Nalati Prairie Ili Xinjiang
The Nalati Prairie offers breathtaking scenery at the border of Xinjiang. This vast expanse prairie in the spring offers an ocean of freshness away from the desert. The nomads also settle here and their traditional yurts blend perfectly into the landscape of the Mongolian steppes.

At the borders of Russia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia, Nalati grassland is one of the highest prairies in China and also one of the four largest grasslands in the world. extending over 2000 kilometers long, it offers breathtaking scenery. This pastoral valley is usually inhabited by nomadic Kazakhs half of the year. In this floral carpet, graze sheep and cattle nomads while some are busy training falcons to be used later for hunting. Their camps still arranged as traditional yurts blends perfectly into the lush landscape where rivers meander Nalati amid temporary dwellings. In winter, the prairie is buried under snow, but in the spring, it is viewed as an enchanting landscape. The nomads then offer excursions on horseback in the middle of its immense steppes.
