Amazing Kanas Road Trip | Summer North XinJiang | China

Do you know the academy award movie couple of years ago《Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon》by Ang Lee? I stood on the fantastic rocks of billion years and couldn’t believe if this was not my on-duty flight, I might probably not visit such an amazing exotic place.

然無法踏上敦煌石窟的時光機之旅,於是我們決定前往喀納斯避暑,一睹傳說中的有喀納斯湖水怪的仙林密境。第一站,新疆魔鬼城 (Ghost City),電影《臥虎藏龍》等武俠片的外景拍攝場地。

 

 

There is a slang: “If you have never been to Xin Jiang, you will never know how big China is! ” Xin Jiang is on the border between China and Russia. In the Ancient Time, “Silk Road” was the only connecting access for the Businessmen to the East or the West thousands of years ago.

For us, I mean, the young generation, that is totally a mysterious place because it is far away and not easy to deal with the locals. We knew it only from the history books in our student life or the geography/travel channels.

I got the chance to have the flight in summer so luckily from Taipei to Urümqi, the capital of Xin Jiang in China. That was my third time on-duty flight.  My colleagues are so nice and we planned before departure and booked a tour from the travel agency named CITS XINJIANG  for 4 days and 3 nights to the legend and beautiful Kanas Lake, where the locals call “East Switzerland”.

聽說敦煌石窟快要被封閉,一生能有幾次可以踏上這遙不可及的路程,好想探索當時魏晉南北朝的歷史奧秘。於是臨時向中國當地的旅行社詢價敦煌行程,一開始聽到才一千多人民幣,每個人超開心,結果詳細一問之下,那只包含火車的費用,其他通通不包!最後加加減減下來的費用,也要兩千多人民幣。

正值夏季,當地可是非常炙熱乾燥,旅行社都建議大家前往喀納斯避暑比較適合,大家最後只好忍痛放棄傳說中的敦煌,前往像仙境般的喀納斯。

最後決定交給「新疆中國國際旅行社」辦理,新疆有多大,自由行習慣的我們,真的不跟團不行,更重要的是,這次的同事們都超有默契,於是,6人「東方瑞士- 喀納斯湖汽車四日遊」,準備啟程。

 

 

很快地,準備要去一個神秘的地方探險,整裝出發!

I’m going to start a new adventure soon. A secret place I’ve never been to. Ready to go!

 

Journey Started From Ürümchi

 

早上8點,大家在飯店大廳集合出發,一旁還有別的車子準備載其他組員去天山天池,我們一開始走錯方向要前往那輛車,結果,突然一聲丹田宏亮的嗓音:「欸!」(表示我在這裡!),大家都被這聲音震住了,沒有頭緒地走向這輛車。

是的,這是我們這四天三夜的駕駛兼導遊:來自昌吉市的王師傅!當然,他名不叫師傅,只是當地某些職業都習慣用「師傅」尊稱,我們也覺得有趣,整路捲舌音地稱呼他。

但好笑的是,上車之後,師傅一開始說的話口音太重,我們沒有一個人聽得懂,一直「蛤?!蛤?!蛤?!」要他說很多遍,我們才能猜出他要表達什麼,我覺得他應該很想打爆我們的腦袋,內心os你們這群小鬼頭!

當然這是開玩笑的,王師傅非常地好相處,好像爸爸一般,最自豪載過「黃曉明」去拍戲,還秀照片給我們看,在路邊也會買當地特產的西瓜和哈密瓜給我們吃。有趣的是,到底是師傅被我們影響,後面幾天口音越來越像標準的「普通話」,他說的話我們都可以聽得懂,還是,我們已經耳濡目染這環境,聽得懂他的鄉音了?!

 

新疆魔鬼城 Ghost City

 

 

烏市- 布爾津,單程距離700公里,全程高速沿著國道赴邊境小城市布爾津,沿途參觀奇特的雅丹風蝕地貌。我們從烏魯木齊一路坐了5至6個小時的車才到達第一站,電影《臥虎藏龍》和《天地英雄》武俠片的外景拍攝場地,實際參觀的時間約1小時,真的超有臨場感的!

