Upon arrival, visit to Flaming Mountain. It is the hottest place in China with the highest temperature around 47.8 °C (118 °F) and surface temperature over 70 °C (158 °F) in summer. It became very popular due to a classical Chinese novel, The Journey to the West by the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) writer, Wu Cheng'en, and its charming hero - the Monkey King. Then, visit to Kan'erjing Folk Custom Park (Karez systems). Karez systems are the life source of Turpan. In a sense, without them, there would be no Turpan culture. According to records, the history of the karez in Xinjiang dates back to 103B.C. Currently there are still over 400 systems. Karez are very delicate irrigation systems made up of vertical wells, underground canals, above-ground canals and small reservoirs.

The city of Lanzhou lies at the geographical heart of China, the capital of Gansu province, is a major transportation and industrial center and was an important stop on the Silk Road that linked China's ancient capital Xi'an with Central Asia and the Roman Empire. Lanzhou lies in the eastern part of Gansu Province along the Yellow River. On the map, the long, narrow province that carried Marco Polo to the eastern Middle Kingdom bears a slight resemblance to Italy. The foot of Gansu's 'boot' sits squarely between Qinghai and Shaanxi provinces, while its long, crooked leg reaches all the way to Xinjiang Province.

Have a Yellow River Tour in Lanzhou. Visit to Zhongshan Bridge, the First Bridge over the Yellow River. Before Zhongshan Bridge was built there were many floating bridges over the Yellow River, but only one existed for a relatively long period. Used for over 500 years, the Zhen Yuan Floating Bridges was finally retired in 1909, when an iron bridge was built. This new bridge is what we call the First Bridge over the Yellow River. Yellow River Mother Sculpture, it was appraised as a piece of excellent work in the First Chinese City Sculpture Design Contest. The Yellow River Mother Sculpture has become a landmark building of Lanzhou. Then visit to The Waterwheel Garden. Lanzhou is the only city through which the Yellow River flows; there are thus many irrigation machines in the city.

  • 因新疆、丝绸之路地域辽阔,坐车时间较长,建议携带一些零食或干粮在身上,以备不时之需。
  • 行程所列为城市之间的距离和时间仅供参考,因各地高速公路有限速和多段路上安检,且旅游途中不可预测的因素多,因此城市至景点车程和距离以实际状况为准,不便之处敬请见谅。
  • 因行程路途较为遥远,且内陆地区资源较为缺乏,餐厅条件有限,司导会根据车程及实际每天行程安排来调整用餐时间和地点。
  • 若景点因不可预测的因素闭园或无法游览,本公司保留放弃或更改景点的权利。
