Lake Karakul and Muztagh Ata

Karakul Lake is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations for visitors to the Kashgar region. You can plan for a day trip or an extended stay. If you plan for extended stay you can experience living in a yurt while you explore the surrounding hills. This small lake sits more than 3.5 km above sea level, with Muztagh Ata (7,546m/24,757ft) as a part of the Tibetan Himalayas, producing an imposing backdrop.
