2018 Gangshika Trail Run & FKT by XTRAIL®️


Menyuan County locates in the northeast of Qinghai Province, at the altitude ranging from 2400m-5000m, and its altitude together with the location affected by the air flow from the India Ocean, makes it “the paradise of evading hot summer”.

There are many astonishingly stunning natural sceneries, such as the vast size of farmland occupied by blossoming golden rape flowers in summer. The “Golden Flowers”alone attracted tens of thousands of travellers from over China within in justa few days before they wither away.

The Gangshika Snow Mountain a.k.a Ridge of Cold Dragon, is another famous tourism spot in Menyuan.The peaks are above the snow line with crystal glaciers shining under the dazzling sun beam. The dusk glow casts “five rays and ten colours” around these mighty snow peaks.


Thousands of years ago, the ancestor of Tibetan people established their household here by farming. Some remains now become hot spotamong historian and anthropologists, as well as tourists.

Menyuan is one of the very places that the nomad culture merged with cultivating culture in wide wild western China. There are several local minorities, such as Tibetan, Hui, and Mongolian with their owncustoms and lifestyles.
