Through the mist, a splash of gorgeous color appears on the mountain. I suddenly start to feel that Kanas' Fairy Bay is like an entrapping paradise, making you want to keep your eyes open to watch, or close them to slip into dreams.

Day 0

Arrive in Urumqi,Xinjiang


Our guide will welcome you at Urumqi train station / airport, drive to hotel in Urumqi.

Arrival Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous region, the biggest province and region in China, and the farthest city to the ocean in the world. Pick up from airport and transfer to hotel.

Urumqi is a city where all kinds of nomads congregate, and also the largest concentration of gragrances in the ancient Western Region. People say that a vast region and strong challenge to survival lead men to be highly motivated, and women to be fond of beatuiful adornments and enticing perfumes. These are characteristics of the city to this day. Urumqi is complicated -coarse and fine, intense and mild, southern accent with norhern inflection – a place where all these things can be felt.

Day 1

Fly to Kanas, Kanas Day Tour.

Kanas National Forest Park.

Take a early flight in the morning, after arrive at Kanas airport, we will visit Kanas, it is known as “the swizterland in China”. Located over 200 km northwest and in the boundary of Burqin County, Altay. This morainal lake is about 10 times larger than Tianchi(Heavenly Lake), hides itself in the depths of Altay Mountain. The snow melts and flows into the Kanas River, and forms the “Kanas” Lake in the lower reaches. It is 1,374 meters above sea level, 24 km in length and 1.6-2.9 km in width, covering an area of more than 40 sq km. The deepest place is 177.5 meters. “Kanas” means “beautiful, fertile and mysterious” in Mongolian. Its primitive landscape attracts a lot of tourists in spite of the long distance. The Kanas Lake has been listed as a state nature reserve.

The Kanas Lake is known for its bright and colorful scenery. Tourists can climb to the Guanyu(Fish-Watching) Pavilion on the top of Halate Mountain, 2,030 meters above sea level, in the early morning and enjoy the beautiful sight of the lake. The lake looks like a huge mirror, rippling sometimes and reflecting the sunlight irrgularly. Standing there, you can look into the distance and see the Youyi(Friendship) Peak standing 4,347 meters above sea level on the Sino-Russian border.

Moon bay(Yueliangwan) is the highlight of Kanas beautiful senery. The lake is like a half moon slowly running through the forest, the color of water changees all the time. It’s really a pleasant thing to hike along the lake.

Day 2

Kanas half-day Tour, drive to Hemu

Kanas half-day tour. Shenxianwan bay. Hemu Village.

After check out the hotel, we will visit Kanas again for half day. Lake Kanas is a rain factory, espcially in autumn, when the sky resembles a clean basin that occasionally leaks water. Of course, often and seemingly for no reason, rain bursts forth. There’s no need to run from this kind of rain as it will stop before one can find shelter, as if it has been ordered to stop- everything goes back to normal quickly.

A Dreamy Shenxianwan bay: Thick white mist flickers over a dark blue lake, which makes people wonder: Is it rising from the lake, or is it descended clouds? Through the mist, a splash of gorgeous color appears on the mountain. I suddenly start to feel that Kanas’ Fairy Bay is like an entrapping paradise, making you want to keep your eyes open to watch, or close them to slip into dreams.

Day 3

Hemu day tour

Hemu village, Old bridge milk tea house.

A free day at Hemu village. Some people say that Hemu is a place forgotten by God. It sits quietly under Friendship Peak, along the bank of the Kanas River. It doesn’t have any brick or concrete structures, with the paved road stopping at the entrance to the village. The village has refused tarmac and concrete, and the smell of dung drifts between the houses, all the color of wood. This “natural” village emits smoke from its chimneys even during the desolate fall and winter seasons, like some kind of fairy tale.
