Winter is approaching – meet the long winter of Altay

Spread the love

Written at the beginning
    Children in the north probably never understand the curiosity and obsession of southerners in the snow. I have traveled to so many countries with Mr. Huang, but I have always passed the snow, but the cold of the snow is still fresh. It is said that the northern part of the autumn is a paradise for photographers. However, the vastness and the snow and ice of Altay in winter make us feel at ease. I remember the first night of my arrival in Xinjiang. During the long journey to Burqin, I saw some faint things under the dark streetlights during the parking break. I caught them with my sleeves, six petals of snowflakes. So I carefully put them on my sleeves and wanted to bring the car to Mr. Huang. Yes. This is a journey that begins with snow. However, this is only the beginning. Later we met a herd of neatly arranged teams. I met a camel that would eat at the mouth. The boy who met the Kazakh family always likes to laugh at you while waiting for you at the door. I met the snow in the mountains and the smog of a whole gallery. I met Altay’s long winter.
    Character introduction
    Mr. Li Beibei and Mr. Huang (commonly known as Nicholas). Look at the eighth year of the world hand in hand. Arguing in more than ten countries. But always good in the next country. One of the great pleasures of the trip is that the photos taken on the day of the night are better. It’s almost impossible to talk to each other. But when you play table tennis, you will still fight for you.

    Traffic articles
    Xiamen to and from Urumqi: the low season in winter, the lowest promotional price in the round-trip tax-included 2000. Summer and autumn prices are often more than twice. Urumqi-Burqin: overnight bus. Bottom price + insurance for two people a total of 360 + Burqin – Urumqi: overnight bus. The upper shop price + insurance two people a total of 340 + from Burqin – Hemu – Kanas – White Haba – Burqin: full chartered, because winter snow in northern Xinjiang, thick snow, complicated road conditions, not recommended to drive. Hemu Village – Beautiful Peak: Horse-drawn sleigh, 100 yuan per capita.
    Accommodation articles
    Hemu/White Haba: B&B, the basic price we live in is about 200 per night.
    Kanas: Because I really want to take a shower, I booked Kanas Mountain Villa. The only thing to note is that when paying for the room, you need to ask if the front desk contains breakfast. We were therefore taken a small stroke, although the money is not much, but it still affects the mood. Urumqi: 7 days hotel Grand Bazaar branch. The new store, the equipment is very new, mainly because the price is basically the same as that of the two people living in the Youth Hostel. Before seeing many of the youth travel evaluations, the hot water in winter is insufficient. The public bathroom usually has no hot water after washing one person, so if it is two people The 7-day price/performance ratio is quite high.
    Diet
    Many shops are closed in winter, and we basically settled on the bed and breakfast. Probably the price is as follows: hand-picked rice: per capita about 40 yuan to pull the bar: per capita about 35 yuan of green vegetables: a plate about 25 yuan 揪 film: per capita about 20 yuan breakfast: per capita about 15 yuan
    Ticket articles
    In the winter, the entire Kanas scenic spot is 110 per person. In fact, in terms of single tickets, winter is much more favorable than summer and autumn. The most we saw along the way was the toll booth. There are several pieces in the entire Kanas scenic spot. In addition to the ticket fees and various shuttle bus fares, the price is still very high in winter.
    Photographic equipment (from guest guest Nicholas)

    Battery: 2 original batteries + 1 domestic battery. At the end of November, the temperature in the northern Xinjiang was between minus 10 and 20 degrees. The three batteries performed better than expected, and there was no need to keep the unused batteries attached to the body for heating. The mobile phone will be relatively fragile. When you see the first sight of Hemu morning fog, it will be shut down gloriously.

