Kanas Lake

When planning your tour to Xinjiang, China, Kanas Lake is definitely an area cannot be missed. Situated in northern Burqin County, Altay region, it is a famous freshwater lake in the Altai Mountains. Encompassing an area of ??45.73 square kilometers, with an average depth of 120 meters, its deepest reaches can be 188.5 meters and its water storage capacity is about 5.38 billion cubic meters. The whole lake is in the shape of a crescent, presumed to be formed by the ancient glacial valley water movement.

Kanas Lake is such well-known not only for its wonderful natural scenery but also of a lake monster legend, it is said that a "Big Red Fish" would come and go from time to time, reaching 10 meters in length, but till now, it hasn't been supported by actual observation. The lake, surrounded by lush forests, the mainly residents is of Tuva nationality, and it is listed as one of the National 5A class tourist attractions in China. Further information can be found on Onlinechinatours.
Look at the mist, does it indicate the appearance of the Kanas Lake monster, the Big Red Fish?

Unimaginable complicated orgnization of colours

Autumn scene?

Another mist

Birches? Maybe

It seems that the sky and the lake are linked together

What are the two horses talking about? Go swimming in the lake?

A real view or a Chinese painting, so quiet

How free they are

So clever to bring a tent and spend a night beside the lake, maybe you are lucky enough to witness the Big Red Fish by your own eyes.

Stone? distinctive

A group of camels, where are they heading for?

Colourful pool
