Tianchi:

Spend a day here (as your Silk Road trip does) and you'll almost forget you're visiting one of the driest regions on earth. The lake at Tianchi (literally, "Heaven Lake") belies the arid deserts just beyond and below the alpine forests and meadows that line its shores.
China,Tianchi

Spend a night here (as your Silk Road trip does!) and you'll experience what "day-trippers" miss: starry, starry nights; peace and solitude; campfire sing-alongs; fishing at dusk; and the option of sleeping in a traditional Kazakh yurt! This Xingjiang province retreat is just a few miles northeast from the modern, bustling city of Urumqi - but a thousand miles away in its quiet serenity.
China,Tianchi
Daytime activities at Tianchi include leisurely walks or mountain hikes along the lake's perimeter. Horseback riding and boat rides are also available. Your roamings are likely to bring you in touch with the local Kazakhs, a largely nomadic people who rely mostly on sheep breeding for their livelihood. Today, tourism is a growing source of income for the Kazakhs.