    Tripod: A borrowed WF tripod.
    Camera cleaning tools: including lens pen, lens paper and air blowing.
    Macbook Air and its charger: backup photos and chase homeland or something.啰嗦Two sentences about the protection of the camera in a cold environment. For an environment with a minus 10+ degree, a normal SLR camera can handle it. The camera’s warm cover or warm baby’s exaggerated equipment is not needed yet. The most important thing to note is the protection of the camera when it enters and exits in hot and cold environments. Before entering the room, you should put the camera into a backpack or a sealed bag, so that it can adapt slowly to the temperature change, and then take it out after a while, otherwise the lens will fog, and the same is true for getting on the toilet.
    Clothing article (again from guest guest Nicholas)
    After talking about the warmth of the camera, let’s talk about people’s warmth. To deal with the lower 10+ degrees of northern Xinjiang, a place where your eyelashes can freeze, you should protect in the following aspects. The following follows the order of dressing. 1, put on thermal underwear + warm pants. Also known as the Qiuyi Qiuku. 2, catch a fleece or a thick sweater. 3, a fleece pants. 4, down jacket / ski jacket / thick jacket. Windproof and waterproof function is necessary. 5, ski pants, if you are too ugly (which is true), you can use ordinary pants, such as thicker sweat pants / outdoor pants. However, if your pants are not waterproof, please bring snow! set! Because the 1 meter thick snow is trekking in northern Xinjiang. 6, a substitute for snow sets: stockings. There is nothing wrong with the fact that the girl is on the lap and the robber is on the head. From your shoes all the way to the knees, my practical experience is snow-free and stress-free. However, the life of a pair of stockings is around a natural day. So you can prepare a few more pairs. 7, socks: thick cotton socks / wool socks, shoes are big enough to set two pairs. Practice has proved that the most easily frozen parts are the hands and feet. 8, hiking boots: in the middle or above. I am wearing Timberland with Beibei. But Babe thinks snow boots will be better. 9, hat: It is highly recommended to cover the ears of the Lei Feng hat. 10, mask: In such an environment, the protection of the exposed parts is the most critical. 11, scarf / collar: the same reason, please protect your neck. 12, Gloves: Practice has proved that a pair of fleece gloves is not enough, it is recommended to thicken the warm gloves. But don’t be too thick to affect finger movements and camera operations. Then you can open the door and embrace the snow in Kanas. on. Remember not to pick up all your luggage before we leave, just like us. Wearing a short-sleeved shuttle in the Urumqi airport, which is not so good for heating, is not a very pleasant experience.

    Day 1 Urumqi – white snow like cherry blossoms covered with branches
    The night before, I talked about life and rummaging through the cabinets to find all kinds of cotton clothes to catch cashmere until three in the morning. Just sleeping for more than four hours is getting too sour for our older girls and quirks. Despite this, we rushed to the airport with excitement. We were excited to put all the luggage directly, and we were happily on the plane wearing small short sleeves and stepping on the kick. Although it is almost December, this warm and proud southern town has once again failed in winter. Short sleeves are still very suitable and healthy equipment. Until the 8th Jinan Yaoqiang Airport stopped, looking at the various military coats and down jackets around us, we couldn’t help but silently pray for the unfamiliar place in the airport. Don’t give us a far-off position as a meeting. .
    
    <Nicholas in short sleeves stopped at Jinan Yaoqiang Airport>
    
    <At the airport, see the super cute little bear music box>
    The flight was not only unexpectedly on time, but even landed ten minutes earlier. As a senior victim of flight delays, I was very touched. The first priority of getting off the plane must be to take the baggage and change it. Otherwise, people all over the airport will look straight at us wearing short sleeves><. At the end of the transvestment, the driver found that the driver’s eldest brother was already waiting, so he went straight to the Nianzigou passenger station. The driver’s big brother said that he is a Shandong native, his mother is a Northeaster, but he grew up in Urumqi. Despite this, I still feel that he has a strong Shandong and Northeastern atmosphere. It’s cool and crisp. It is also a life-saving serial call. Urumqi Airport is very close to the city. About half an hour later we arrived at the Nianzigou Bus Terminal. Maybe I saw a lot of comments before I came here and said that it was dirty and messy. I actually felt that it was quite orderly. The pit stop requires security. Before entering the station, there will be a lot of black cars coming to pull the business and ignore it. After the security check, the right hand side is the ticket hall. The night bus from Urumqi to Burqin was only 8:10, and we bought two right bottom bunks. The passenger station also has a micro-signal, and it can be found by directly searching for the “Nianzigou Passenger Transport Station”. It seems that you can buy tickets directly on WeChat. If you don’t have a shop, you can try it in advance. After we bought the ticket, we went out to eat. The temperature in Urumqi is about minus two degrees, because the trees on both sides of the road are covered with snow when it has just snowed in the morning. It looks like Japan with a cherry blossom in April.
    
