About Kanas Tuva Village

Kanas Tuva Village, situated within the Kanas Lake Scenic Area, is a small Tuvan village south of the lake. All of the houses in the village are small wooden shacks of the ancient Dzungarian style. The village is surrounded by a forest as well as rows of mountains. The scenery that the village offers is no less beautiful than those offered by the famous Hemu Village and Baihaba Village next door. Visitors are recommended to come for a sightseeing tour, take pictures, and experience Tuvan folk culture.

    The village of Kanas Tuva is located in the Kanas Valley 2-3 kilometers on the South Bank of Kanas. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains and waters, and has a beautiful environment. It is the only way to visit Kanas Lake from Bulzin County, with an elevation of 1390 meters. Tuva people are an ancient people who live by nomadism and hunting. They are brave and tough, good at riding, skiing, singing and dancing. For nearly 400 years, they have settled on the banks of Kanas Lake. Now only about 2500 people are classified as Mongolians. Tuva people basically maintain a relatively primitive way of life. Wooden houses built from logs are scattered in villages, bridges, running water, smoke curling, and milk and wine fragrant. The simple village scenery is as charming as Kanas Lake. It is said that Tuva people are particularly fond of drinking, not drunk, drunk, lying on the horse's back, allowing the horse to go home.

    I saw this place before I went, but I couldn't imagine it for a while. I didn't find her beauty until I went there and looked at it from the perspective of distance, proximity and depth. Tuva villages are divided into old villages and new villages. The old villages are very close to the transfer center on the way from the transfer center to the lakeside. The new villages are on the way from the transfer center to Guanyutai, a little far away, about 20 minutes'walk. We live in a new village, although a little farther away, but also has her unique charm. First of all, there are not so many tourists, very empty and quiet, looking back at the hillside of Guanyutai, the new village at the foot of the riverside mountain is so peaceful and unparalleled; secondly, because the place is relatively large, every inn has a large yard, and also keeps horses, dogs, chickens and other animals, sitting in the yard, bathing in the sunset, and so on. It's a beautiful enjoyment; thirdly, geographically speaking, it's a little far from the transfer center, but if you want to go on foot to watch Yutai, it's a good thing to be closer; lastly, the new village is bigger, and it's not as popular as the old one. It's easier to order, cheaper and more cost-effective.

    Located in Tuva village near Kanas, Tuva people live here, which should be the 57th ethnic group in China. Some people say that Tuva people are the descendants of Mongolian people, others say that they are descendants of foreign Tuva people. Tuva people wear Mongolian robes and live nomadic life. Tuva people can speak five or six languages, including Mongolian, Chinese, English, Kazakh and Russian. In short, Tuva people are very smart. We went to Tuva's house to visit them. They were good at singing and dancing. They danced and welcomed the guests from afar and brought out their delicacies for us to enjoy.

    Tuva people belong to a branch of the Mongolian nationality. There are only more than 2,000 Tuwa people left in China, so the welfare allowances given by the state are quite good. At present, the Tuva people in China are only distributed in Kanas, Hemu and Baihaba. There are only two wooden houses in Kanas scenic area that can provide accommodation, namely the old village and the new village. If you want to try to live in seclusion, you can come here for a period of time to see the days and nights of Kanas, listen to a "Dongbra" song next to Kazakhs, attend the Mongolian wedding, take pictures of the sunset at 10:30 in Xinjiang, and learn to ride horses with children in Tuwaxin Village to experience the joys of childhood of Shanliwa. Here, as long as it rains, the chances of seeing rainbows and clouds are different. Chang Da

    Tuva Village is very close to the scenic spot transfer station. It passes to Kanas Villa and the lake. There are two parking spots in the village. It is convenient to go to other places. The village provides accommodation. It is good in summer, but it is cold in winter without heating. The village was built along the road, simple and beautiful.

    If it is convenient to live in the old village by boat, take a bus to the tourist center the next morning to see the morning fog in Shenxian Bay, swim across Sanwan and then take a bus to Guanyutai or Baihaba in the tourist center. If you go to Guanyutai on foot and live near the new village, but I heard that it is not convenient to come out in the morning, so we should arrange it properly. If you watch the sunset at Guanyutai, walking down the mountain to live in a new village is also an option. The traffic in Kanas Scenic Spot is limited. Whatever arrangement you choose, you must make a clear inquiry.

    The morning fog and smoke of Hemu are very famous. This is the largest of the three Tuva villages. The most common place in the villages is accommodation. Hotels are scattered all over the country. Buildings are interesting. Handmade yogurt tastes good and is worth trying.

    Tuva Village is on the way from the scenic spot to the lake. Each family has its own characteristics. It is built of primitive wood and enclosed by railings. Tuva people are good at singing and dancing. In the evening, they can see it in Tuva's house.

    In Kanas, we live in Tuva Village. There are new villages and old villages. We live in the new village. We can talk with the owner about the price of the house. Then we can choose to take the bus if we climb the top. But we went on horseback. The impression is that there are 1201 people. The owner will take you on the path. The journey is about 1 hour. It's really interesting to ride horses. You can enjoy it. Try out

    It is the only village in Hemu Scenic Area. Tuva people belong to a branch of Mongolian, but they can not see yurts in their villages. They are all wooden houses. It is said that they are descendants of Genghis Khan Guard. They have lived here for more than 700 years to protect the legendary Mausoleum of Dahan.
