You may fly to Xiahe from Xi'an Airport (about 75 minutes). Upon arrival, take a taxi to the grassland for about CNY 100. It will be cloudy, and rain or snow sometimes. The temperature may range from 20F to 60F. It is cold. To be honest, it is not an ideal time to pay a visit. The best time is in July and August. If possible, you may postpone your trip a little bit. ;)

What is the temperature now, or for the weekend of April 23-24? How Cold? At 10,000 ft, it must be relatively cold, as compared to the desert of the Gansu corridor ! Please advise, as I am going from the desert to the a short period.

No direct flights are available from Lanzhou to kashgar. So, you need to take flight to Urumqi first and then take flight to Kashgar from Urumqi.
