Everyone knows that I want to go to Xinjiang, not for others. It is only in China’s great mountains and waters. Xinjiang is absolutely like Tibet. It is one of the best places in the minds of photographers. This long-distance trip, which lasted for one month in September, will definitely be very exhausting, so I only want to fly to a certain island holiday in August, when I suddenly received a call from my sister to call me to go to Xinjiang, I have A few minutes of embarrassment, but soon made up my mind. Although I am also very aware that August is not the best time in Xinjiang’s traditional sense, but I have not been tempted, and I have embarked on the journey.
During this trip, I always heard someone sigh and didn’t catch up with the good season, but I stubbornly thought that the scenery that was not 365 days a year was repeated. The weather was different and the mood was different. Different.
Don’t worry about the so-called good season. In the land that the creator loves in Xinjiang, there are flowers in the spring, green grass and cattle in the summer, red leaves in the autumn, snow covered in the winter, and each season has its own. Beauty, every day is radiant.
What you need to do is just to set aside your holiday, and in different seasons, pack up different moods to welcome the feast of the eyes.

I don’t remember when I saw the Galaxy last time. It seems to be the Maldives a few years ago. But what is certain is that I have not seen it in China yet! (There are too few places I went to)
This time in Xinjiang, I spent a lot of nights sleeping in the Milky Way, and it was really a happy life. On the second night of Kanas, the first time in my life I saw the Perseid meteor shower. Although it was with three big men, although it was shivering in the cold, although I only forgot to make a wish with screaming, this kind of memory must last a lifetime. memorable.
Xinjiang, the more beautiful the night!
The summer sunset time in Xinjiang is about 9:15. Generally, the Galaxy can be seen around 11:00, but depending on the degree of the moon, the moon will usually fall at 1 am, which is the best time to shoot the Galaxy. I can shoot early, choose a hill, quietly shoot in places where there is no light pollution, and watch the meteors quietly. This feels really good.
In addition to those famous scenic spots, the scenery along the way is also indispensable in Xinjiang. Unfortunately, most of the beautiful scenery is fleeting and can only be remembered in the mind, but fortunately also recorded some, and enjoy with the king!

This time we have a total of 15 small partners to travel together, dragging the family to take the mouth, so lively. So let’s take a photo of everyone to commemorate.
First of all, my own photos, thanks to the thousands of thousands of people in the same industry, a middle-aged male photography enthusiast, I took such a zheng (NG) vulgar (ning), almost no face, a variety of distorted posture … can see the depth of photography, really. Capture! Look at everyone, just entertain, entertain! (I miss my brother and fox…)
It’s rare to have two photos that I took for me…..Grateful! !
There are actually two self-portraits, to see where I am forced to go, there is no bottom line and principle! !
Behind me is a gold hoop thermometer that shows our temperature in the Flame Mountain, 40 degrees! Despite this, the sense of body is much better than that of Chongqing at 40 degrees!
Another photographer, Song Ge
My line of my model – my brother-in-law! ! ! (In the first few days, I sent a photo of my brother-in-law every day. Everyone asked me why I didn’t follow his sister and niece. I dare say that my sister walked away every time I took a photo and said, “I don’t take it!” He ran and shouted: “You have to follow me again!!” Only the brother-in-law… Every time I stood up and said, “Let me!” Jump and jump, very incomparable……. is a good model!! Of course, I miss my two wives…)
My little niece! ! From the beginning of holding the camera to her, she would scream and shouted: “You have to take care of me again” and then ran away, and took the initiative to ask for photos, and I have established a profound “revolutionary friendship”! !
April sister, everyone’s pistachio, she has laughter all the way. Of course, crying is not small….

