Legend of Princess Wen Cheng when parents say goodbye, to leave Changan, wading climbing, a lot of hard work through the plateau to the desert, away from family and home as a result of the distance, from far away can not help thinking of the parents to Chang'an. She reminds me a parting gift Hokyo time when the mother had to say: If the memory of loved ones, you can see from the Hokyo. So hurry out "Hokyo sun", according to two hands holding up the picture to see Changan prosperity. Look at the front of the vast grassland, not the tears, she fell to the ground Hokyo. Unexpectedly, a landing Hokyo immediately into a high mountain called the Mountain ----------- In order to commemorate the Princess Wencheng, later built in this day and the Moon Pavilion. The Mountain barriered just a way east to the river, the river had to make a U-turn back to. People said the river is called Daotang River. It was also noted that this river is the tears of Princess Wen Cheng.
Daotang River is located in Qinghai province, which origined from Riyue mountain . And its west inflows the Qinghai Lake. From xingning to the west, the terrain becomes more and more high. Spiral twists and turns, then came to the big mountain, which is Riyue mountain. This is the gate of pastoral areas of Qinghai-Tibetan plateau.

Look out of the car, the scenery and pleasant, with blue sky, white clouds, dense forests and endless prairie. Grassland flocks of sheep grazing leisurely . Very fast car, two hours later, to the Mountain. Mountain turned over, the road twists and turns into a straight road, you might see afar, in the distant horizon, there is a long blue ribbon, tour guides say that it was the Qinghai Lake.
Both sides of the straight roads, except green grass, the most striking is the golden rape, a faint scent will blow against our faces, fresh. Those patches of rape , like yellow ribbons grassland decorated grassland and like weaving carpet in golden color. Driving a car quickly, a blink of an eye arrived the Qinghai Lake. The lake as big as the sea , blue as sky before us. The rise of distance, then endless lake blue like sky was so pure, so emotional, confused people, which is sky, which is the lake.
