For me this was the second time to travel to Xinjiang with Xinjiangtravel.com. While travelling for 20 days in 2015, we decided to spend 7 days in and around Kasghar during this year’s October national holiday. Xinjiangtravel helped us to put the program together and arranged car, driver (Arkin), and did the hotel bookings. The weather was fantastic throughout the whole trip, October is definitely one of the best time to travel to this region. After spending one night in Kasghar, Arkin drove us safely and comfortably up the Karakorum highway to Tashkurgan where we stayed two nights. We spent the remaining days of our trip in and around Kasghar, including a short trip to the Taklamakan desert, and visiting the Shipton’s Arch on the last day before flying back to Beijing. Abdul, Imam and Tudajim did a great job by recommending a program that included all aspects of the memorable trip with breathtaking sceneries of the Pamir mountains, insights into Xinjiang culture, a fun trip to the outskirts of the Taklamakan desert, and comfortable hotels that allowed us to relax. We will definitely use Xinjiangtravel again once we are planning our next trip to Xinjiang.

Hi Abdul. My pleasure. The trip to Karakul was amazing. The beauty at every turn on the Karakorum Highway was simply breathtaking and unique. I am so glad you recommended it. Thank you for pre-empting me about the condition of the road as most of it was still under construction but it was worth the discomfort. It certainly helped prepare our team members mentally for it. Your guide Tudajim was fantastic. Very accommodating and stopped the van for us to take photos, use washroom and breaks readily. He gave a very good commentary and his beautiful smile and gentel attitude made the trip very delightful for us. The driver was a bit more grumpy but I do understand as it is not easy to drive for so many hours in that condition and with his age. Safety is still the most important for a driver and he has very good driving skills.

We had other travel companies who responded to our inquiry but I found yours to be very responsive with a can do but honest attitude. I certainly would recommend you to anyone who plans to go to Kashgar.
God bless you. Please send my kind regards to Tudajim. He has gave us a good impression of your beautiful country and people.
