Day 2 Urumqi
Today you will have a private full day tour to the Heavenly Lake. Although it will take about 4 hours' drive to the lake, when you arrive there, you will find the long journey is quite worthwhile. The Heavenly Lake, Tianchi in Chinese, is one of the most famous alpine lakes in the world. Located in the middle of the Bogda Peak, the crescent-shaped lake is about 2,000 meters (6562 feet) above the sea level. You will see the enthralling scenery of the crystal lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains and lush pine forests, reflecting the shadows of the blue sky and the white clouds. Besides the marvelous scenery, the Heavenly Lake is also an ideal summer resort and alpine ski resort.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Day 3 Urumqi - Kashgar
Kashgar Sunday Market
After a rich breakfast at the hotel, we will drive you to visit the Southern Pasture which is some 70 kilometers (43 miles) from the city center of Urumqi. It is said that early in the Tang Dynasty (over 1,300 years ago) the pasture was a famous gameland and summer resort. Now it covers an area of 119 square kilometers (about 45 square miles), and is a well-known alpine pasture boasting lush grass, dense forests, snow-caped mountains, deep valleys and zigzag streams. Then proceed to Xinjiang Museum. As the only provincial comprehensive museum of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the museum houses over 32,000 pieces of historical items, exhibiting the unique folk custom of twenty ethnic minorities, the ancient Silk Road and ancient corpses. Meanwhile, the museum is also the largest research center of cultural relics in the autonomous region. Afterwards, take a flight to Kashgar where the local guide will meet you outside the baggage claim area of the airport and transfer you to the hotel.

Day 4 Kashgar
A local family visit
Today's private itinerary includes the Id Kah Mosque, the Old Street and the Abakh Khoja Tomb. The Id Kah Mosque, initially built in 1442 during the Ming Dynasty, is a group of ancient Islamic buildings of strong ethnic folklore and Islamic flavor. As the largest mosque in Xinjiang and China, it is not only a holy land for the Muslims but also an important venue for all kinds of celebrations. The Old Street is the old town of Kashgar City, consisting of hundreds of streets and lanes as well as thousands of old houses. Wandering in the maze of lanes, you will totally be absorbed by the serene lifestyle and strong Uygur flavor. The Abakh Khoja Tomb is a masterpiece of the old Uygur architecture. Nestled some five kilometers (about 3 miles) northeast to the city center, it is the family graveyard of the powerful ruler, Abakh Khoja, in 17th century. The most splendid building is the major tomb, which was constructed in the typical Islamic style with dome and minarets; it is also the largest mausoleum in Xinjiang.
