In the shallow snow of the mountain, there are mushroom like silkworms, which are called snow mountain meadow plants. There are also precious medicinal materials - Saussurea involucrata, and a kind of snow mountain grass growing under wind eroded rocks.
Therefore, Saussurea involucrata, canzhui and xueshancao are also known as the "three friends of winter" on the snow line of Qilian Mountain.

"Qilian Mountain Grassland"
The history of Qilian Mountains seems so rough and even cruel, but the essence of Qilian Mountains is absolutely romantic. Qilian Mountain is an ancient Hun language, which means "mountain of heaven". So far, the Yao Aoer people, the direct descendants of the Huns who are nomadic here, still call Qilian Mountain "Tenggeli Daban", which also means "mountain of heaven".
At the foot of Qilian Mountain, there is a grassland with the most abundant water and grass, which is summer Tara (also known as Huangcheng beach, Huangcheng beach and Dacaotan). It used to be the pasture of the Huns, the Uighurs and the Mongolian King Kuo Duan Khan in the Yuan Dynasty. In summer, Tara is a grassland with four distinct seasons and favorable weather. Liang Fen of the Qing Dynasty wrote a famous geographical book "a brief account of the border of the Qin Dynasty", which said: "the lush grass is not found in the Great Wall, but only in the inland." The author regards this place as inland because nomads and farmers were fighting for this area at that time. In the Tibetan epic Gesar, it is said that this grassland is "Golden Lotus Grassland". Both yaoaoer people and Mongols call it "summer Tara", which means "golden Ranch".
The summer Tala grassland in Qilian Mountains is surrounded by Daying beach in the east of Yanzhi mountain. The climate of Yanzhi mountain is warm, the forest is dense, the hill is covered with silver white Hari Canna flowers, and the Sichuan Grassland at the foot of the mountain is endless, the sky is grey, and the wild is vast. In summer, the Xizhang Dongzhang grassland in Sunan Yugur Autonomous County, east of Tara, is full of golden harigana flowers, and the whole grassland is golden. The warm and kind Yao Aoer herdsmen, carrying their own white tents and black tents, drove the herds, and wandered in the golden sea of flowers during the whole summer camp
The primeval forest scenic spot of Qilian Mountain is even more charming. After the beginning of summer, there is an endless green ocean in the forest. In the primeval forest area of Qilian Mountain, there are 157 thousand hectares and more than 2 million cubic meters of forest resources. It is one of the larger forest areas in Qinghai Province. There are spruce, juniper, poplar and other trees, as well as whiplash, black thorn, willow and other shrubs. In addition, in the dense forest and snow mountains of Qilian Mountain, there are many wandering deer groups running or wandering among them, with strong wild interest and beautiful ecology.
The four seasons of Qilian Mountain are never very clear. Spring is not like spring, and summer is not like summer. The so-called "Qilian snow in June" is the portrayal of Qilian mountain climate and natural landscape.
The valleys and depressions in the Qilian Mountains are more than 3000 meters above sea level on average, while the peaks of the Qilian Mountains are 4000 to 5000 meters above sea level. Walking on ice and snow all the way, the cold wind is piercing. But it has the beauty of nature that you can enjoy. Every peak of Qilian Mountain is magnificent, and it is called "towering stone bone, wrong bird path". These strange and angular ridges made of ice, snow and stone are like carving with a giant axe. As for the wide and long glaciers formed by the snow all the year round on the high mountains, it is a unique feature of snow mountain! Glaciers do not melt for many years, just like the white "hada" hanging on the snow mountain gods. They lie in various forms on the snow mountain, like a white tiger hiding, like a silver snake winding around; in the midday sunlight, like diamonds emitting thousands of rays; in the glow of the color dye, the glacier has the beauty that can not be described!
There are many rivers in the Qilian Mountains. This is because there are countless glaciers in the snow covered mountains all the year round. When the warm season comes, the sun will always melt away a layer of ice and snow. Coupled with the rainfall in the forest belt, the abundant water resources are undoubtedly the source of endless rivers.
Valley depression area, a piece of wild willow, poplar, as well as clusters of Robinia pseudoacacia. But they are old, vigorous and twisted, so old that you can't estimate their rings. The babaohe River, which is sparkling among them, has a very disharmonious temperament. But it doesn't hurt the elegance of babaohe.

In the early morning of the next day, the thick cloud and fog are like strands of silver silk around the mountain waist, and suddenly turn into rolling green smoke, floating among the mountains. Inadvertently, it will slide across your face, fall into your heart, immersive, like a dream. The sky is clear and the thick fog between the OPP mountains disappears without a trace.
