Freshwater Lake

Located on the road between Turpan and Korla, Bosten Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Xinjiang and inland China. It actually consists of a large lake of 988 km² and a smaller one of 240 km². Its average depth is 10 meters, ideal for fishing and a range of water activities. Thus well-loved by travelers.

Various Water Activities

Part of the lake was arranged to receive guests. A range of 2 kilometers along the lake looks like a beach with the only difference that the water is not salty! With snowy peaks in the background, it is even more beautiful. Located in a natural park, this place is even livelier with birds and butterflies that twirl above guests. Many activities are offered in addition to sunbathing and swimming, surfing, diving and pedal boat!
