Introduction

In a distant place, there is a beautiful girl... You may all be familiar with this song. Legend has it that Mr. Wang Luobin created this song after meeting the girl Zhuoma on the grasslands of Jinyintan. This was once a mysterious forbidden area, where China's first atomic and hydrogen bombs were born, and was the first nuclear weapons development base in China. The Jinyintan grassland is located in the west of Qinghai Lake, surrounded by the Qilian Mountains in the northeast, with an average altitude of 3200 meters, and is divided into Jintan and Yintan. A small river runs through it, with golden meadows of gold lily blooming on the northern bank of Jintan, and silvery meadows of silver lily blooming on the southern bank. In the summer, wildflowers bloom, and the golden and white flowers bloom in clusters, resembling golden and silver meadows, hence the name Jinyintan grassland.
