Sky mirrored in the lake, the whole world becomes blue and it beautifies and purifies your heart.

Located at an elevation of 2,080 meters (6,800 feet), Sayram Lake covers an area of about 350 square kilometers (175 square miles). Lying in a basin surrounded by Tianshan Mountain, it is the largest alpine lake in Xinjiang. The water of the lake is very pure and clear. You can see flocks of ducks and swans frolicing on the water surface. Thus Sayram Lake is considered as a pearl of the Silk Road. Attraction Intro: Sayram Lake