    
    <Suck a sip of Urumqi cold air>
    Because of the limited time, we decided to settle the dinner at Ma Sanyuan Beef Noodle opposite the station. On such a cold day, a hot mouth of beef soup is full of refreshment. Mr. Huang also intimately went to the door and ordered a kebab to give me a meeting in Xinjiang. In the age when the price was still a string of mutton skewers, I once thought about a hundred skewers of mutton on my hands. But it has never been put into practice. And when the price went to a string of five lambs, I probably didn’t have enough impulse and imagination to enjoy the hundred skewers.
    The last time I stayed in the bus was in Thailand, sitting on the famous nightclub bus. There was not much discomfort in the impression, just remember that the TV on the car had a Thai entertainment program for one night. Throughout the night, the car was filled with a sense of joy and confusion. After I put my baggage and found a good place, I swept around. The sleeper bus was divided into two layers, about 20 different bunks. When you are lying down, the quilt is very cold. It is recommended to bring your own sleeping bag. After looking around for a week, I immediately found a problem, that is, this bus did not! Have! toilet! Where! Suddenly the whole person is not good. Asked the older sister in front, she told me that there is no toilet in this kind of car, and the driver will be unified on the road to let everyone go to the toilet ==. This new discovery makes me a lazy person with a lot of urinary urgency. A lot of hot water and warm water in front of the car were all stuffed to Mr. Huang. The first stop of the bus was after an hour or two. Everyone took a coat and hurriedly got out of the car. I also stumbled behind everyone. Who knows that I have to pay for the entrance to the toilet. I didn’t have a wallet and just grabbed a big brother around me and asked if he could borrow me a dollar. Later, I only remembered when I borrowed money, I only asked the shop where I forgot to ask which car (it stopped more than one of us). At that time, the black wind was high, and I was originally a severely blind patient, so even if I carefully scanned my potential “savior” for a long time, I was still disappointed. So this money became a lifetime debt. So sad. The second stop was around two o’clock in the night. This time I learned an important life skill, that is, snow in the toilet! And this skill will play an important role many times in the next few days. Because the northern Xinjiang is sparsely populated, and most of the attractions and ticket offices in the winter are closed, it is often impossible to find a toilet for a few hours. I think of Master Shi’s description of the night bus in the snow: the car stops, the boys are in front of the car, the girls are behind the car, and this is solved. Although it sounds incomprehensible, it is probably the same, but it is farther away. I suddenly remembered that Fu Zhen wrote that she and Mingji were climbing the Luo Laima Mountain in “The Best Golden Turtles for Wine”. In order to protect the environment, two people took turns to squat in a plastic bag. In fact, when the natural environment is relatively bad, many people’s psychological needs in civilized society will be reduced or even disappeared, because the survival needs will be constantly highlighted, and many of the remaining things will naturally become less unbearable. . The overnight bus usually arrives at one or two in the morning.Staying on the side of the road for two or three hours is a mandatory requirement to ensure the driver’s spirit and passenger safety. The heating on the bus in the middle of the night was unusually wide. I was so bored that I couldn’t get out of the car. I found that there was snow falling through the scattered road lights. I reached out and tried to catch them. So they fell on my sleeves like this. I took a closer look, it was really a six-petal snowflake. The place where we parked and rested was Karamay, not far from the Urg Devil City. After a long day of tossing, I finally fell asleep in the snow and snow outside the window and the sweltering heat in the car.
    Day 2 Seeing Hemu at the beginning – hiding at the end of the world for Christmas
    The bus arrived at Burqin around 9 am. Master Shen has been waiting outside the car. Because the time of arrival of the vehicle every day is uncertain, he needs to come here in advance. After picking up us, Master Shen took us to wash and eat breakfast. At first, I thought I could take a shower, and I took a lot of clothes happily. When I went in, I found that I could only brush my teeth and wash my face. Both of them had a big slogan on their faces. Breakfast is traditional Kazakh style. Bolsaack tasted a bit like our fritters, but the shape is boxy. Milk tea is also very good. There are also toast pieces, homemade jams and a variety of side dishes. Compared to Tibet, where rice is difficult to cook, Xinjiang’s food does not need to be adapted at all. This place where the big mouthfuls of meat are drunk is a kind of enjoyment for us. After breakfast, we went to the opposite grocery store to buy some supplies. Master Shen helped us prepare some fruits, and an artifact, stockings! That’s right, it’s the legendary black silk. Today, Mr. Huang will enjoy the welfare of hundreds of millions of female compatriots for the first time, and feel the sexy and slim hahaha wearing black silk. In fact, the black silk is used as a snow cover, and the effect is really good. In the next five days, two pairs of black silk protects Mr. Huang from the sourness of the boots.
    
