:: Xinjiang Day 2 - 烏老木齊--天山天池 Tianchi Lake--五彩城

2007 Jul 23:
We woke up early in the morning to join the two other cars with a group of Shanghainese.  They also joined the drivers we booked and they will have the same route as we do.
Our first
destination was 天山天池, full of tourists and obviously a commercial tourist spot which required an expensive entrance fee. 
Next stop we went to 五彩城 in 五彩湾 through 戈壁灘 at 準噶尔盆地.  We stayed in a 蒙古包.  It was full of stars at night and I even saw the galaxy and three shooting stars.

peaceful isn't it.  i just love places like these.
so we arrived 天山天池.  trust me, it was not all that good.
the entrance was RMB100 per person.  we parked here and started walking.
此景只應天上有-天山天池.
in my humble opinion, I cannot agree with that at all.