位在烏爾禾的魔鬼城,看大自然的鬼斧神工,遠方是百里油田以及上下揮動機械手臂的千台採油機,採集石油(當地人稱黑色血液)的壯觀景象。

魔鬼城又稱爾禾風城,位於準戈爾盆地西北邊緣的佳木河下游烏爾禾礦區,西南距離卡拉瑪依市100公里,有一處獨特的風蝕地貌,形狀怪異。當地的蒙古人稱此成為「蘇魯木哈克」,哈薩克人稱「沙依坦克爾西」,意思為魔鬼城。

這裡看不見一草一木,到處是黑色的礦石沙海,黃色的黏土雕像,在蔚藍的天空下,各種造型唯妙唯肖地在大自然鬼斧神工長期風蝕之下,行成密集而井然有序的砂岩奇景形貌。

魔鬼城在蒼芒大漠的戈壁地形之中儼然是一座的城堡,在風蕭中巍然屹立著,卻又散發著霸氣與孤寂的氣息。

展開一場旅行吧 (Let’s start a new journey!)搭車遊園區,可惜都只停一下下,而且沿路還放什麼鐵達尼號的歌。

雲朵一片片在眼前,眼前這一切是雅丹地貌,千百萬年風化的岩石。爬到最頂端,很多壯觀的紅土,看著千百萬年的一切。

So, let’s enjoy the first stop on the first day. Do you know the academy award movie couple of years ago《Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon》by Ang Lee? The Ghost City, which is a name from the Yardang, a streamlined protuberance carved from bedrock or any consolidated or semiconsolidated material by the dual action of wind abrasion by dust and sand.

 

布爾津市區 Dinner in Burqin County

 

 

又開了4個小時的車,日落才從魔鬼城抵達布爾津,話說布爾津的夜間是美食家的快樂時光,遊客基本上都會到夜市一飽口福。但不用想像這裡的夜市和台灣一樣,有很多各式各樣的小吃攤,其實只有一條街,店門口都有碳烤架,每家店賣的東西都大同小異。

這裡首推現烤的鮮香冷水魚,又俗稱狗魚,肉質鮮美,是額爾齊斯河的特產,額爾齊斯河是中國境內唯一一條流入北極海的河流。

我們隨意找了一間店,餐廳內很熱鬧,可以感受相當不錯的異地風味,我們點了一些羊肉和牛肉串,還有可口鮮嫩的烤魚,第一次喝到 (低酒精)的土製啤酒:克瓦斯,口感好像汽水一般,暫時消除把嘴巴裡的椒麻辣感。

第一次吃到蒸面!!好像意麵的口感,超級好吃和辣到酥麻的椒麻雞。

We arrived in Burqin County and enjoyed our dinner in the night market. Don’t expect the night market is so much fun as in Taiwan. They offer normally only BBQ in each restaurant. We ordered the Beef and Lamb BBQ, the famous roast Fish from the Irtysh River. Don’t miss up to drink a glass of Kvass to enjoy the joyful atmosphere with the locals.

 

—旅行小提醒—

新疆地域遼闊,旅途舟車勞頓,再加上氣候早晚溫差大,一定要再帶禦寒衣物,一些基本的藥品如胃藥或是暈車藥等最好出發前要自行攜帶。

 

賈登裕 Jaden valley

 

 

前往喀納斯湖的路上,我在阿爾泰山看這哈薩克的遊牧生活。

On the way to Kanas Lake, we just spontaneously dropped by this Jaden valley in Jiadengyufor a short time. But I saw the different life of the local Kazakhstan people in the Altai Mountains. So amazing!

 

儘管我們是包車行動,前一天舟車勞頓坐了超過十個小時的車,一路上搖搖晃晃也真夠折磨人,導致隔天一早起床仍是睡眼惺忪。早餐只喝了幾口稀飯,狼吞虎嚥地塞了幾個小花捲,將行李就定位上車,繼續從布爾津趕路前往喀納斯湖。

中國內地的高速公路有一些奇怪的規則,我其實不是很懂,總之,不能隨心所欲地開高速前進,太快抵達目的地還會被開罰單,所以都必須要在中間點停一下休息,才會符合政府的規定,這幾天都是這樣一直坐車,下車前還被推銷抱小羊羔。

從布爾津到喀納斯的路上,單程距離200公里,開了近3-4個小時,盤山公路9彎18拐,我們也睡的東倒西歪。快要接近喀納斯的時候,沿途都會看見不少白色蒙古包座落在這片大草原上,這裡都屬於賈登峪生活區,是最貼近哈薩克人生活的地區。

