4 hour car ride to come.
1 hour at the lake which includes picnic lunch and way too many pictures of us doing stupid things and we are back on the road (in the car not on that camel) for the 4 hours drive back at 60 km/hour and going through the 3 passport checkpoints.
But this was so worth it. Just the drive along the road. Taking all in on where we were actually on the map plus this lake is just about nature. The Heavenly Lake near Urumqi felt more like a tourist destination (the way Chinese like to arrange tourist destination)
