Riders are taking the "holy water" from the River source

On Feb. 22, 2011, Qinghai Provincial Sports Bureau will organize adventure activities at the source of the Yangtze River as part of a series of activities marking the 10th anniversary of Tour of Qinghai Lake.

The adventure include 20 riders' bicycle ride, hot air balloon flying, 20 people’s hiking, water taking ceremony at the Yangtze River source and so on.

Qinghai Province, hailed as "the source of three rivers" and "Chinese water tower", is an important ecological conservation area. The Three Rivers’ Head plays a particularly important role in ecology.

The activity is aimed to promote Qinghai’s ecological strategies, its achievements on ecological protection and construction, and disseminate low-carbon, scientific fitness concepts and environmental knowledge. It will call on people to protect the ecological environment and build a better homeland. By this activity, the bureau wishes to explore the development approach for winter sports tourism in Qinghai and improve brand image of Tour of Qinghai Lake.
