    Baihaba village is known as the first village in the northwest and the first post in the northwest. It is located in Tierketi Township, Habahe County, Altay District, Xinjiang. It is located on the border line between China and Kazakhstan. It is only 1.5 kilometers away from East Silek, Kazakhstan. It is connected by national defense highway. Baihaba village is known as one of the eight most beautiful towns in China. We went to February with temperatures below 30 degrees and snow everywhere, as if we had entered a pure and flawless paradise in the fairy tale world. It arrived at 9 a.m., two hours slower than Beijing time. The whole village was still sleeping and the sun had just risen. The roofs of herdsmen are covered with thick snow. Except for the traces of cars on the land, tourists are reluctant to leave their footprints. They are afraid of destroying the natural beauty and breaking the quiet village.

    It's very convenient to get a car from the service center in Kanas. Baihaba's accommodation is very cheap and no booking is required. It's not a vacation for beds in standard rooms in peak season. The disadvantage is that the heating is insufficient, the best degree is to wake up in the morning, often at night. Bath condition, toilet is better than Kanas. Eat, it's expensive. Be prepared. It's better to eat where you live. It's cheaper.

    Baihaba - "First Village in Northwest China. Beautiful primitive villages, simple residents. Compared with other tourist areas, it has not been fully commercialized. After getting off the bus into the village, there are two barbecue stalls. They are brothers, Kazakhs and hospitable. The mutton on the table is now roasted without any supplements, and the price is cheaper than that in the village. Ps - "Aladdin's barbecue uncle's house, used to be "Where is Dad going" in the fourth season of the first room. It's a pity not to go to his home. Niu Er, walking freely in the village and not afraid of human beings, seems to recognize the way home and take a leisurely walk. Morning fog should be beautiful, a paradise for photographers, but unfortunately we did not photograph it. The night sky is beautiful and beautiful. You can see the Milky Way clearly. It must be a very romantic and beautiful thing to hold hands with your loved ones and look up at the stars at this time. ) The accommodation in the village is much better than I imagined. Although simple, there are independent bathrooms and heating, which is very satisfactory. Beautiful mountain village, I hope you can retain the existing beauty, not be commercialized. Also hope that the vast number of tourists cherish all the existing. Take care of the village, the environment, and have a pleasant journey.

    Baihaba village is one of the three Tuwa villages in the deep valley of Kanas. It is known as the first village in the northwest of Kazakhstan. It is 80 yuan an hour from the transfer center in Kanas scenic area to the Baihaba section by bus. It needs border control certificate to buy tickets. If you want to go to Baihaba, it is suggested that the border control certificate be free in advance at the police station of the household registration office before you travel. The local office also has to queue up and charge a fee. Baihaba Village is free of charge. It feels very similar to Hemu Village, but it is not beautiful without Hemu. There is a boundary marker No. 5 between China and Kazakhstan that can't be seen now. It's enough for the village not to spend half a day browsing.

    Baihaba has a kind of quiet, simple, casual and detached beauty, which is not only the reality but also the personal experience of our tourists. When you really enter the wooden house and the toilet, you will feel the Tuva people who live in remote areas stick to it and be satisfied with it. While praising the beauty, maybe we should think about what we can do.

    1. Transportation: To Baihaba, you can enter from Haba River County, the west gate of Kanas Scenic Area; or Jiadengyu-Kanas-Baihaba, the latter is in general the majority, the former is not open in off season and plain season. 2. The scenery of Baihaba is excellent, especially when climbing up the hillside and looking down, there are snow mountains on the left hand side and villages under it, occasionally drifting with mist, which is especially beautiful. 3. The No. 5 boundary marker was closed in 2015. 4. Look at the pictures. ~Also refer to my travel notes http://you.ctrip.com/travels/xinjiang100008/3496561.html.

    Baihaba heard that autumn is the most beautiful, but he can't wait. When he came to Kanas with his friends, he decided to leave it a day. There's a bus to Baihaba to the transfer center. It's about half an hour. Because there are so few people, we have to wait almost 50 minutes. The scenery on the way to Baihaba is very beautiful. I sit in the car and enjoy it slowly.
