Aksu to Kashgar
July 1, 2017
Highway 314, a modern road, runs 286 mi (460 km) southwest from the city of Aksu to the city of Kashgar. It takes almost five hours by car.
It’s a colorful drive. The Tianshan mountains to the right. The Taklimakan desert to the left.
And what colors!
Have you ever seen orange mountains?
