Trekking Kanas – Detailed Plan

This is the detailed plan following up my previous draft plan to Kanas, Xinjiang.

Day 0: From Shanghai to Urumqi by air. Staying at Urumqi.

Day 1: From Urumqi to Burqin by mountain car. Arrive at night after 6-8 hours via G216.

Day 2: Drive from Burqin into the mountain and begin trekking. Stay at the interaction of the two rivers.

Day 3: Continue to march to Hemu and stay in the village that night.

Day 4: From Hemu to Heihu (Black lake) and seattle down near the lake.

Day 5: Last walking day and reach Kanas Lake at night.

Day 6: Start from Kanas and return to Burqin.

Day 7: Come back to Urumqi via the west route and pass the Ghost City.

Here is the route map I draw before again:

Update: July 23, 2003

I am sorry that my trip to Xinjiang was canceled.

    Hi Jian Shuo,

    I am an English teacher currently working in Nanyan, Henan.

    I intend to do your Kanas Lake trip in July. I suppose you need a tent to camp by Black Lake. Is there a shop in Shanghai where you can buy camping equipment and hiking boots?

    Regards,

    Marek

    Ni Hao,

    We are planning to buy some trekking equipment to climb the himalayas.

    Where can i get it in Shanghai….

    the stuff that we are looking for are :

    1. Climbing Shoes (for snow use)

    2. Sleeping Bags to withstand minus 15 to minus 30 degrees

    3. Windsheeter jackets – This should withstand cold breeze and snow resistant

    4. Liquid Prismatic Compass

    5. Professional camping tents for snow use – withstand upto minus 30 degrees

    Some vendors/shops/manufactures information will be good. Also if anyone of you are selling please contact me at ranjanlaz@hotmail.com

    Right now I’m in Shanghai, CHina.
