Trip Moments

Adam Yue   
The beautiful Tarim River, originated by the Tianshan Mountains, flows through many southern states, crosses the Gobi and desert areas, and irrigates many coastal cities. It is the largest inland river in China and the most varied river. The river flowing through the Bazhou section irrigates the vegetation on both sides of the strait. The forests along the coast are interwoven and the villages are scattered. It is a particularly beautiful section along the Tarim River.
walking by the river, or stopping, watching the beautiful river quietly, will be attracted by the changing landscape of the coast, shocked by its unique beauty and appearance, and it will have a love for it.

This river passes through many ethnic minority villages and irrigates the land along the coast, making the land fertile. Surrounded by forests, straw and incense, a desert oasis, a vibrant scene.

The best way to see the Tarim River is to go along the Tarim River on the outskirts of Korla and drive along the beautiful river to see the scenery. From the tall birch trees to the beautiful wheat fields, and then changed into the Hu Yanglin, which is full of vicissitudes and strength, the scenery is endless, and the beauty of the river is vividly displayed.

[Traffic]
Tarimu River passes by many places in Bayingo, and it is best to drive along the river to see the scenery. You can also walk by the river yourself and experience its beautiful appearance more realistically;

[Tips]
Korla City, heading for the upper reaches of the Tarim River, this area is better managed and the scenery is more beautiful.
