Kanas Lake in Xinjiang

Kanas Lake, lying in a valley in the Altai Mountains, is located near the very northern tip of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. "Kanas" is a Mongolian word meaning "lake in the canyon." The lake is famous for its fantastic natural landscape and mysterious local legend. It is surrounded by thick layers of forest, and the color of the water changes according to different seasons, weather and depth. In autumn, the lake becomes a kaleidoscope of colors of gold, red, blue and green. In 1980, Kanas Nature Reserve was founded as a part of the Kanas Lake area and is now considered a paradise for travelers and hikers. more photos>>
