One Day Urumqi Tour with Excursion to Southern Pasture
Xinjiang is a noble destination for travelers from home and abroad, enchanting people to pack bags with its name alone. As the economic and cultural center of Xinjiang, Urumqi is a must-visit place for any visitor to Xinjiang along Silk Road. At the north slope of Tianshan Mountain, there is the picturesque Southern Pasture worth a visit during your travel to Urumqi. If you have more free time in Urumqi, this one day tour is highly recommended to bring you a relaxing and leisure excursion. Just imagine the green grassland, blue sky, lively horses…
Upon your arrival at Urumqi airport/train station, the English speaking tour guide and driver will pick you up from the exit gate by holding a welcome board with your name.
Driving around 1.5 hours, you will arrive at the amazing Southern Pasture. It is actually a part of Nanshan Scenic Area which consists of snow mountains, valleys, grassland, woods, peculiar rocks and local ethnic zone. Nestled on the north slope of Tianshan Mountain, it’s a pearl shining in south suburb of Urumqi, attracting visitors especially in springs and summers when flocks and herds scattered here and there in blossom. Wander leisurely on the grassland to catch a short break from your busy city life and work.
If you want to experience riding horses in this amazing filed or any other optional activities there, you can pay in cash on your own. Of course the tour guide will help you!
Finishing the relaxing sightseeing, you will be dropped off at Urumqi airport/train station/downtown hotel.
