Kanas Lake

The Kanas is a magical and appealing place for all ages. It is an enchanting Mongolian name which means "beautiful and mysterious". It borders on Mongolia, Russia, and Kazakstan at longitude 86'54" east and latitude 48'75" - 49'11" north, like a feather tail stuck up at the northwest corner of rooster-shaped China's domain. The Kanas has unique geographic position, favorable natural conditions and strange biological composition. The region, as a rare typical area with European ecological system in China, shapes a lot of peculiar and splendid biological and geographical phenomena, featured by undulating hills, continuous ice-capped peaks, criss-crossing ravines and gullies, dense forest and a great disparity elevation. The Kanas, in many people's mind, simply means the Kanas Lake, where above is the blue sky, dotted with elegant white cloud: below is a pool of green water, as limpid as a mirror: around are grand glaciers, pure white snow, lush forest, luxuriant pasture and gurgling streams, adding radiance and beauty to each other as if they were dissolved into one body. So one can not help feeling excited at such a marvelous sight.

Turpan Grape Valley

Turpan Grape Valley is well known for its plant species diversity and high quality grapes. It is located at the Northeast of Turpan city, some 10 kilometers away from it. Grape Valley is a cooler world inside the Fire Island of Turpan, and a palace built with green grapes. The valley is about 8 kilometers long, with a stream running among it. There are over 600 varieties of grapes in turpan including the seedless white grape, red grape, Manaizi, of which the seedless white grape is the best. Every local resident has built a shade house called “Yam Housing” for sunning grapes, which seems like a huge bamboo cage full of holes, looking from far away. Grapes are dried naturally inside the house and taste fragrant and sweet. The green of Grape Valley and the red of crater form a sharp comparison; it can not help but be filled with emotion, in addition to water, which can bring life to the parched land.
