From Kashgar to Tashkurgan, visitors will be amazed at the charming scenery of the Karakuli Lake and the Subashi Grassland. 'Karakuli' means 'Black Sea'. The lake is 30 meters (over 98 feet) and covers an area of 10 square kilometers (2,471 acres), at an altitude of 3,600 meters (11,811 feet). The lakeside Subashi Grassland has luxuriant grass where sheep and cattle enjoy their meals.

The sky is mirrored in the still water of the lake, with the most intense shade of blue.