賈登峪是前往喀納斯的門戶,也是通往喀納斯湖景點區的交通關口,這裏海拔1,600米,已經建設成為接待與管理喀納斯旅行的大本營,山區住宿的位置也在此。而且,阿爾泰山全面禁止砍伐林木,這裡有雲杉、西伯利亞松等稀有林木,皆屬於國家保育的範圍。

旅行就是這樣,原本不是在旅行社安排好的行程之內的一個景點,只是因為昏睡完的我們,睜開眼睛覺得這裡好美喔!趕緊讓王師傅停下車,讓我們漫步在充滿遊牧民族色彩的阿爾泰山大草原上,人稱這裡是東方小瑞士,一種阿爾卑斯山的感覺。

每次來新疆,總會聽導遊或是當地人敘述早就遺忘在腦袋的久遠歷史,如果國高中就有機會來這裡的話,對於書本上那些複雜的歷史和地理肯定可以連貫起來,大概連上補習班都不用就能拿高分吧(笑)。

這裡的人稱喀納斯為東方瑞士,我倒也覺得這裡的山脈是東方版的阿爾卑斯山,看見眼前這一片美景,真的有一種讀萬卷書,不如行萬里路的感覺。前進喀納斯的沿途上,儘管看見不少蒙古包,因為時間的關係,我們都沒有要求踏進去參觀,儘管如此,在這裡是一個短暫的美麗回憶。

Keep going on to the first stop of the second day. On the way to Kanas Lake, we just spontaneously dropped by this Jaden valley in Jiadengyu for a very short time. Here is the gate to Kanas.

And I found it amazing that there are lots of white Yurts  which are located in this area for the original nomadic people and you would never see them even in the other cities in China. I saw the different life of the local Kazakhstan people in the Altai Mountains. It’s really nice to receive the real knowledge throw your eyes not only from the books or TV travel channels.

People admire this Kanas area as East Switzerland, but I call it as the East Alpe. There is a flock of sheep and horses living peacefully together on the unreal boundless grassland.

Maybe we are used to live in the urban city for a long time so that we were all stunned by the wonder of the natural so easily.  Every time when I see those views and the life of the locals, even in India, I always keep something in mind. Let the life to be simple! Less desires and more happiness!

 

喀納斯湖 Kanas Lake

 

 

終於,來到傳說中的喀納斯,這是喀納斯湖最有名的月亮灣,清澈寧靜的湖水會隨著季節與天氣的變化而轉換湖水的顏色,因此,喀納斯在蒙古語被譽為「美麗富饒」、「神秘莫測」或是「峽中的湖」之意。

Finally, we arrived at the famous and legend Moon Bay of the amazing Kanas Lake which has the special curves shape with beautiful green mixed blue color inside. People say, the color of the Kanas Lake changes easily according to not only the season but also the weather. In Mongol, Kanas means beautiful, mysterious and the lake of the canyon.

一早從布爾津開車前往位在喀納斯湖以南約30公里的賈登峪,從賈登峪的門票站購買門票和景區區間車(車票和門票實行聯票制),再統一乘坐區間車前往東方瑞士之稱的喀納斯湖。

基本上,區間車約10分鐘一班,乘車的時間約2個半至3個小時,停靠各個景點,沿途參觀美里靜謐的喀納斯標誌景點:月亮灣、臥龍灣、神仙灣和鴨澤湖,遊客可以在任意一個景點上下車。

喀納斯湖是喀納斯景區的核心景點,位於阿爾泰地區的布爾津境內的深山密林之中,與東邊的禾木村旱溪邊的白哈巴村(屬於哈巴河縣)構成了整個喀納斯景區的主體。當地的旅遊敘述是說,與其他兩村落的人文景觀相比,喀納斯湖以神秘的湖怪,變換顏色的湖水和炫目的自然風光而令人癡迷。

湖的四周混合了雲杉、冷衫、和西伯利亞落時松的原始森林,山坡被茂密的草叢覆蓋,不同種植物的群落層次分明,聽說秋季更是絕美,萬木爭輝形成金黃、殷紅、墨綠結合而成的彩繪森林。

山區天氣變化非常大,建議是中午前抵達目的地,才有可能見到陽光照耀之下迷人的喀納斯湖水,我們的區間巴士抵達核心地區的時間已經是下午2點多左右,沿路開始飄起小雨來,漸漸有山嵐環繞整個山區。