Compared with Tibet, the whole environment of eating and drinking in Xinjiang is so much better, and the accommodation is not expensive. The most expensive Linhai Villa in the Kanas scenic area is just over 400, and the rest is two or three hundred. This time we almost lived in the standard of three or four stars, except that the cabins of Hemu were relatively simple but clean and tidy, and others were well equipped. It is recommended that friends who travel to Xinjiang should make a reservation in advance during peak seasons such as summer vacations or holidays or at the end of September. Other times, they can go to find a room. If you don’t want to live in the scenic spot, you can live in a nearby county town.
Recommend to everyone a few special accommodations I like:
Cabins in the Cocoto Sea: The scenery is particularly beautiful. Compared to the cabins of Hemu, this facility is relatively complete, and the yurts in the distance are not bad.
The Linhai Villa in the Kanas Scenic Area is the most expensive hotel we have stayed in. We have complete facilities and a good location. On a hill, walking to the top of the mountain is the perfect location for shooting stars!
Tianzhu Hotel at the foot of Karawang Mountain: Five Stars Recommended! The price is more than 200 hotels, definitely a five-star standard! Dry and wet partitions, all facilities have everything, except that there is no hot water at the beginning, and later repaired, the rest is impeccable! Go to Kala Jun and recommend staying here! ! In addition, the restaurant downstairs is the Sichuan Restaurant, even if it is absolutely good business in Chongqing! !
at lastWrite this painful part!
Eating should be happy, why would it be painful?
As a person who usually does not eat sheep, when he entered Xinjiang, it was a thief boat that fell into the abyss!
Every meal has mutton, glutinous rice, pilaf, yellow noodles, noodles, large-sized chicken…. Well, actually eat it once in a while, these are quite delicious, so much so that On the first day, I am happy to eat kebabs, and the photos are also working hard…
The next day I also had a delicious sesame meal. I was naive at the time: I wanted to stay in Xinjiang for this sake! ! Looking back now, it’s just a ruin! !
Mash soup and squid!
The yurt for the Cocoto Sea, after the table meal like this, no matter how much the standard configuration is a person, or a la carte, the food is always eaten: large-plate chicken, hand-caught lamb, tomato scrambled eggs, tomatoes, green peppers, onions The mixture is topped with mutton. The yellow noodles are cold noodles…. Like people who like to eat big chickens, I started to say that as long as there is a large plate of chicken every day, I will not say this after eating. …
Finally, in the last few days, I started to find the Sichuan restaurant in a crazy way. I ate a total of three Sichuan dishes twice. I once had a hot pot of Sichuan snacks…. As long as I saw the “Chinese food” on the way, the whole person would burn! Look at the smashing of everyone……………
This is the second month in a row to go to a Muslim place. I will go there next month and stay for a full month. You know that I think the chrysanthemum will be tight! I want to raise a pig…. Pigs are so cute, why, why don’t they eat pigs! ! ! ! ! woo woo woo woo! !

From this itinerary, we can see that we have spent a lot of days on the wheels, and we are distressed by our ass… In general, the road conditions in northern Xinjiang are very good, and ordinary cars can be driven!
In addition to self-driving, Xinjiang can also play like this:
1, chartered car Do not want to drive their own friends can give priority to chartered cars, high degree of freedom, if people have more fees can also be accepted! And there are all kinds of models, five-seat car, seven-seat business car and even twenty-seat Cost! The route is optional, you can also listen to the driver’s advice! Friends who have needs can add my friend WeChat, is a professional chartered driver in Xinjiang, driving is Coster, and can introduce various reliable models and drivers: w45324709
2, public transportation If the time on the wheel is too long, in fact, you can also consider using the aircraft to increase the bar! Xinjiang Urumqi, Kanas, Kashgar, Yining, Altay, Hetian, Korla, Karamay, Tacheng, Kuqa, Qiemo, Aksu, Nalati, Turpan, Hami, Bole and other places have airports, is China The province with the most airports, you can use these airports as a base to fly, then use the bus to play around the perimeter of each place, or take a day trip or two-day tour of the travel agency, so you don’t have to take a car every day, it is also a good way.
