Nanshan Grasslands

The Nanshan Grasslands (Baiyang gou) are a natural paradise, with scenery and surroundings similar to that at Heaven's Lake.

This area, 75km south of Urumqi city is located at the base of the Tian Shan mountain range. This is great land for hiking with gushing valleys and waterfalls falling down the hillsides and the ginseng herb growing on the hillside. The Kasakh people like to spend their summers here and travlers can take a horseback tour with a Kasak guide, over the mountains and stay in a traditional yurt.

How to get there: Transport to this area can be a problem. There are some buses from the north end of Renmin Park off Guangming Lu.
