Located in the east of Jishi Town, Xunhua County, 190kms from Xining, the pond covers and area of 20hectares, and is 30meters in depth. This pleasant reserve is located in the mountains above the Yellow River. The focus if the reserve is Heaven Lake(Tian Chi), which is a sacred lake for both the local Salar Muslims and Tibetan Buddhists. The Salar have their origins in Samarkand and speak an isolated Turkic language, giving the nearby crossroad town of Jiezi a Central Asian feel.

The pond is surrounded by ancient trees of 550 species, including spruce and Huashan pines. Among the dense forest, there are rare animals and birds, such as blue sheep and snow cocks. An ideal health resort, the place has become a state nature reserve.
