One of the most remoste border areas, where China coerges with Russia, Kazakstan and Mongolia. The best season to go is between June - September.

Our wonderful trip to Kanas Lake Geopark began when we booked a 4D/3N package from CYTS in Urumqi. It was a long 12 hour coach ride first to Bu'erqing for an overnight stay. The next morning, we had another 4 hours of travel to get to Kanas Lake Geopark. The scenery along the way was spectacular - in fact, we... More