    <Prepared a lot of masks but forgot to bring, I had to go to the small store temporarily to buy two >
    The car slowly drove off Burqin and headed for Hemu. A variety of horses and cattle were seen along the way. Master Shen said that in the next few days, we will see more animals than people. When we got off the bus and took pictures, Master Shen picked a lot of branches, because some of the experience of the predecessors knew that it was the hahaha used to string his unique kebabs. The saliva must flow down. The snow stopped at this moment. The road is very good. At the end of the road is the rolling snow-capped mountains. From time to time, there will be sunshine on it, and it will be like a dream. There will be many small villages along the road. The stars are covered with gingerbread-shaped wooden houses. Surrounded by snow, the whole picture is like a fairy tale world. We stopped and patted along the road, and wanted to use the camera to record all the incredible and heartfelt feelings in front of us, but as Eason said, we always try to record everything with the camera, but eyes and memory are our best equipment.

    The thicker the snow, the closer it is to the snow, and the road has also encountered a snow sweeper. Fortunately, we are not the first car that we have opened today, so it is still a smooth road. At about 4 pm to Hemu Village, because of the longitude relationship, the actual time in Xinjiang is two hours later than us, so it can still be regarded as lunch time. Our home in Hemu is a Kazakh home. The hostess seems to be the school’s director of teaching. When we arrived, they were slaughtering cattle at the door, and three or five people were slaughtered around a cow. They were still bloody and shocking.
    <Snow sweeper>
    The room we stayed in had two single beds, which were simple but clean. The only tragedy is that although there are toilets in the room, the water pipes of Hemu have been stopped for some time. The southerners who loved to bathe said that they were very sad when they heard this tragedy. They didn’t feel that they were too dirty. They just got used to taking a shower every day and suddenly they couldn’t wash them for a few days, especially after the overnight bus. There is also an unforgettable magical existence that is a dry toilet. A dry toilet is an outdoor toilet. It is usually separated from the main house. Most of them have no doors, and some do not even have a roof. When you are in the toilet, you can feel the wind blowing in. PP was cold for a while. T T. In the past few days in northern Xinjiang, we have used aqua plenums many times. We just want to say that the weather of minus ten or twenty degrees can only go to the dry toilets. Every time I go to the toilet, I have to do a long pep talk. Lunch is a pull. It is a traditional Kazakh cuisine. A bit like our noodles. It is a large dish with a large serving. Then pour all the side dishes. taste good. Anyway, I have eaten several bowls of hahahaha. After a short break, we want to take a shot of Hemu Village in the sun before sunset. Unfortunately, it was too late to go out. In less than ten minutes, the sun disappeared. It’s really a super-life thing to climb a slope in a snow that is more than a meter thick. After the sunset, the temperature plummeted, and we squatted behind the Master Shen for the early morning observation tour. The fog of the Hemu Bridge tumbling, coupled with the forests on both sides and the snow-capped mountains behind it, as well as the faint sunset glow, is beautiful and magnificent. On one side of the bridge is a large piece of virgin forest, with many snow mushrooms stacked under the bridge. Not far away, the night falls, the sky if there is no blue, the whole Hemu Village becomes extremely cold and unattainable, as if sleeping far away at the end of the world

