HUGE mountain range. Endlessly amazing.

This range is excellent. It's hundreds of kilometres long and much of it is still unexplored. There are few places on earth where this is true. One could spend a lifetime trekking... read more

See my review on TianChi, access is exactly the same as I outlined there. The lake is fenced off, you're limited to set wooden walkways and there is no opportunity to enjoy hiking.

This range is excellent. It's hundreds of kilometres long and much of it is still unexplored. There are few places on earth where this is true. One could spend a lifetime trekking around it's peaks and valleys.

Can't walk all the around but great walk to waterfalls. Facilities , shops were open till 7:30 in peak summer season. Walk to the monastery also worthwhile.

Arrived at the park entrance after about an hours drive outside of Urumqi. There, you must park your car and take the park's buses, which may stop at a few scenic points where you can hop on/ hop off. One of the stops, the Kazakh Folk Village, is kind of a tourist trap, offering pricey meals to your party in... More

As City dweller, it is very interesting and nice to get out and come to Tianshan's Mountain and relieve your stress and absorb as much fresh air as possible. If you can put down your hectic life of the City for a week in this place, your brain will function more active when you return back to City and work.

This beautiful lake are in the area of the Heavenly Mountains and looks more like the Swiss Alps, with towering snow-capped mountains and turquoise lakes, than somewhere in China. Take the 2 hour bus from Urumqi to Fukang, than a 15 min taxi ride to the entrance. Here starts the fun; you will buy an entrance ticket for 210 RNB,... More

Very cold, maybe 20C below at lake, but helped to keep away the crowds. We were on the first bus of two for the day. Maybe a total of 80 people for the day. Beautiful evergreen trees covered in snow. Lake was frozen and covered in snow. Quite and peaceful.

Tianshan goes east west and you will see it from many vintage points but driving on G217 from Narat and Bayanbulak Granssland to Kuqa (Kucha) or vise versa was an unbelievable experience. Some many gorgeous scenes one after another. Definitely worth the ride!

In my opinion, this lake is not as awesome as Yili, Sayram lake. Firstly upon my driver dropped me at main entrance, we bought our ticket include a bus ride into the national park. The bus only dropped us at a point. We have 2 options, take another tram to go towards it or walk. It was a long walk... More
