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

We rented a vehicle with a driver from Urumqi. We left around 3 pm. The plan was to spent the night in Burqin. From Burqin, it will be a 3 hour-drive to get to Kanasi. 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...

We visited in end September and saw the golden yellow autumn foliage, very beautiful. We were stunned by the gorgeous scenery. The colour variations are lovely as there are are four main types of pine trees. Suggest to pay the extra CNY 60 to get up to the hill top to get a full view of the lake. The park... More

First, let me say that the half day our tour agent, Old Road Tours, organized for us at Kanas Lake was hardly sufficient to see the lake. You are required to board a bus from the tourist center at Jiadengyu. It takes an hour to get to the Kanas tourist center. From here, you change to connecting buses to Fish... More

It is similar to Jiuzaigou. Water decorated the world like green diamond. You can sit there, walking around, taking photos, feeling the beauty of life. You will find most tasty tomato and cucumber in the world there. Make sure if you live in the house of minorities, not to eat the snacks in their living room.