    Day 3 World End and Cold Wonderland
    This morning is the top priority of this trip. We are going to the observation deck of Hemu Village to see the morning fog. In fact, the reason why we ran to this corner in this cold weather is precisely because we saw the picture of the winter fog in the winter. The so-called end of the world and the cold wonderland are probably just that.
    It is only a ten-minute road from the village to the observation deck when it is not snowing. However, because the snow is too thick, the road to the observation deck has long been flooded. Fortunately, some people have passed by in the past few days, so there is no need to step through the snow. But the place of the ladder becomes a slippery and steep uphill, and many times you need to use your hands and feet. The gloves were in contact with the snow and soon became wet. I felt that my fingers were about to fall. When I looked up, I found that my eyelashes were all frosty. If I didn’t wear a good mask, it would be frozen and frozen into a whole piece. In order not to miss the sunrise, we panted and marched forward. The body is not so cold because of the movement, only the hands and feet feel that they do not belong to themselves. I suddenly remembered that when climbing a volcano in Bali, the slope of the mountain was very large. There was almost no vegetation near the top of the mountain, and there was no obvious road. We could only follow the guide and use it with a big gasp. Tired, there is only one step left in sight. It is precisely in this state that people’s attention is most concentrated. Advance is your only choice. There is no retreat or hesitation. It’s hard to climb a snowy mountain without such distractions. Because the hands and feet and the frozen red nose are constantly reminding you of the cold. Even if you are moving forward, it is difficult to concentrate. The sun just rose when we finally climbed onto the observation deck.
    At first, the whole world was a cold blue, slowly like a curtain, the gingerbread house was gradually immersed in the blue and orange alternating warmth, until the whole village was bathed in In the sun. The whole process is slow and solemn. As the temperature rises, there is a thick white mist on the Hemu River, which dances between the virgin forest and the village. As the sun climbed higher, the village gradually rose. The sky is blue, the snow is white, the fog is golden, the tree is green, and the entire Hemu Village seems to be a long Christmas.

    I had a crazy camera with Mr. Huang for a long time, but the body suddenly became cold because of the sudden rest, and quickly went home before I couldn’t help myself. When I left, I wanted to take a picture with my mobile phone. The result was taken out, but it was silently shut down in a dozen seconds. Downhill roads, such as slides, are good to think about going back to the heating room or sticking your teeth.
    
    There is still a safety issue about watching the morning fog. We met a couple when we went up the mountain. They also wanted to go to the viewing platform, but because they didn’t know that the road had been wandering in the snow for more than an hour. In winter, the temperature in northern Xinjiang will plummet before sunrise or after sunset. It is really not a joke to stay outdoors for a long time. And this MM itself is hypoglycemic, with enough food to carry, boys do not even have gloves, plus lost, it is really dangerous. Therefore, it is recommended that friends coming in the future should prepare appropriate equipment according to their actual situation, and even if there is no time to step on the point, they must ask the specific direction and route to start.
    On the way down the mountain, we and Mr. Huang suddenly heard a few strange sounds. I was scared to stand up in an instant. I thought it would not be a wolf. Later, listening carefully was like mourning. Going closer, I found out that the MM I just met was crying. The heartbreaking voice, I can’t help but cry when I hear my tears. In fact, I also asked myself why I can’t find a comfortable place to sunbathe and go shopping for a big meal. I have to go to this ice and snow to ask for it. I think of a colleague and sister of Mr. Huang who describes us like this: They seem to have a special ability, which can surpass the super power of life without the money and money in their pockets. I think this is what travel brings to us. From the hard seat of the 49-hour graduation trip to the hitchhike in Lhasa, I started from the first time I went abroad to go to Chiang Mai to take a trip to give myself a wedding photo. We have seen a lot of beautiful scenery. I have met many people. I also feel a lot of different lifestyles. Although Mr. Huang always said that I have some social phobia, I think I am still a good observer. Every process of mixing the blood of the day brings me closer to my heart. After all, you have to have a choice to make a choice. If there is only one way in your cognition that can lead to the bright future you want, then there is no question of choice. What’s more, there is no such thing as a good future, because at this moment is the best thing you have. There is no path to happiness, the path itself is happiness.
    Strolling to the home while shaking. I rushed into the room and stuck myself on the radiator. I am alive. The owner has prepared breakfast. We simply ate some porridge and side dishes, and we were ready to start another important agenda today, taking the horse-drawn sleigh to the beautiful peak. The horse-drawn sleigh is definitely a kind of magical existence that you must experience before you sit down and experience it once and never take it for the second time. Because most of the trips are uphill, it takes nearly two hours to get a horse-drawn sleigh from Hemu Village to Meifeng. One meter eighty-five Huang said that it is really sad to shrink in a corner and be cold and unable to move. The place where I sat was not very large. After I squeezed the two of us, the master controlled the horse at the end of the sled. A particularly steep place on the uphill needs to walk down. Occasionally, the downhill feels like flying in the playground. In fact, winter is really hard for the aborigines, and all the supplies need to be transported through horse-drawn sleighs. Sitting on a horse-drawn sleigh for a few minutes and using it every day to ensure that life is completely different concept. It’s already quite painful for us to go back and forth, not to mention that they often need to go up and down every day.
    
