The Hudong Stud Sheep Farm on the eastern shore of Qinghai Lake is a leading national livestock-breeding farm. In 1982, it was designated as one of the provincial level tourist attractions around the lake. Within the farm area, there is a picturesque small marshy lake known as Erhai Lake, which came into being as the water level in the Qinghai Lake dropped.
A stone tablet dedicated to the god of Qinghai Lake, which dates back to 1726 in the Qing Dynasty, is a valuable piece of cultural heritage and evidence to the grand lake-worshipping ceremonies in the history of Qinghai.
