In between early sunrise and sunset shots in Yunnan, the local guide brought us through the villages, allowing us to glimpse the way of life. There were many interesting sights, especially children playing on dirt road while their parents toiled in the field.
The Northern Xinjiang is very much different from the south, at least 10-15 degree celsius. The landscape changed drastically as we went further north and up the mountains. The 2 well known scenic places are Hemu Village and Kanas Lake. Unfortunately, the bad weather obscured wonderful views and almost got us trapped in the mountain.