    I was shocked by the scenery of Hemu to the beautiful peak. It seems as if the snow is so overwhelming. Occasionally, horses are encountered on the road, and in order to graze, a hole with a circular pattern is cut out on the snow slope. Two hours after the horse was moving at full speed, the master pointed to our right side and said: This is the beautiful peak.
    Then I saw a beautiful and indescribable picture. The background of the picture is a layered virgin forest, so tall and heavy, occupying a large proportion of the picture. A little closer is a few small shrubs, because the smog becomes white and cool. Near the picture is the boundless snow. In the sunshine, a little starlight shines. The whole picture is hot and cold, like the desperation at the end of the world, next to the hope of the stars.

    There are only eight households in the entire beautiful peak. There are two children in this family we are going to visit. When we enter the door, the younger son stands at the door and smiles at us. The lovely heart will melt. He still has a brother who is in elementary school in Hemu and only returns home once a week. At noon we ate a handful of rice at their home and once again fully affirmed Xinjiang cuisine. Unfortunately, this family is a Kazakh, not very Chinese, so communication is very limited. The homestay here is usually a row of rooms connected together, with a kitchen in the middle and a large room next to the reception. I and Mr. Huang are thinking about whether this is a parallel world in that big room or whether there will be a day to reach us.

    Day 4 “Build a snowman by yourself, give it a look and smile at it”
    I am leaving Hemu today. Of course, there is still a major agenda before leaving Hemu, a mission that is meaningful to me and Mr. Huang for more than 20 years of life – snowman! Hahahaha ask not to laugh. Children in the north may not understand the southerners’ obsession with snow. It’s rare, you haven’t seen a typhoon yet. Before the snowman, I joked with Mr. Huang about whether to check the snowman strategy. He refused categorically. However, when I really started to pile up, I found out that this is definitely a technical job. The temperature is too low, and the snow tends to form a block, not a sand, and it is difficult to pile up together to form a shape. The result is that the smaller we pile, the smaller and smaller the pile, so the snowman who imagined the real high is turned into a mini version. I put him in Mr. Huang’s hat, then went to the room and grabbed two grapes and a carrot stick for breakfast. Dangdang, the smiling snowman Jun would like to meet you like this hahaha. As the first attempt, we said that we are quite satisfied with hahahaha. I suddenly remembered that I had a circle of friends in February, and I wrote something that I saw at the time that I felt particularly loved: I piled a snow by myself.Man, give it eyes and give it a smile. I remember that I especially wanted to go to Mohe, but I didn’t make it. I did not expect to realize this wish on the other side of the motherland a few months later. So, if you want a wish, you still have something to do. If it is realized, hahahaha.

    From Hemu to Kanas all the way. From the ticket office of Kanas Scenic Area to Kanas, all the way through the Camelback Bay and Huali Valley, there is a long smog promenade near Wolong Bay, which is just like a fairyland. I asked Master Shen that he would be so tired when he came so often. He said no, every time the scenery comes different in winter.

    The focus along the road is to photograph the famous Three Bays: Wolong Bay, Moon Bay and Shenxian Bay. With the water, the whole picture appears to be fluid and full of spirituality.

    After shooting Sanwan, Kanas Village is also close at hand. Because the B&B here does not have a water bath, considering that the southerner of Tsundere has not been bathing for three days, he is already in a semi-crash state, so he decided to change to Kanas Mountain Villa. After a warm hot bath, two people were full of blood. Taking into account the problems of time and photography equipment, we did not go up to the fish platform and decided to go to Kanas Lake. In the summer, it is the starting point of the cruise ship, and it is full of people. In winter, this is the place for our party. The guests are snow-capped mountains, forests, lakes, and snow mushrooms everywhere. The next day is my 18th birthday. In such an empty world, there is no better birthday present, with high sings and beautiful scenery.

