Water Body
Enjoy the remoteness and serenity of the area surrounding Kanas Lake, formed by glacial movement over 200,000 years ago. The crescent-shaped lake sits in a valley surrounded by tree-covered hills. Over 170 bird species inhabit the lakeshore, making this an ideal spot for getting to know the country's varied animal life. If bird-watching seems a bit passive, engage in popular recreational activities like rock climbing, paragliding, camping, or hiking. Make Kanas Lake part of your personalized Burqin County itinerary using our Burqin County vacation route planner.

  • 喀納斯湖是位於新疆北部阿勒泰深山密林中的高山湖泊,海拔1,374公尺,東西長25公里,平均寬2公里,面績約40平方公里,湖水最深處達188公尺,屬冰水性淡水湖,是中國唯一的北極海水系~布爾津河的發源地。湖面群峰倒影,湖水還會隨著季節和天氣的變化而時常變換顏色,是有名的「變色湖」。800年前,成吉思汗西征路過喀納斯湖時,被喀納斯湖的美景所吸引,親自下馬歡捧湖水,仰頭痛飲,所以後人都把喀納斯湖的水稱作「王者之水」。
