Xinjiang is not crowded in winter but full of leisure.  This winter in Kanas is lovely with snow-capped peaks, rime on the cliff’s edge, and boundless forest; every angle and small scene make people feel excited. Warm sunshine passes through the clouds, sweeping away the haze of the rainy season. This is Hemu Village, the nearest place to heaven. Welcome to Xinjiang, you will have a fantastic holiday in this fairy tale world!

What you can see in Kanas in Winter?