    Day 5 Kanas snow and haze
    Today, Master Shen came to pick us up to shoot in Shenxian Bay. It is a pity that the heavens are not beautiful, and there is almost no fog on the fairy bay. Try to get to the vicinity of Wolong Bay by car, but because the temperature is not low enough, it will return without success. However, there are sporadic smog in Shenxian Bay, and it suddenly starts to snow, and the sky is white. I and Mr. Huang were rolling in the snow while playing all kinds of shots, and they had a good time.

    The owner of the B&B prepared a lunch break, and we both played a snowball on the side of the road. I grabbed a handful of snow from the roadside piled up on the roadside and threw it to Mr. Huang. Although the attack area is large, the lethality is very limited. Although Mr. Huang has shown his humility and loyalty on weekdays, his heart is very heavy. When I attacked, I calmly dodge. Both hands actually caught a lot of snow in their hands. He said that it would be painful to be held in a group. T T. Is it really a husband? !
    
    < After finishing the snow, return to good. >
    After lunch, we drove all the way to White Haba. In fact, it is reasonable to say that Northern Xinjiang is called Little Switzerland. Both of these places have an important feature that the most beautiful scenery is always on the road. Whether driving in Northern Xinjiang or taking a train in Switzerland, let them drive like this, but the eyes will not feel tired, because the sights are beautiful. On the way to Baihaba, there is a road that is very difficult to open. The snow has piled up very thickly, and there are no vehicles in the past two days. If you accidentally, you will be trapped inside.

    In the middle of the road we also married a friend on foot. In Inner Mongolia, starting in April, all the way to Qinghai, Yunnan and then to Tibet, Xinjiang, the most amazing is that he also took a dog at home. In fact, we have encountered hikers on this road. It is really admirable, because winter hiking in northern Xinjiang is really not the same as summer. It is really not easy to walk outside for a few hours. However, because there is no signal on this road, and there is no obvious road sign, I heard that Master Shen said that there are wolves on some roads, so I still need to be cautious.
    
    When you arrive at White Haba, the owner of the home is not there. We put down our luggage and went to the village. Master Shen said that the other side of the mountain at the entrance to the village is Kazakhstan. White Haba has a border defense station. It is usually necessary to have a border defense certificate to come here, but it is not used in winter. When you go, remember not to take pictures in the direction of the border defense station. It is said that the sentinel will find it and will catch it. After a small round around, we decided to go to the small shop to buy some snacks. The entering store is called an honest shop, and there is a moving dog at the door. Open the curtain and feel that the whole picture is like a painting. Very heavy retro. I glanced at the things I was selling and felt like I was back in the 1980s. Especially like the small shop of the old family. The owner of the hotel decided to spend the night in the Haba River because of the temporary decision, so we would have no vegetables to eat at night. In these places in winter, you should eat vegetables from outside. However, Master Shen gave us a pot full of potatoes and beef stew. Really a big pot. The four of us (and one of our younger brothers) still had a lot to eat while chatting, and they had to wait for the next day’s breakfast. Xinjiang people are very cool, and the dishes are also a special market. When they see the exquisite cuisine in the south, they are not used to it, and they don’t have enough hahaha. I suddenly remembered that Master Shen had said that when the conditions were not good, the Xinjiang people had to eat meat. It’s funny to think about it.

    Day 6 Last Snow Party
    Today is the last day in northern Xinjiang. Because we had to catch the night bus back to Urumqi, we had to leave early for breakfast. Breakfast is naturally the potato stewed beef last night. In the past few days in northern Xinjiang, I felt that I was not beef-flavored or mutton-flavored. Sometimes I felt that my face was running out of oil. Master Shen said that it is definitely not a problem to stay here for a while. I suddenly want to leave Mr. Huang to fly back to Hahaha. The first stop on the way is the Grand Canyon on the border of China and Kazakhstan. In fact, it is really difficult to record with such a magnificent camera. So it is better to freeze yourself in the snow and feel it quietly for a while.

    On the road, two shepherds were caught in a large group of sheep. Give up the road. So our car had to follow slowly. Shen Shifu whistle gestured. The two shepherds immediately acted tacitly. A horse galloped to the front of the flock. The other whip at the end of the flock to speed them up. In this way, the two men cooperated one after the other, and at the right time, the flock was rushed to a small piece of open space on the left side, and finally cleared a lane in a corner. For Shen Master, this kind of scene is probably not strange, but it is really interesting for us.