儘管外頭飄著細雨,不得不說,睡醒張開眼睛的瞬間,看見下游的喀納斯湖沿著山崖急速沖刷下來,那透綠的顏色真的令人驚艷,好似在某個武俠小說裡面,彷彿有人揮舞著劍在習武著,我趕緊拿起相機捕捉那美麗的一刻。

由於抵達時間依然飄著細雨,天氣不好的狀態之下,我們並沒有爬到最頂端俯瞰喀納斯湖,倒是勉強付了120元人民幣,遊船看喀納斯湖的湖色風光,最後再沿著喀納斯湖兩邊木棧道逆流而下,走到風景絕美的月亮灣,路途中有許願池,當天許的願望還真的有點小小靈驗。再搭車坐到下一個定點臥龍灣之後,便又搭了2小時的車下山。

晚上返回賈登峪住宿,儘管旅行社已經幫我們安排4星級的酒店,還是不能期待這裡的房間有多高級,就是非常一般的住宿,可能這裡地段長年潮濕,一打開房間裡有一股霉味(通風之後就好多了),在這偏遠的山區,不用求好,只要乾淨能夠睡就好。

有趣的是,酒店經理(大姐)曾經來過台灣,在我們吃飯(評價最高的一頓)的時候一直分享她在台灣玩的經驗,她來台灣日月潭,船開了咻~5分鐘就到對岸(呃… ),哪像這裡這麼大!她們好羨慕我們夏天可以穿洋裝或是漂亮的衣服,儘管現在是炎熱的夏天,喀納斯這裡的山區氣候,讓她每天都只能穿羽絨外套(棉襖)。當然,撇開灌輸共產思想這話題,大姐說話還滿幽默風趣的,我們歡迎她再來台灣玩。

直到這時候我才明白,原來之前載的陸客阿姨們,穿的「過於」花枝招展上飛機來台灣玩,真的不是沒原因的。儘管他們的經濟開發迅速,能負擔的消費水平已經高出我們很多,住在這麼艱困的環境,蔬菜還要從布爾津開幾小時才能運上山來,可想而知,難得出國就會想把自己打扮的漂漂亮亮的(但可能真的太過誇張)。

內地的人嗓門大和地域遼闊也有關,在山區說話好像真的要用吼的才可以,親自來這裡走一趟,才能了解原來很多讓我們如此不適應的文化如說話方式和行為,當地環境與文化佔有著重要的因素。

Let’s keep going on the second stopof the second day. As you already read the last post, we drove in the early morning all the way from Burqin County to Kanas for 3 hours, and just spontaneously dropped by the amazing Jaden Valley in Jiadengyu.

Every 10 minutes come a shuttle from the ticket center in Jaden Valley to the top of  Kanas Lake, the famous Moon Bay or Dragon Bay. You can stop at any sightseeing  stop as you wish and take another shuttle continuing your journey. But you cannot imagine how big this area is, this shuttle route from our start point to the destination takes another almost 3 hours. Watch out the tough of the roads in the mountains and prepared medicines with you if you are a carsickness!

I still remember when I suddenly opened my eyes after a long sleep and saw this view through the window. Oh my goodness! That’s so amazing to see such a beautiful water color flows so fast along the canyon through the needle-leaved forests. “Am I in the martial art novel or a gongfu movie acting in ancient China?” I wondered myself.

The weather changes a lot especially in the mountains. I recommend to be there before afternoon, maybe you would be so lucky to see the incredible reflected lights from the sunshine on the Kanas Lake.Autumnis the best season to enjoy the amazing beauty of the different colors of the needle-leaved forests. What a pity when we arrived in our destination, it started raining again so that we didn’t go to the top of a spot to see the whole above view.

Never the less, we bought a ticket for 120 RMB for boat sightseeing and we did still have a lot of fun in the boat listening to the audio about introducing the Kanas Lake. After the boat sightseeing, we decided to walk down on the wood paths through the forests along the Kanas River to experience the wonder of nature. Seeing the people doing photography with different poses is really interesting and made me laugh.

Finally, we arrived at the famous and legend Moon Bay of the amazing Kanas Lake which has the special curves shape with beautiful green mixed blue color inside. The clouds flowed above the river  make this view more stunning even it’s cloudy. People say, the color of the Kanas Lake changes easily according to not only the season but also the weather. In Mongol, Kanas means beautiful, mysterious and the lake of the canyon.

