You can go to Urumqi and Ili in Xinjiang. At the end of November, most of the places there have entered the season of winter. It's very cold with snow. You should wear warm clothes. But 4 to 5 days may not be very enough, if you want to visit there, because that place is so large.
Beijing is not so cold and have less muslims comparing to Xinjiang. So, time is very pressing if you want to visit Beijing at the same time.
