Guanyu Pavilion the most beautiful view of Lake Kanas

Guanyu Pavilion Altay Xinjiang
For the most beautiful panorama of the Kanas Lake and surrounding mountains, mount the Guanyu Pavilion. After climbing about 1000 steps, you will be rewarded with an unforgettable panoramic view of the Kanas Lake. Mountains covered with conifers, snowcapped peaks, alpine meadows, lakes and rivers ... this natural landscape immortalized by beautiful photos.

1000 Steps Climb

In the heart of the natural park of Kanas, the Guanyu Pavilion is an ideal destination to have a panoramic view of Kanas Lake. This Viewing Fish Pavilion (if one likes to translate) rises above the rest of the valley and the beautiful Kanas Lake. Just take the minibus fleet to almost reach the top. There are only 1000 steps to reach the pavilion. But do not worry, the way is not difficult, you just need to prepare a stick for some parts with no railing.

Stunning Panorama

Once at the top, we can admire a 360° view of the entire Kanas Nature Reserve. You can see the Kanas Lake below lost amid the conifers and the pastures with their snowy peaks. On a clear day you can even see the mountain that lies on the border between China, Russia and Mongolia. It is probably here that are taken the most beautiful photos of Xinjiang.
