About Kanas Lake Scenic Area

Kanas Lake is tucked away deep in the mountains and forests of Burqin County, nearly 800 kilometers away from the capital of Xinjiang. At the gorgeous and fertile lakeside, you can see the clear and tranquil surface of the lake. The lake's color changes often with the seasons and weather. The area around Kanas Lake is dense with dragon spruce and Faber’s fir trees, and when autumn arrives, the forest shows off different colors of gold, deep red, and dark green.

    Kanas Scenic Spot is still very worthwhile to go, although tickets are expensive, but look at what investment can understand, the best way to go to Kanas is to buy a night train from Urumqi to Beitun City sleeping hard, get up and get off the next morning, then rent a car to Kanas, or transfer to Buerzin to take a bus to Kanas. Scenic spot! Before you go, you'd better ask if you can go to Baihaba's boundary markers and grasses, and you should be optimistic about the weather forecast. Because if you want to go to see the sunrise, you can take a day to see the sunrise and live there. Although the accommodation conditions are normal, it is not too cheap. The average two-person room is between 260 and 320 (the price should be in the peak season), but when you see the sunrise in the morning and see the sunshine covering the village, you feel that everything is worth it! Kanas Lake is also beautiful. The water will change according to the season. Clear Lake water, fresh air, quiet forest, give people a sense of paradise, let people really want to live where they do not go! The best time is from the end of April to the middle of May in spring, from the middle of June to the end of July in summer and from the middle of September to October in autumn. Winter is supposed to be a place for the wealthy to relax, because the snow blocked the mountains, and if you want to go in, it costs a lot of money, not to mention eating and living! _________ But Kanas's beauty is worth his ticket! The second entry ticket is 285 (including interval bus, Wolong Bay, Moon Bay, Shenxian Bay, Kanas Lake), and then there are 120 interval bus and ticket fees for the fishing platform. The interval bus for Baihaba is 289 or so, and the interval bus for Hemu should be 289 or so. This is all the admission fees of Kanas Scenic Spot, and the other is to eat, depending on everyone, the whole scenic area can play for about three days! If the weather is good, Wolong Bay, Moon Bay, Shenxian Bay, Guanyutai for one day, and then come out to live. The next day, go to the interchange center to buy tickets to Baihaba, go to Baihaba, almost half a day, and buy tickets to Hemu directly after returning. Then you can see the sunset of Hemu, live in Hemu at night, see the sunrise in the morning, and return to the village after seeing it. Eat breakfast, then walk around and play around the Hemu. You can leave at noon. You can go back to Kanas scenic spot from Hemu and then to Buerjin or Altay or Beitun.

    I went to Kanas on September 13, because there were so many people coming in time for Ubang Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival. If you come in the peak season, you'd better book a hotel in advance, or there's no place to stay. Come at 6:30 in the morning, go to the queue to buy tickets after breakfast and pack up your belongings. At the ticket office at 8:00, we queue up to buy tickets. A queue of people queue up to enter the scenic spot, so it won't waste time. There are no tickets for the next day. If you don't think you can buy tickets for 30 yuan more early, you won't have to get up so early the next day. After entering the scenic spot, we suggest going to Shenxian Bay first, because in the morning there will be fog in Shenxian Bay, which looks like a fairyland. Some visitors will miss the beautiful scenery if they go directly to Kanas Lake and go out to Shenxian Bay. We walk all the way from Shenxian Bay to Kanas Lake, and many beautiful sceneries in the middle are worth seeing.

    On May 8, 2017, Xinjiang Altay/Bulzin/Kanas Scenic Area/Eye drove to the parking lot of Kanas Scenic Area, the last pure land of mankind at 12:00 noon. The ticket of the scenic area was 185 yuan, and the bus was 100 yuan. Xiaoliao Shifu and four of us took the interchange bus to the tourist interchange center. On the way, we would pass Sandaowan on the Kanas River and the interchange bus would arrive at the scenic spot in about 45 minutes. Four people spent $204 at the transfer center and lunch near the tourist center. Tonight's accommodation in the old village "Shuanghu Villa"$300, located in a small Tuva settlement in the lake scenic area, we contacted "Boss" to put our luggage in place and started a tour of the lake. Walking from the old village to Kanas Lake, all the houses here are primitive cabins surrounded by mountains, along the village is a circular road, the cabins are neatly arranged on both sides of the road, there are schools and shops, each cabin has its own yard, so that visitors can see cattle and sheep leisurely grazing in the grassland, behind is an open hill, covered with verdant trees, but the top of the mountain is covered with white. Snow. From the "Bailin Fast Food" to the Kanas Lake along the trestle road, the dock on the other side of the lake is docked with cruise boats, and Guanyutai is also on the top of the hill on the other side, walking along the lake to the old bridge of the Kanas River, enjoying the beautiful scenery of blue sky, lake water and snow ridges, feeling the magical Kanas, close contact with Kanas Lake, and take pictures along the trestle road. At this time, there is no sigh.

