Great trip in Center and North Xinjiang. Ablajan, our guide, was super professional. He studied the trip and drove us around for 10 days. He helped us to skip the crowded area, and he always organized extremely well the timing during the entire trip. His English level is great. Also on the personal side, Ablajan is a really nice and kind person. It was very interesting to discuss and spend time with him. His driving attitude is calm and relaxing. He also helped a lot to quickly pass all the check stations along the way. We absolutely recommend to have Ablajan as guide if you go to Xinjiang. Last but not least, he is driver and guide together and this helps to contain costs for such long trip. We will go back soon to visit the southern part and we will organize with him for sure

We have spent 9 days in northern Xinjiang (including Turpan) with Ablajan as our guide. It was a wonderful experience. Ablajan made us feel closer connection with Xinjiang. He is super organized and exactly feels and knows what we might like or not and he arranges the trip according to it. His English is perfect, he is always there to answer many questions. We also had an excellent choice of restaurants and food. After few days of the trip we did not have a feeling he’s our guide, he’s more as a friend. Big recommendation to everyone who plans to visit Xinjiang!

we had the pleasure to spend 8 days together with Ablajan. Due to his perfect organisation, his absolute dedication and empathy we experienced great nature, delicious food, very friendly people, local habits and specialities. We learned so much about history, culture and the actual changes going on and although we really were not lucky with the weather, we do not want to miss a single day of our trip. For those, who really want to dive into Xinjiang he is the guide we recommend. I was a bit scared travelling with a guide for such a long time - but time with Ablajan was flying and we had so much fun together.

After getting to know Ablajan almost 8 years ago as my guide and driver visiting the north of Xinjiang province we bacame very good friends and stayed in touch. This visit in May 2021 was organized very spontaneously to explore the to me unknown southern part of Xinjiang around Kashgar and Tashkurgan as well as a visit to Turpan and surroundings. We had a great time with Ablajan who knows the area very well and is very knowledgable on the history and customs of local culture. i highly recommend getting in touch with him if you plan a short or a longer trip to this specatacular and interesting part of the world to travel with him. He not only is a great guide but a safe driver and very reliable friend. Enjoy your travels and thanks again to Ablajan!!

This was our second trip exploring Xinjiang with Ablajan and it certainly brought back the wonderful memories. Our first 12-day private tour to Northern Xinjiang with Ablajan was so amazing that we simply had to come back to visit him and Xinjiang again. From decided on travel date, to booking, and hopped on plane, the trip was in shape in less than 10 days. Ablajan’s excellent knowledge and superb planning and coordination, made our trip run smoothly without hassle in this strict Covid preventive measures period. We enjoyed off beat trek away from tourists in Heavenly Lake and Ablajan brought a picnic table full of nuts, dates and tea for lunch. Enjoyed many amazing restaurants and food, specially ate among the herders in the Live stock market in Kashgar, the atmosphere was awesome. Marveled at Ancient village, Buddhist cave, ruin city, buggy ride in Kumtagh desert , hiked in grand canyon, explored grape drying houses in Turpan and Kuqa. Soaked ourselves in Kashgar’s colorful architecture and handicraft and tasted Kashgar shave ice! Hiked Sipton’s Arch. Drove along the Karakoram Highway and enjoyed all the different stunning and magnificent landscapes. Overall it was a wonderfully organized trip with beautiful scenery, great hikes, excellent food, most friendly people and fascinating culture in the region. Ablajan, Thank you for the most memorable vacation. Highly recommend Ablajan if you are looking for an unforgettable adventure! Places we had been on this 12 days trip: _ Urumqi / Heavenly Lake _ Turpan / Karez underground water system/ Jiao He Ancient City Ruin/ Imin Minaret/ Valley of Flaming Mountains/ Toyuk Village/Kumtagh Sand Dunes/ Turpan Old Town. _ Kuqa / local market/ trek inside Kuqa Grand Canyon/ Kuqa Kizil Caves/ Kuqa Old Town area . _ Kashgar /Kashgar night market/ Kashgar city / Kashgar Sunday market/ Livestock market/ Idka mosque / Handicraft street/ Apah Joha tombs/ Kashgar Old Town. _ Tashkurgan  / 314 Karakorum Highway/ Opal village/ Red Mountains/ Gez river and Gez check point/ Bulungkol lake/ White Sand Mountains/ Karakul Lake/ Muztagh Ata snow peak/ Konggar 9 peaks/ Tashkurgan Stone City/ Golden Wetland. _ Shipton’s Arch /Trekking to Arch.
