Most beautiful lake in China
Qinghai Lake is a renowned lake of China and one of the most beautiful creations of Mother Nature. Just towards northwest of this amazing lake is the Bird Island. This island encompasses two islands namely Haixi Pi and Haixi Shan. The former one lies in the east while the latter is situated in the west. Haixi Shan is four times smaller than the Haixi Pi. However, most of the birds of the lake congregate on the Haixi Shan only. Birds from faraway mountains and deserts come here in the seasons of summer and spring to breed. The number increases to over 10,000 in the months of April and May. Of these birds, nearly 85% of the birds lay eggs on Haixi Shan only. Therefore, this island is also known as ‘Egg Island’. This makes the Bird Island a must-see tourist spot.
