"Day 4 - Swan lake" Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Province Things to Do Tip by yirutang

  swan lake with horse
by yirutang

The very next morning, we rent a jeep driving into the pararie because normal car won't work there. The drive inside is very beatutiful, just as the picture shown in the last last post. But it is very windy and I couldn't open the window. So no picture was taken. The grassland is so calm under the hug of the great tian shan glacier moutains. The mountain looks just like godess to me. Everything is so grand that I can hardly speak.

Swan lake is known to be the residence of the "Big Swan". But unfortunately I only saw one swan just when I step off the car. No more swans was seen. I was told that in Sepetember there will be more swans flying from india. Although the lake itself is somewhat dissappointing, being in the great grass land makes everything still wonderful.

I went for a horse back riding and took some pictures.
