Beautiful scenery with easy access for those on tour buses and also options for individual hikers to get away from it all. Not easy to reach, which may help keep it peaceful.

Language can hardly depict beauty of the scenery. Come and appreciate with your eyes. Best to visit in October, when the populus trees are golden yellow and it's not too cold. The tourists services are no mature enough though. You may try your luck at inns or eateries.

Absolutely stunning scenery with magnificent views on the drive to the park and within the park. Unfortunately the prevailing attitude of the locals in Aletai and the employees inside the park was extremely disappointing. Food prices outside of the park are a sham and the attitude of the park employees was very rude and indifferent.The only saving grace was the... More

The Kanas Geopark deserves a good whole day of exploration, as there are numerous scenic spots. The three areas ( Crouching Dragon Bay, Moon Bay and Immortal Bay) along the Kanas River should be hiked to enjoy the many vistas they offer. Give the Kanas Lake Boat Cruise a miss, as it offers nothing unique for the 1 hour RMB60... More

The landscape changes considerably from city buildings to the desert dunes outside Urumqi, then to the mountain passes into vast grasslands & pine forests getting... More

this is the last frontier in Xinjiang! access is hard and expensive. so, u should join the group tour from Ulumqi. it takes 4-day and costs about 300RMB(no meals) to 650RMB(including meals). foods around this area r expensive. so u should take 650RMB tour. tour include a lot of options. almost all options r not worth. but, rainbow beach near...