    In the place that is approaching the colorful beach, a dozen camels suddenly appeared on the roadside. Master Shen stopped the car on the side of the road, and the two of us fled to the camel happily. I have never been in close contact with camels. When I got to the front, I found out that it was really tall. And the attitude of walking is super funny, and the gracefulness of the gracefulness is probably the feeling. A pair of eyes looked at you innocently, and the expression was like an alpaca. It was awkward to chew on the mouth of the mouth. Anyway, the whole is joy.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    In the place where we arrived in Burqin, we came to the last stop in northern Xinjiang, the colorful beach. The ticket is one person 50. In fact, even the door is not open, and there is no ticket. It is a small brother who is watching the door and puts the money on the side and puts you in. When I entered the door, I met a Guangdong tour group and went out. I suddenly found that I have never seen so many people in a long time. Hahaha.
    Colorful beach is the land of Yadan. The only Irtysh River in China that was injected into the Arctic Ocean passed through the colorful beach scenic spot. The northern bank of the river is a cliff-shaped Yadan landform formed by river impact and wind erosion. Because the minerals contained in the rocks are not suitable, they present a variety of different colors, hence the name “Colorful Beach”. The south bank of the river is a vast forest. There is also a large wind power network in the distance. There are observation decks at all angles in the scenic area, which are connected into a ring. If you are not in a hurry, it is recommended to take a walk slowly, because the scenery seen at each angle is different. There are almost no tourists in the winter, and the bleak atmosphere is particularly striking with the sturdy rock surface and the end of the mountains.

    Leaving the colorful beach, our trip to Northern Tibet is close to the end. The final highlight is that Master Shen invited us to eat a super delicious large-scale chicken, once again admire the fighting power of the Xinjiang people. This large-scale chicken is absolutely genuine and worth a few yards larger than what we usually go to restaurants. Before leaving Burqin, we also bought a large row of tea for local people to use for milk tea. Milk tea control said to bring the Xinjiang flavor home. Haha. There is no doubt that the night on the bus is twisty and long. I will not repeat the other kinds of hardships. I just remember that if you want to take a long-distance bus here, remember to wear a mask and a wet tissue. After you get on the bus, wipe the mask with a few wipes and then bring it on, then you are likely to bring it. I was directly stinky and died in the car.
    Day7 violent walking Urumqi
    Today, the fog is so big that the curtains that open the room can only hear the morning exercises of the elementary school outside the window, but nothing can be seen. Let me think of a sentence that the swallow said that made me laugh. She said that you know how serious the smog in Beijing is. It is to wake up in the morning and open the curtains and think that you are paralyzed. = =. Finally, one day in Urumqi, I was planning to go skiing, but listening to a driving master said that Urumqi is still too thin for snow. So we blew away all day in Urumqi. Beginning at the International Grand Bazaar and Erdaoqiao Grand Bazaar, it ends at Xingfu Road Food Street. In the middle, I went to the People’s Theatre to watch a Mars rescue. Sure enough, it is atypical tourists. Last time I watched a movie on the road or in Kuala Lumpur, I watched a “hangover” that would not be released in China. However, it is important to remind everyone to pay attention to the valuables in the vicinity of the Grand Bazaar. I almost stole the cell phone at the Grand Bazaar, because I needed to pull the curtain when I was in and out of the Grand Bazaar. Just in the moment I went to pull the curtain, I saw someone pulling my jacket pocket and I heard the pocket. The sound of the zipper being pulled open. I quickly rushed out with my hand to protect my pocket. Although the mobile phone has been saved, people are scared, but they feel that everything is happening too fast. T T.
    Day 8 returning home
    It was another day on the plane. Everyone remembers that I have to go to the airport earlier, because the traffic at the Diwobao Airport is very large. It happened that we had a bad weather and the delay was very bad. The counter staff was not enough. So we queued for the luggage for an hour and a half. There are only five or six teams in the front of the two open counters. It is enough to sit on a plane.
    Goodbye Altay
    This winter. We watched the sun rise from the top of the mountain in the snow of minus twenty degrees. Warmed the entire grass. This winter. On my 27th birthday, we squatted in an open space outside the Kanas Mountain Villa, shaking and counting the stars. This winter. I saw that the whole world in front of me was full of Christmas trees, and the whole northern Xinjiang seemed to be a long Christmas. (End of the article)
