I highly recommend Imam Hussein’s services. He and local guides provided a customized tour of extraordinary diversity, and current– as well as historical–highlights. I began in Lanzhou (since I’d already been to Xian) and did roughly the 13-day itinerary with an extra day in Kashgar. Went from overnight trains (an experience in themselves); to camping on the roof of a Uyghur family home in Tuyuk village near Turpan to escape the heat; to cozy stone house with stove at Karakul Lake on the KKH highway (instead of the scheduled yurt) because the Kyrgiz family knew it was going to snow and insisted on keeping us toasty warm. Woke to fried eggs and yak butter tea, and got back to Kasher in time for the Sunday livestock market (minus the morning tour buses and crowds of tourists). Highly recommend getting to Urumqi in time for the Loulan mummies and various ethic displays in the new regional museum. Camping experience recommended for the overnight trains and home stays. Imam was extremely gracious, patiently responding to my dozens of emailed questions promptly. Imam and local guides were very accommodating to my own particular interests. I had a solo tour with my own guide and driver. Price was extremely competitive with other Kashgar-based companies listed in Lonely Planet. Imam was clearly the most professional from start to finish. I’d do it again in a minute.

Many thanks to Imam, Abdul and our super guide Tudajim for arranging such a wonderful trip! After living in China for 3 years Xinjiang was definitely one of the highlights! Fantastic nature, exciting culture, good food and friendly people! The Pamir plateau, and staying in the yurts was just fantastic. Tashkurgan with the old fort and the live stock market in Kashgar was also very interesting and good fun! Kashgar with the basar and nice old buildings was also something we enjoyed! For our 6 year old son Pelle the camel riding in the Takla makan desert was the definite highlight of the trip! We will be back soon!
