Shipton’s Arch Trekking

This is a one day trek done in steeply walled canyons and over rocky river bed terrain. The arch was first discovered by Eric Shipton, then the British consul in Kashgar, and was officially measured by a National Geographic-sponsored team in 2000. The arch is 500 meters high and 100 meters wide, making it the tallest natural arch in the world. Admission Fee ¥30 RMB