3. In recent years, hiking is very popular, and many people are hiking in the Kanas Scenic Area. One of the hiking routes starts from Jaden and one from Kanas. There are a lot of people on the road, just follow the team and don’t need to ask for a guide. However, these two routes have certain strength, and have physical strength requirements. They are suitable for backpackers, outdoor enthusiasts and young people. If you have insufficient physical strength, you can rent a horse. Each horse is about 250-300 yuan per day, equipped with a groom. The hiking route can be used from May to October every year, and there may be more snow in other seasons, which is not suitable for coming.
Jia Dengyu is about 30 kilometers away from Hemu hiking route. It takes about 10 hours on foot and usually arrives in one day. All the way along the Hemu River, the grasslands, forests, hills and other places appear alternately, the scenery is very beautiful. There are also several inn-stays in the middle of the road. If the one-day can’t be completed, the tourists can stay overnight in the middle of the road. The multi-person bed is usually about 50 yuan, and may rise to nearly 100 yuan during the eleventh period.
About 40 kilometers from the Kanas Lake to the Hemu hiking route, you need to take a two-day hike and stay overnight at Xiaohei Lake. There are meadows, swamps, lakes, forests and mountains on the road. The scenery is diverse and beautiful. Especially the small black lake, surrounded by the valley, the scenery is fantastic. The accommodation at Xiaohei Lake is a yurt for herders. The conditions are very simple. Each yurt can accommodate about 10 people, about 50 yuan per person.
In addition, we will focus on public transportation in the Kanas Grand Scenic Area because there are a lot of people asking:
As of 2016, Xinjiang Kanas Tourism Development Co., Ltd. has opened a scenic car to and from Kanas, Baihaba Village and Hemu Village. Private cars are not allowed. The following transportation vehicles and prices are as follows:
Kanas Airport to Kanas Jiadeng Airport Bus Line Price: 130 yuan / round trip / person

Hemu Ticket Station to Hemu Village Transfer Center Price: 100 yuan / person
Because Xinjiang is too big, and the altitudes of different places are different, it is different in summer, different places, and the temperature difference is especially big!
Urumqi, Turpan is very hot, 35-40 degrees during the day, more than 20 degrees at night!
The Kanas area is relatively cool, about 25 degrees during the day, and can drop below 10 degrees at night!
The coldest Bayinbulak, we just caught up with the rain, I am short sleeves, long sleeves, long sleeves, fleece, a raincoat on the outside, and a thick sock jacket jeans! In this way, it was still cold and shivering in the rain! I feel that the temperature is one or two degrees. Everyone is joking that it may be snowing…
So I decided to go to the basin friends in Xinjiang. I spit blood to remind everyone to bring enough clothes. When I met my friend and went behind me, I brought short-sleeved shorts. I told her that I must buy two extra thick wools in Urumqi. Shawl, or buy a down jacket…
I am so eager to say such a heavy topic? Yes, I must say it! The thing I think most on this road is this!
do you know? As a photographer, every time I want to do my best to present the most beautiful side of a place to everyone, but this does not mean that I can’t see these bad things! It takes many years to shape a beautiful place, but it takes only one second to destroy it!
In the fourteen days of traveling in Xinjiang, you can see the rubbish everywhere on the road every day, and you know very well that there is no one to clean up here! In addition to the rubbish everywhere, there are a lot of disgusting toilets, or that can’t be called a toilet! Maybe you think this is Chinese characteristics, but can we change it slowly? I want to appeal to everyone to start from the self! Maybe there is no toilet or the toilet is too dirty and too smelly, you have to solve it in the wild, but can you take away the used paper? Maybe there is no garbage bin here. You have garbage in your hand. Can you bring the garbage to the car and take it to the place where there is a trash can? Feces can be dissolved in the soil. Can other garbage be used as well? ? Is it difficult to take the garbage away? Don’t feel that others are throwing rubbish here, so I have to throw it here, protect the environment and all the right things should start from the self!
