I only know that Xiahe has been open for tourists, but not know whether a special permit is required or not.

It depends on the air companies. Which air you will take? As I know, the China Eastern airline free luggage limit is 40kg for first class passangers, 30 kg for business class and 20 kg for economy class.

Hi everyone,

I am considering to visit the Gansu region - esp. Xifeng city - in spring next year. How about the weather during this time of the year- lets say March, April - is it mainly a dry period...? Thank you in advance!

Generally, it is the early spring-dry season in Gansu. But, Xifeng has a little milder weather than other region.