It took another 2 hours to take the shuttle from Dragon Bay to go back to Jaden Valley for at least a nice local dinner in the hotel. The accommodation is only “ok” for us because of the humid weather all the year even though it has 4 stars ranks in this area. The rooms in these days totally cannot compare with the fancy hotels we used to stay in other countries. No matter what, keep something in mind: Hey! we are now experiencing the simple life in the nature!

 

禾木村 Hemu Village

 

 

在美麗的喀納斯湖旁,有一個小巧的山村,名為禾木村(Hemu Village),素有「中國第一村的美景」之稱,進入到這裡,我才真的覺得好像進入武俠小說或是仙劍奇俠傳等,很多神仙或是劇中奇幻人士居住的桃花源。

When I rode the horse passing by the small bridge above the river, I was stunned by the vivid view with light blue color crossing the village without any words at that moment. The water from the Kanas Lake is so clear like a Blue Sapphire Stone. If you are the person who has a crush on Chinese Culture, you might know what I described. Am I in a acting art fiction or movie? Everything passed through my eyes seems unreal.

北疆看風景,南疆看歷史。

在賈登峪用完早餐之後,王師傅把我們載到前往「禾木風景區」的停車場,繼續搭乘1小時的接駁車前往目的地。老實說,自從習慣自助旅行之後,就很不喜歡這種一直在趕車,下車看風景的行程。但新疆真的很大,能夠有當地的導遊帶領,盡責地抓好時間,讓我們在這短短4天看到基本該看的景點,想一想,已經要偷笑惜福了,因為,很多人一輩子也不會特地大老遠來到北疆,看見喀納斯美麗的臉龐。

在美麗的喀納斯湖旁,有一個小巧的山村,名為禾木村(Hemu Village),素有「中國第一村的美景」之稱,進入到這裡,我才真的覺得好像進入武俠小說或是仙劍奇俠傳等,很多神仙或是劇中奇幻人士居住的桃花源。雖然我的遊記以歐洲國家的美景居多,但中國邊境(境內)那神美般的仙境以及當地文化的歷史特色,是很多地方比不上的,當前的夢幻美景,總是令人歎為觀止。

當我們搭接駁車抵達目的地之後,一棟棟的樸素的小木屋不規則地座落在道路的兩旁,多半已經改建成民宿,遠方的群山壯闊被山嵐環繞著,早晨的陽光照耀在禾木村的入口,我彷彿來到了另一個天堂。當地的馬伕已經迫不及待,上前拉著幾匹馬兒等著我們上山。基本上,一匹馬的費用是200人民幣,沒有包含在團費內。

這是我自己獨立騎一匹馬耶!沒有人在下面牽,前面只有我的馬伕- 哈薩克老大哥,這一切實在太酷了。準備上山前,經過禾木村的一處的小橋流水,淺藍色河水是從喀納斯湖流下來的,清澈動人,座落在山谷裡的原木堆疊而成的木屋,這裡儘管內地遊客絡繹不絕,卻顯得安靜樸實不喧鬧,居民們依舊維持著傳統的不被外界打擾的原始生活,圍欄飼養的牲畜隨意跑動,這裡,沒有其他民俗村有刻意迎合遊客的商業表演。

沿路經過白樺林等高山針葉林,克服了難行走的岩石山路之後,映入眼簾的是位在阿爾泰山上,一片浩瀚無垠的大草原,我在莫內的印象派畫作內吧?只是場景在新疆,眼前的一切彷彿《環珠格格》內的騎馬場景,「你是風兒我是沙」,唯美的一點也不真實。

 

 

但要仔細注意,如果上了山之後,他們還有帶你快馬加鞭前進至大草原,那就要再加50人民幣,我一開始不知道,帶領我的馬伕只是問我要不要繼續往前,我傻傻地說好!倒也是不心疼這筆錢,因為那樣的體驗還滿很值得,只是下山之後才知道原來這是要額外收費的,覺得有一點惋惜,早知道就在大草原待久一點就好了!

