Oytagh Glacier is a surprisingly little known
corner of China that features a glacier and forest more representative of Kyrgyzstan than the barer mountain scenery typical of Southern Xinjiang.
The hotel and yurt accommodation here is basic, but Oytagh boasts some of the best hiking in Xinjiang for outdoor-lovers.
Oytagh Mountain is a part of the famous Kunlun Mountain Range. If you make this trip; you’ll see the Forest, Rock and Ice mountains in the same place; you’ll enjoy the colorful and famous high peaks along the Karakorum Highway. You’ll have a chance to visit a family of KYRGYZ people and study a different culture. You can feel the cool and fresh mountain air.
This is a great opportunity for you to stay in a Kyrgyz yurt and feel a part the local Kyrgyz people’s community. It is also a fantastic place to trek around the Forest or Ice Mountains – this could be the best part of your trip!
