Visited the temple which is built up a small mountain and as one climbs new buildings are presented. This a typical Budd's temple and there are several different buildings to enjoy. It's medium sized and as one climbs city views are also revealed. Best done on a clear sunny day to get the best views. It's free, but one can make donations and buy incense and candles to light and pray. The temple had a nice range of potted flowers in August and takes a about 1-2 to see most of the buildings. Depending on where you hotel is located the temple is near a. Is stop and there are lots of taxis nearby if needed.

Avoid weekends if possible as it's rather busy then. Many shaded areas with mature trees and benches and places to picnic. It's a steep walk up to the top of the mountain but a taxi or tuk-tuk can take you to the top. The piped music does rather spoil the tranquility though.
Pleasant enough place to enjoy and ice-cream and wander around the pathways.
No entry charge if you arrive on foot, I'm not sure if the car park is free though.

The Nan Shan Park is a place for families to go have picnics or play, but during the week it's also a nice place to walk or go jogging. Specially from May to October it's a place to enjoy with others. There is also a restaurant where you can order tea and Chinese dishes, but it's rather expensive.

It's free, fun and relaxing. If you only have 30 minutes, great, check out the view and get a sense of the layout of Xining. If you have 2 or 3 hours to spare, even better. Explore and discover the Tibetan prayer flags, the little monastery (with ridiculously friendly monks), a mosque (with one of my favorite gates in all of China), and some other hidden treasures like a beautiful sunflower field.

Xining is not very beautiful or interesting city. But here on Xining Nanshan Mountain you will find the very tranquil place and wonderful panorama of the city. Just spend on the mountain 20-30 minutes and you will not disappointed. Unfortunately the beautiful mosque in Chinese style is closed.
