Heaven Lake

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Heaven Lake is 110 kilometers or 68 miles east of Urumqi and a car ride from the capital will take around 3 hours. The lake is 2,000 meters or 6,500 feet above sea level on the stunning Bogda Mountain. This large pristine lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and snow-capped mountains. The steep Heavenly Mountains or Tianshan are densely packed with pine and cypress trees as well as fields of wild flowers and herbs. Visitors will be struck by the grandness of the natural environment and to truly enjoy the splendor of the lake should plan on staying overnight.
Many visitors choose to stay in a traditional Kazakh yurt, which is an unforgettable cultural experience. Once the tour buses have left in the late afternoon the lake is peaceful and magical. Tourists can go for strolls on the mountain paths and the more athletic can hike or ride a horse up to the glacier plains where the scenery is simply stunning.
