Tian Chi (Xinjiang)

Urumqi, China

100Kms from Urumqi is a divinely beautiful lake, called the Tian Chi. This crescent-shaped lake nestles near the Bogda Peak and has a mysterious aura around it. It is called the Pearl of Heavenly Mountain (Tianshan mountain). With melting snow as its source, the lake has crystal clear blue water throughout the year. Serenity and beauty are the two words that come to mind as soon as you see the lake. The region around the lake has an abundance of green alpine forests, colorful flowers, clear skies, fresh air, glaciers, and snow-capped peaks. It definitely sounds like heaven!
