Kashgar & Kashgar market (not Sunday) worth the detour?

Hi,

I will be joining a tour that starts from Urumqi and excludes Kashgar. And if I were to detour, I will be visiting Kashgar on my own for 2- 3 days prior to the tour, and hence I will not be in Kashgar on Sunday, where the Sunday market is a sight worth seeing.

So, may someone enlighten me please...

(1) Is Tianchi (Heavenly Lake) comparable to Karakul Lake?

(2) Can we see sights of Kashgar in other locations along the Silk Route? I will cover Urumqi, TianChi, Turpan, Dunhuang, Jiayuguan, Xiahe, Lanzhou, Xian.

(2) And Is Kashgar worth the detour on a non Sunday after all, since the flight ticket is rather costly?

(3) How many days is it recommended for visit in Kashgar? And what are the must see sights around tha area?

Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