我跟哈薩克大哥說:「大哥,可以幫我拍照嗎?」

他回答:「好!妳拍!」

我又問:「大哥,可以幫我拍照嗎?」

他回答:「好!妳拍!」

這樣對話來回3-4次,我100%確定他老人家一定沒聽懂,以為我要拍他還是拍風景,他還是坐在馬背上不動,我最後再跟他比手畫腳一下,他終於才懂下了馬,但只隨意拍了一張我們就趕緊離開。

往下眺望禾木村全景,聽說要秋天或是黃昏更美,木房子都變成民宿,下山回到村落,人們正在建造房子。剛好經過一戶人家,有一幕實在有夠好笑,一群公雞母雞圍在機車下,以為是狗狗呢。

我們的行程沒有安排住在禾木村一晚,基本上喀納斯都是排4天3夜的行程,我們多了新疆魔鬼城,卻少了在禾木村與當地人的互動。如果你有更多的時間,建議是:

1) 在禾木村住上一晚,看其他同事的照片,隔日清晨炊煙裊裊,日出時更多了神秘的色彩。

2)秋季前來,這裡的景色光看別人隨手拍的照片都是堪稱絕美,只是旅遊旺季房間可能銷售一空,行程需要提早規劃。

3)花個5塊人民幣和溫馴的小羊羔(大陸用語)拍照,但我這幾天一直以為他叫小羊哥 XD。

 

Well, this is the first stop of the third day of our Kanas Trip.

Hey Dears, Do you know how HARD it is to write this post? I mean, the whole Kanas Trip. There are only a little bit trip tips on-line in Chinese  and too less English informations to find some correct translations.

Even for the Asian, Kanas is a place where is so far away on the border of China and not easy to visit. People would rather visit big cities in China like Beijing, Shanghai…etc. Otherwise, they would spend their short holidays in Taipei, Tokyo, Seoul, Bangkok …to go shopping or do something else. For most young people, they are fascinated with some European countries and would plan a long trip there.

But I would like to introduce and show you more about the beauty of this secrect place. I do cherish this on-duty flight opportunity to be here because for most of the people, maybe we would never come back here again, unless for some reasons in the future.

After breakfast, our tour guide drove the car from our hotel in Jiadenyu to the parking lot in front of the ticket center of the Hemu Village. From there we have to change another shuttle for 1 hour up to the core of this area. At first, I didn’t know why it is so important to visit. When you were there, you would know it.

Numerous wood constructed houses are located in this area, most of them are B&B right now. Behind the background is the spectacles view with clouds surrounded the mountains. It’s easy to see the Kazakhstan people remaining the original simple life as ancient time without too much business  behaviors or activities. We didn’t have time to stay in the village to get close to the people. Time is money! We had another important thing to do.

What you cannot miss in Hemu Village is to rent a horse riding to the top of the Altai Mountains to see the endless and gorgeous view between the grass and the sky. The horse riding route is a little bit tough and includes an exciting part of climbing some rocks. I rode a horse by myself and there is only a elderly housekeeper who rode a horse as well in the front to lead me. If you are the person who can ride by yourself, that would be perfect! You don’t have to follow the group step by step and just move forward as fast you wish.

When I rode the horse passing by the small bridge above the river, I was stunned by the vivid view with light blue color crossing the village without any words at that moment. The water from the Kanas Lake is so clear like a Blue Sapphire Stone. If you are the person who has a crush on Chinese Culture, you might know what I described. Am I in a acting art fiction or movie? Everything passed through my eyes seems unreal.

If you know the famous TV series “The Return of The Pearl Princess”, you will definitely know what is the feel of Freedom to ride the horse on the grass with many lovely white flowers all around.  The impression of the landscape is too beautiful to remove in your mind and touched your heart so deeply. Breath the fresh air from the Heaven and embrace the beauty of the nature. Suddenly, you would realize something you never realized in your life.  Just do whatever you want. Think different and dream big. That’s you, the truth of you.

Tips for visiting Hemu Village:

  1. Spend a night to experience a original simple life of the people.
  2. Get up early to see the sunrise on the grass.
  3. Best season is Autumn. Don’t forget to book the tour in advance because it is popular tourism season.
  4. Riding a hourse to the top of the mountains, amount 200 RMB.
  5. Standing on the top to see the whole view of the wood houses village.
  6. Pay 5 RMB to hold the little sheep in arms.

Let’s keep going to the last stop of this Kanas Trip: The Colorful Landscape of Xinjiang’s Rainbow Beach!

