A daily life scene from Xining

Two women meet in the street and catch up on the latest gossip and stories. In the background hangs a mop, the daily house cleaning is done.


XINING is the largest city on the Tibetan Plateau and the capital of Qinghai province. It has some 2.5 million inhabitants, mainly Han, Hui and Tibetan.

The city was a commercial hub along the Northern Silk Road's Hexi Corridor for over 2000 years, and was a stronghold of the Han, Sui, Tang, and Song dynasties' resistance against nomadic attacks from the west.

The capital of Qinghai province has a few impressive religious sites (Muslim and Buddhist), but most tourists regard Xining as a transport hub on their way to Gansu, Tibet or Xinjiang.
