Reviews of Heavenly Lake

Nestled at 1,980m Lake Tianchi is close to Turpan, one of the Silk Road's trading posts. Surrounded by the peaks of the Tian Shan range, the lake is nicknamed ' Heaven Lake'.

My suggestion:
Take a boat ride at sunset! The light is stunning - warm colors glitter on crystal clear waters, all against a snowy, mountainous backdrop.
During the winter months of mid-October to mid-June, its waters freeze over. And later, as it slowly melts, the lake returns to its deep blue color. In summertime, Kazakh shepherds bring their horses and flocks of sheep to graze on the green pastures of Tian Shan's slopes. Some families open their doors to visitors - enjoy the experience of staying over in a traditional yurt !
