The backdrop of almost white sand dunes reflected on the surface of the lake makes this a spectacular sight. It is a great time to stop and stretch the legs and take many photos of this lake. Not to be missed.

Another must seeing scenery on the way from Kashgar to Tashkorgan. Not far from the Karakul lake, but no less worth to stop than Karakul lake. Blue water and golden dune out of your imagination. Never forgettable.

You truly need to stop and get out and stand on the edge in order to absorb the incredible beauty Don't just drive past it with out spending at lease 2 hour away from other people and your vehicle

Obviously it is dependent on the weather! We passed it one way in excellent weather and were properly rewarded: breathtakingly beautiful views of the lake, without a ripple on the water with amazing reflections. On the way back it was windy and nothing of the...More
