Urumqi to Fuyun
Activities: drive drive through Kurban Tongut desert, Visit Wucaicheng on the way. Arrive in Koktokay town in the late afternoon and stay overnight
After breakfast, you’ll meet your tour guide and driver in your hotel lobby to begin driving to Fuyun County through Kurbantongut desert and en-route, to enjoy the vast second largest desert steppes in China.
After 3 hours of driving we’ll stop at Wucaicheng also known as Wucaiwan, the multi-colored bay. The bay presents the visitor with an artist’s composed colors of reds, yellows, greens, grays, blacks and whites. The multi-colored Bay was one of the main locations for the Oscar Winning Best Foreign language film “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”.
Enjoy the Bay about an hour then continue driving through “Karamay Wild Animals Protection Area.” On a good day, hopefully you’ll see some of the many wild horses, camels or deers during our crossing. We can stop to take photos at any time you want.
