Xining is the capital of Qinghai province in north west China and the largest city on the Tibetan Plateau. It is the political, economic, and cultural center of Qinghai Province with an average altitude of about 2,200 metres (7,200 ft)
The city lies in the Huangshui River valley, and owing to its high altitude, has a cold semi-arid climate. It is connected by rail to Lhasa, Tibet and connected by high-speed rail to Lanzhou, Gansu and Ürümqi, Xinjiang. It was an important link in the Silk Road. It continues to be an important rail and road link to the hinterlands of the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau.
Xining has also been dubbed the Summer Resort Capital of China owing to its cool summer. Qinghai is one of the least developed province in China but with the Government's West Development Policy, Xining is beginning to catch up with the development of other big cities in eastern China these recent years.