Otherwise, I am worried that the bigger Xinjiang, the bigger China, will have a full day of garbage!
Is Xinjiang suitable for bringing children? the answer should be confirmed! There are countless natural resources, beautiful landscapes and harmonious animals everywhere in Xinjiang. These flowers, flowers and grasses and all kinds of living creatures will be loved by children, and the accommodation conditions in Xinjiang are not bad, the road conditions are good, the altitude is not high, there is no high anti-reverse, very Suitable for tourists.
What do you need to pay attention to with your child:
First, warn them to respect nature, don’t pick grass and flowers, try not to get too close to wild animals, because children’s behavior is uncontrollable and avoid unnecessary harm.
Second, the trip should be a little easier, giving the child plenty of time to sleep. Try to choose the way of the aircraft to reduce the time of self-driving or chartered. If you must drive by car or chartered, and there will be many days of car rides, then prepare enough playthings for them, or wait for them to keep asking: “How long will we have to arrive? I am so bored! Can I play? Ipad?” (Don’t ask me why I know, we can bring two children this time…)
Third, bring a variety of drugs, try to give children mineral water to avoid soil and water, if the child has any discomfort, go to the hospital in the nearby county as soon as possible to seek medical treatment. This time my little niece was allergic to the whole body and finally the whole person was swollen. I went to the hospital twice, but once in Chongqing, it would be fine! !
Fourth, look at your child tightly, because there are really many people in the scenic spot, especially when they enter the queue to change buses in various scenic spots….
Before going to Xinjiang, the most worrying question should be whether it is safe. Most people will think that Northern Xinjiang has safely passed through southern Xinjiang. In fact, if you actually go, you will find that whether it is northern or southern, it is safe. The factors of instability are only a few cases, and it is difficult to think that it is not safe to do such a governance method in Xinjiang:
Urumqi Airport is the airport with the highest security checkpoints I have been to. I checked my tripod for the first time, and I took out my outboard lights for the staff to check. After the security check, everyone must be barefoot. Check the soles of the feet. All the cameras in the camera bag have to be taken out. Everything must be taken out separately. I feel like I’m shouting out of the clothes.
Into the city of Urumqi, it is a few steps to stand guard booths, or open tanks…. The entire Xinjiang area, all hotel stores have to go through security checks, enter the county, the whole car people get off to check ID card Only children do not need to. Are you still afraid of such security checks? So don’t ask again: Is Xinjiang safe? You can go boldly and boldly!
This one is dedicated to photography enthusiasts, just write about the practical information I have encountered.
Xinjiang is very suitable for telephoto, because it is big! The sun is very good, remember to bring a polarizer, the flowing lake is veryRemember to bring a dimming mirror. Remember to remove the UV mirror when taking the Silver River Star.
The sunrise of Hemu Village will have many people going to the opposite side of the hill in the early morning. Personally, it is not necessary to be so early. There are more people, and you will certainly be able to take up the land, and they are all telephoto, and certainly can’t shoot people. In addition, in August, the sunrise time is 7:30. It is cold, no light, and it doesn’t look good. Unless you plan to delay, go ahead.
In addition, the light pollution in Hemu Village is quite large. Although I also took the Galaxy in the yard where I live, if I want to go to the best shooting point, it must be the opposite mountain. Remember to bring a good flashlight with the app: Star Walk, tell you accurately. The location of the Milky Way and the various constellations.
Kanas should go to those bays in the morning, and there is morning fog in the sun! In the afternoon, watch the fish station to take Kanas Lake, and go straight! The best place to take the Galaxy at night is that the Linhai Villa where I live will go to the door of the waterworks on the mountain. It is almost the highest point, with less light pollution and wide open.
The sunset position of the Karachi grassland is just the snowy mountain side. If the weather is good and you have enough clothes, you may wish to wait a bit. Although the sunset is 9 o’clock, it should be able to produce a film.
