  • It is worth to see the heavenly mountain and the Lake being a beautiful landscape in itself and contemplate with what love and harmony come up the Chinese to admire nature. Get from Urumqi is: 1.-take a bus which leaves at 09.00 from the north end of the Park of the village (50 Yuan) 2.-take the bus at the entrance of the park that climbs to the top of the mountain (entry cheapest 215 Yuan (does not include see a yurt or a drink)) 3. take an electric car (20 Yuan) to reach the heavenly Lake and see the snows of the glacier at the Summit of the mountain. From there, i.e. once at the level of the Lake, you can catch a shuttle (80 yuan) for a walk along the Lake; the boat leaves in a staircase which leads to the two small Buddhist temples that are on the side of the mountains if don't want to pay the tour by boat You can walk to two temples, or the first at least, because the stage is very suggestive.
