- Tiemen Pass: As one of 26 famous passes in China, Tiemen Pass was a natural barrier between South and North of Xinjiang. It was also an important strategic passage of Silk Road and got its name for it as solid and firm as an iron gate. On the both sides are the steep and bold cliffs while the torrential Kongque River (Peacock River) runs roughly downwards. Due to its advantaged position, it is hard to aggress and capture it.

En route, you may come across some vendors selling fruits or Nang (Chinese bread) and we suggest you buy some to take with. To keep chewing something or eating some fruits can make you easy and feel better to some extent.)
- Karakuri Lake: The lake sits at an elevation of 3,600 meters above the sea level and is surrounded by a series of mountains. The Mount Muztagata, "the Father of Iceberg", on the east side of the lake reflecting its white capped peaks on the blue lakefront, compose a splendid landscape painting.

- Taklamakan Desert: As the second largest desert in the world, Taklamakan covers an area of 33, 700 square kilometers (over 13 square miles).
