There are many beautiful places in Xinjiang and most of them are remote and take time to get there. Kanas National Geopark is one of those. Spent a total of three nights in and around the park and it was well worth it. The hotels outside the park are great but rooms with farmers inside are basic at best. Glad... More

Our visit is in mid May where the snows has all melted and temperature was just right. We're told that in winter the snow can be as thick as 1,5 meters where temperature drops well below 0. Kanas lake itself was breathtaking and I wish we have a personal guide to take us around to trek further into the various... More

From the town center, there are guides with their 4x4 jeep ready for hired. It charge RMB120 per person per day and max is RMB600 per Jeep. It is the only transport... More

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
