area is not very popular scenic spots in Xinjiang. But I think this
place is great place for tourist to see the beautiful nature of Xinjjiang
Tianshan mountains.Wezixia is located at 35 kilometers north of the
Yiwu County area.It is so name Weizixia because the Weizixia is just
between the gully of the mountains and everywhere in the valley the
reed and wild almond trees can be found easily.There is water in the
river during four seasons even in winter times.There are many Salix
lanifera living in the banks of the rivers and also abundant grass.
There also many wild apricot t and trees are luxuriant. The clear stream
is rapid. Scenery is elegancy. Especially a place called Youledun,which
is 11.3 kilometers of village government. This place is the small basin
located at hilly area and it is about 2 square kilometers. There is
a small reservoir down there. Surrounding area of that palce are living
wth many Chinese Tamarix and reeds, phoenix tree,and brushwood Latin
names should be Nitraria tangutorum Bobr. And Zygophyllaceae.Climate
is quite amenity.Sometimes you even can smell the fragrance of the melons.Not
only one can see the whisht of the greenness but also you can see view
of the Extensive desert.All The plowland of the Weizixia village are
concentrated at valley the lower reaches of the Yiwu river. There are
more than ten thousands of wild apricot trees distributed all over the
valley. The oldest apricot trees can be 200 years old.Every year from
spring time when the flower of the apricot blossom out to the autumn
when trees are covered with sweet fruits that attract numbers tourists
to come.but actually this place are not many tourist from other province
of china or foreigner and mainly for local tourist. So Jason strongly
recmend that you should go there to visit.The best time to visit there
is April and may annually.During this time , the flower of the apricot
trees bloom.The thousands of butterflies forgather in the valley and
dancing elegantly.That all makes people relaxed and happy.So people
will have much more enjoyment and forget to go back home ...The visitors
can fully appreciate natural views that combines the mountains and waters
and people and trees and flowers and butterflies.