 

五彩灘 Rainbow Beach

 

 

從喀納斯的賈登峪一路回到布爾津的路上,我們來到了喀納斯之旅最後的一站:五彩灘(Rainbow Beach)。這是我這幾天一直很期待的景點,既然無法親自前往敦煌路上參觀五彩城,那就絕對不能錯過五彩灘!

We went to the Rainbow Beach. Cross the river is the border between Russia and China! This Trip was awesome even though the route was so tough driving all the way. I have to say, every sightseeing spot was worth to see.

我們在禾木村用完簡單的午餐之後,便乘車返回布爾津,途中要求王師傅帶我們到五彩灘看夕陽,一開始也不知道原來這裡的夕陽是喀納斯著名的,只是下車的時間剛好約莫下午5點,讓我們捕捉這最美麗的絢麗景緻。門票以及超公里車費已含,參觀時間約1小時。

五彩灘由不同岩層的色調形成的特殊地形結構,隔了一條河對岸就是俄羅斯的國土,遠方的夕陽美的無話可說,這裡是新疆最美的風蝕地貌,當地旅遊敘述說,這裡有著火(日出日落) 土(雅丹地貌) 金(巨型風車) 水(碧藍河流) 木(河谷秋林)之美。

五彩灘是典型的雅丹地貌,位在布爾津的南方,它絢麗的色彩和詭異怪誕的巨大形體在每日的早、中、晚,都有不同的色彩呈現,這些凹凸不平,呈現不規則狀的朱紅與深紫等色系交錯的河灘,在遠方夕陽的橙橘色光線照耀之下更顯得柔和。眼前這一切也好不真實,是一個偌大的大自然奧秘的呈現,更顯得自己好微弱渺小。

好奇地走進這縱錯的溝壑的同時,夕陽灑落的光芒讓這些岩石更顯得斑斕絢麗,彷彿又不小心踏進入了古代的時光機,迷離而虛幻。可惜待的時間不夠長久,我們一同看著夕陽緩緩地西下,直到天色微暗,心滿意足地從五彩灘離開,繼續趕路回到布爾津的住宿。

 

After finishing the simple lunch in Hemu Village, we drove all the way back to Burqin County where we already spent our first night and our last night of this trip would be there as well.

We passed through the Jaden Valley again on the highway but didn’t stop this time because there was another special sightseeing spot waiting for us! I would rather be sleepy in the car than closed my eyes seeing the spectacles views between the mountains and then keep all of them in my mind.

Here we are! We walked into the entry of the Rainbow Beach which is located in the south of Burqin County. Cross the Irtysh River is the border between Russia and China! Actually, it is not a real beach as we normally think about. they are all colorful rocks named Yardang which streamlined protuberance carved from bed rocks or any consolidated material by the dual action of wind abrasion by dust and sand.

The colors of these rocks changes amazingly every morning, noon and afternoon. People said they would turn red in the morning. Could you imagine how amazing it is to see such a huge orange mixed purple colors “Beach” through my eyes? The Sunset here is famous in Kanas and we were so lucky just arrived at the Rainbow Beach at the best and perfect moment. The golden light shining from the other side of the sky and illuminated the Rainbow Beach to make them looked so softly.

I still felt unreal while standing on the rocks and wondered myself this scene should be in the fantastic fiction. Right? Staying here about one hour, the sun was gone. We did enjoy under the bath of the sunshine but unfortunately we have to leave before the closing time.

 

回到烏魯木齊 Back to Urümchi

 

最後一天沒有行程,早餐之後,王師傅從布爾津沿著217國道行駛一路奔馳,車程約11小時,單程距離700公里,晚上才回到烏魯木齊(烏市)。儘管這4天的喀納斯之旅一路舟車勞頓,有大家一起出遊,每天實在太有趣,大陸尋奇我們下次見!

This Trip was awesome even though the route was so tough driving all the way. I have to say, every sightseeing spot was worth to see. Thanks for everything blessed in my life, even though I always say I would rather go traveling with someone important in my life. Sometimes, we cannot control the life schedule. Enjoy the moment and I did have a lot of fun with these cute friends in this Kanas Trip!

See you next time, the Wonders of  China!

 

左: 妹妹還記得我們,實在太有緣份,這純真的笑容實在令人難忘,好喜歡。

右: 回到烏魯木齊,市場內超可愛的小孩,媽媽很樂意要他看鏡頭。

– The End –
