Absolute Xinjiang Group Photos

Xinjiang  Resourcefully rich and ethnically diverse, this province attracts many adventurous travelers, keen to discover something about the western China.

Xinjiang contains the driest, hottest and coolest spots in China. The longest inland river, the Tarim River is here; the lowest area, the Aidin Lake in the Turpan Basin and the largest desert in China can also be found in Xinjiang.

Xinjiang is famous for the Silk Road. The ethnic groups such as Kirghs, Kazakhs, Tajiks, Hui, Mongols and Daur all inhabit here. Though a great part of the province is covered by vast expanses of deserts and mountains, Xinjiang cultivate extremely sweet fruits.

The Tianshan Mountain range divides Xinjiang into two parts. Urumqi, Yining and Hami are in the north of Tianshan and Turpan, Kashgar and Hotar are in the south. The landscape is incredibly diverse, and as you travel across the province the scenery changes from desert to lush green Alpine hills in one hour, and to valleys and to valleys and Turkish settlements in the next.