The humanities in Xinjiang are indeed very rich. If you can, please try to ask if the parties accept it before shooting to avoid unnecessary trouble!
I think of this at present, please indicate if there is any error!
Because not going abroad, needless to say wifi, but this mobile phone signal is also a problem in Xinjiang!
Moved to Xinjiang, and can no longer be tough, obviously not as good as China Unicom and telecommunications.
Telecom, the millennial third child, has risen in Xinjiang, and when Mobile Unicom is not working, it is still okay!
Unicom continues to be moderate, 4G is not the whole of Xinjiang, do not think about it, most urban counties have 3G, sometimes GPRS on the road, most of the time there is no signal.
mobile? Hehehehe! In addition to several cities, I feel that there has been no signal, and I heard everyone’s lament along the way!
Therefore, if you want to spend time on the road, and you are a mobile network friend, don’t think about surfing the Internet. Look at the next few movies! !
Three consecutive travel notes have been written into religion, and it is also because these months have been mixed in religious countries or religious areas, and the feelings must be deep!
Before, I was naive to think that only the Hui people are Muslims and believe in Islam, so it is strange because Xinjiang is a Muslim region, but there are not many Uighurs in the Hui people in Xinjiang, and there are many other ethnic groups. I have been thinking about these peoples. Why don’t you eat pork? Later, when you talked with local people, you know that all these people believe in Islam…
Since it is in a religious place, no matter whether this religion is good or not, everyone likes it or not, and reality is not something we can change, so we still have to respect the culture of others. After all, most people are very kind! In addition, I have to say that the sister papers of Xinjiang ethnic minorities are really beautiful! Although the headscarf binds women, it is a symbol of inequality, but if you only regard it as a jewelry, it is pretty good!
Despite this, I hope that all religions will gradually change with the development of society, with less restrictions on rules and regulations, less illusory worship of the gods, more understanding of human nature, and affirmation of self!
Come to Xinjiang to buy and buy!
Because Xinjiang is very large, it is mostly ethnic minorities. There are many handicrafts of various ethnic groups. It looks very beautiful and has the urge to move home! Although these goods are sold in various places, it is recommended to buy in the Grand Bazaar in Urumqi (it is a giant small commodity market). When you are finished, you can go to the plane and it is convenient!
Raisins are definitely cheaper in Turpan! Grand Bazaar also sells dried fruit, the price is not as good as Turpan!
Buy goods in the Grand Bazaar, please shop around, the same things are available in many homes, the price is not the same! Also remember, don’t bargain, unless you really want it, if you pay someone else to agree and you don’t buy it, you may have trouble! ! In addition, some Uighurs outside the mall will hold things to ask you if you want to, don’t take care of them, don’t touch the things in their hands, or lose money! The police can’t manage it! Ok, don’t be afraid, these are just a small probability event!
The silk scarf in Xinjiang is very beautiful. I bought six in one breath and took out the concave shape next month! In addition, I bought this drum for the fat sheep! ! 50 RMB! Then turn around and find anotherShops sell 30…
Although I have been in Xinjiang for 14 days this time, I feel that the place I have played is also a slap in the face! There are too many fun places in Xinjiang, and this time we are mainly in Northern Xinjiang. Southern Xinjiang only went to Bayinbulak. Most of our friends told me that South Xinjiang is more fun! So I made up my mind that the next trip to Xinjiang must go to southern Xinjiang! Of course, next time, I will go for another season and see the different scenery! Bayinbulak is a place that must be gone. This time, because of the weather, I really regretted it. I hope to see the most beautiful side next time!
In the end, Xinjiang is really beautiful and beautiful. You can’t imagine it when you are not there! My lens can only show very local things, too much feeling can not be conveyed to everyone! Please include Xinjiang in your travel plan and feel the gift of nature in person!