    Kanas Village is a rare "Pure Land on Earth" in the world. Nowadays, it has been broken by tourists and tourists, but its beauty is so beautiful that any superb photography can hardly be displayed. The photos taken at hand will make the people who have seen it admire it. It has become the most attractive scenic spot in Xinjiang. Every day in the peak season, thousands of tourists are welcome. The three sections of Kanas Tour are very beautiful on foot, one section is to go to the cruise ship wharf, whether or not you take a cruise ship, because you can see a swampy land full of Russian customs; the second section is the wooden trestle road drifting to Kanas Village (Interval Bus Terminus), the rumbling sound of the water is very shocking; the third section is the wooden trestle road from Moon Bay to Wolong Bay. The wooden trestle road should go downstream lightly from upstream to downstream. Pine, save energy, and the scenery changes with the water potential. Main attractions: Shenxian Bay morning mist, Moon Bay, Wolong Bay, Yaze Lake, Kanas Lake and along the way forest meadow and other natural scenery.

    The scenic spots in Kanas are first Sanwan in sequence, with morning fog curling, colorful and changeable rivers as the point of view; then Yutai overlooking Kanas Lake; and then Tuwa villages in Baihaba and Hemu, experiencing folk customs and watching sunrise and sunset. Tickets for scenic spots include only tickets to and from Jiadengyu. Besides Sanwan, other scenic spots sell tickets separately. They also include interval buses. The rest are only on foot. In Kanas, we need to have a better budget and a better time. Because of transportation and other reasons, it is difficult to be completely at will. During the long holidays, there should be plans, because the flow control will cause many people to queue outside Jiadengyu for a long time. Even if it is expensive and inconvenient, Kanas is still worth visiting.

It has an elevation of 1374 meters, an area of 45.73_2, an elevation of 1181.5 meters, a depth of 188.5 meters and a water storage capacity of 5.38 billion cubic meters. It is the deepest moraine barrier lake in China. It is located in the dense forests of Altay Mountains in Altay. Alpine lakes, inland freshwater lakes. Kanas Lake Scenic Spot is composed of mountains, rivers, forests, lakes, grasslands and other exotic natural landscapes, historical and cultural relics such as Genghis Khan's Western Expedition Army Station, ancient rock paintings and unique folk customs of Mongolian Tuva people. It has camel neck bay, discolored lake, Wolong Bay, Yutai and other major scenic spots, which have extremely high tourism, natural protection, scientific investigation and historical and cultural value. There are several wonders in Kanas Lake, one is the long levee of driftwood, which is drifting against the water by the strong valley wind and gathering in the upper reaches of the lake; the other is the huge "water monster" in the lake, which often drags horses from the lakeside drinking water into the water and adds some mystery to Kanas. Some people think that a kind of big red fish (Philodendron salmon), a local specialty, is making a mistake; the third is the rain. A wonder that happens only after sunshine - Kanas Sea of Clouds and Buddha Light.

    Three sections of hiking scenery are recommended, one section is to go to the cruise ship wharf, whether or not you take a cruise ship, because you can see a swamp, full of Russian flavor; the second section is the wooden trestle road drifting to Kanas Village (Intersection Terminal), the rumbling sound of water, very shocking; the third section is the wooden trestle Road from Moon Bay to Wolong Bay! Wooden trestle road from upstream to downstream is relatively easy to walk, save physical strength, and the landscape changes with the water potential!

    Mid-late September is the most beautiful season in Kanas. Self-driving can not enter the scenic area. It can only stop at the tourist center of Jiadengyu. The ticket for the scenic area is 185 yuan, and the ticket for the scenic area is 120 yuan. If you don't stay in the scenic area on that day, you have to go up the next day to buy a second-in ticket with the conductor. It's only ten yuan expensive. Kanas usually can't last a day. When we went there, all the rooms in the scenic spot were full in peak season, so we only booked the second-entry tickets to the inn outside the scenic spot. It took an hour to drive from the gate section of the scenic spot to the transfer center in the mountain scenic spot, to the transfer center and then to disperse the scenic spot, we had to buy another ticket, to Guanyutai 60 yuan, to Baihaba 80 yuan. Because we arrived in the afternoon, we went to Guanyutai first, and changed places in the scenic spot. Half an hour's drive from the center to Guanyutai, a thousand steps from the center to the top of Guanyutai, and a bird's-eye view of Kanas. The next day, I went to Baihaba in the morning. In the afternoon, I returned to the transfer center and went down the hill. Shenxian Bay, Moon Bay and Wolong Bay were all along the way down the hill. The downhill scenic area cars could stop at each bay and take pictures of the back scenic area cars down the hill, between the three bays. There are also walkways. The walkway between Shenxian Bay and Moon Bay is three kilometers long and passes through the woods. It is suggested that the walkway from Moon Bay to Wolong Bay is only one kilometer long and half of the walkways along the river have the most beautiful scenery.

    It's a bit remote for the mainland people, but it's worth a visit! Simply tell us how to play after entering Kanas Scenic Spot, take a commuter bus directly to the Visitors'Service Center and transfer to Kanas Lake by boat. After the boat ride, go to the Visitors' Center and look at the Fish Platform, then go back to the Visitors'Center to see Wolong Bay, Moon Bay... Final return to the mountain gate to finish the journey
