Xinjiang Day 12 - 喀什 Kashgar--塔什库尔干 Tashkurgan (塔县) Tajik
2007 Aug 02: Through the 314 National Highway 国道, we took off from Kashgar 喀什 and headed to Tajik 塔县. During the way we went through various spots such as Karakul Lake 喀勒库力湖 and Mt. Muztagata 慕士塔格峰 (Father of mountains). We arrived 塔县 in the afternoon, lunch (more like a dinner as it was late afternoon) and strolled around for the local markets. We also hanged out with some local Uygur 维吾尔族 for some picture shooting. We stayed at the 慕士塔格宾馆.
