Thank you for organizing our trip in Xinjiang and Gansu. We really enjoyed it! Of course it was cold (as we expected), but we think it was a good idea to visit during winter, we were almost the only tourists and this was very enjoyable (just the both of us with a guide in Mogao caves!).
We especially liked Kashgar and Karakul. The livestock market was one of the highlight and Tudajim was an excellent guide.
The tour in Turpan area was not our favorite, but Jioahe ruins were worth seeing.
Mogao caves and the cresent moon lake were also highlights of the trip. We struggled little bit for communicating with the driver who could not speak a word of English but everything went smoothly.
It was also good to see the Heavenly lake, but the shuttle bus system is troublesome.
Thanks again for this nice holiday.
