Banma County is a county of Qinghai Province, China. It is under the administration of Golog Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. The Red Army of the Chinese Communist Party passed through Banma in 1936 during the Long March. The seat of Baima county is in Sailaitang Town (赛来塘镇).
It is home to Bennak, a Nyingma monastery of the Pelyul tradition, founded in 1824, which was visited by noted female teacher Sera Khandro. A 1992 work indicates that the 22 monasteries in the county are predominantly Nyingma.
