2Itinerary

Day 01Urumqi, Kuitun

Destinations: Urumqi to Kuitun

Activities:

Upon reaching Urumqi, the capital of Xinjang, you will be met at the airport and have a short briefing on the itinerary of this tour. You will find very little difference between Urumqi and other large inland cities in China. But the region's exotic feel persists, and the markets, such as the Kashgar Market and Erdaoqiao Folk Handicrafts Market, certainly exude the atmosphere of the Silk Road. To save the driving time for next day, we would drive directly toward Buerjin right after the pick-up service.

Day 02Kuitun,

Destinations:

Activities:

Driving on to visit the Devil City, which is just 5 km(3 mi) by 5km, resembles a Herculean castle built in medieval Europe. Whenever the wind blows, the sky instantly turns pitch dark, with huge volumes of sand streaming in from nowhere, further drive Jiadengyu passing the small town of Buerjin, a town inhabited mostly by the Kazaks. Stay in the hotel at Jiadengyu.

Day 03, Kanasi

Destinations: Jiadengyu/Hemu /Black Lake/ Hanas Lake

Activities:

This morning we will begin our horse-riding tour. Your local guide will arrange the horse and horseman for the tour follows. Before starting the tour there is a brief horse-ride training. From then on, the area we will pass is the exceptionally beautiful scenery untouched by tourists. The primary forest, the crystal Hanas River and Hemu River zigzag its way to far, the old wood bridge left from the age. You could visit the local nomadic village. We will spend the nights at a charming lodge on the way or camping depending on whether and the speed we ride the horse. At arrival of Hanas Lake, stay in Huanhu Hotel or the similar European style lodge.

After breakfast, you could head to the north of the lake to the Fish Watching Pavilion on the peak of a mountain (2,030 m/6,660 ft). The pavilion will offer you an unobstructed view of the entire lake, tiers upon tiers of peaks, glaciers as well as the grand river valley where you trekked through the day before. After descending the mountain, you could go speed-boating along the 24 km (15 mi)-long lake. If you have enough energy left in the afternoon, you could either go fishing or participate in the Hanas Lake River Valley Drifting. Another good choice is taking the shuttle bus to visit other places include Crouching Dragon Bay ,the Moon Bay and Wild Duck Lake etc. The Crouching Dragon Bay , surrounded by a dense birch forest and set against a scenic backdrop of towering peaks, is a calm and serene sight. The lake is not alone here - a short distance away lies the mirror-flat Moon Bay , named after its perfect crescent shape. The Wild Duck Lake also deserves you to have a look, as wild duck, gooses and swans leisurely swim in the lake.
