Autumn tour to the north and south borders | Kashgar Ancient City a

The Kashgar Ancient City, originally named Shule, is located in the center of Kashgar city, with a history of more than 2100 years, and is now a national 5A tourist attraction. The Kashgar Ancient City is a living fossil and the soul of Kashgar. As the saying goes: If you haven't been to Kashgar, you haven't been to Xinjiang, and if you don't come to the Kashgar Ancient City, you can't say you've been to Kashgar. Coming here is more about finding life than tourism. Kashgar, full name "Kashi", in Uyghur means "a place where precious stones are concentrated". Kashgar has been a city and market for 2100 years. It has a long history and unique style, and is known as "the last Western Region, a living fossil". The Kashgar Ancient City is the only complete and vibrant ancient city in Xinjiang. After thousands of years of history, it still plays its role in the past and continues to be the place where people continue their ancestors. At present, it is not only a living specimen of history, but also the ultimate embodiment of Xinjiang's historical culture and art. The residential buildings on the high platform of the Kashgar Ancient City are unique in the world, not only with the vicissitudes of history and a heavy feeling, but also inheriting the strategic significance of the ancient Shule city. Kashgar, a major town in southern Xinjiang, is a place where Uyghur customs are gathered, and can be called a microcosm of Xinjiang. It is a major commercial town on the "Ancient Silk Road", gathering the essence of Eastern and Western cultures, and writing a brilliant history. 2100 years of wind and frost, 2100 years of cultural accumulation, make this old city a unique landscape of Kashgar, known as "not to Kashgar is not to Xinjiang, not to the ancient city is not to Kashgar". Kashgar is known as the "Pearl of the Silk Road", the Silk Road, this major traffic artery across the Eurasian continent, after entering the Tarim Basin, it is divided into two roads, north and south, bypassing the Taklamakan Desert, and then converging in Kashgar, then crossing the Pamir Plateau, leading to India, Iran, West Asia, Europe and other places. On this historical ribbon of the Silk Road, Kashgar is like a shining pearl, shining brightly. Kashgar is adjacent to the "Roof of the World" Pamir Plateau to the west, and close to the vast Taklamakan Desert to the east. This area is the place where the Uyghur people have lived for generations, the ethnic customs are fascinating, the beautiful natural scenery, the rich historical sites, enough to make the guests who come from afar linger. Walking in the streets and alleys of the ancient city, every brick and tile is full of stories.
