Heavenly Lake   

115 km northeast of Urumqi at an elevation of 1980m, the small deep-blue lake is surrounded by hills covered with fir trees and grazed by horses. Scattered around are the yurts of the Kazakh people who inhabit the mountains; nearby are the 5445m-high Bogda Peak and some other snow-covered ones in Tianshan Range.

Labeled as a Chinese version of Swiss lakes, the area is frequently touristed in the summer months and offers a range of activities including horseback riding, hiking, boating and authentic yurt accommodation.
