastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is known as a pearl on the plateau. It was named a provincial migratory bird nature reserve in 1982. The area where Gahai Lake is located is called "Coning" by Tibetans, which is "a place where yaks walk around". Gahai Lake is rich in water and grass, and many rare birds that have moved from the south to the north have settled and reproduced here. Black-necked cranes, grey cranes, swans and other rare birds are all over the grassy beaches of the lake.
