To get started, open this map of the walk.
There are two good starting points for this walk:
Option 1: Head east from the West Bus Station (西车站 Xī Chēzhàn), then south at the big flyover (road G212 on the map). You’ll go first under a railway bridge (shared taxis for Linxia start here), and then reach a railway level crossing, passing 4 or 5 mosques along the way.
Ling Ming Tang Mosque (灵明堂拱北 Língmíngtáng Gǒngběi) is a couple of km to the south of Gōnglín Lù (工林路). If you're feeling energetic it is well worth a detour (or a separate trip in itself). You could also consider using a taxi to take you up, and either wait for you or let you walk the return leg.
