Day 2: Tashkorgan - Kashgar (B, L)

After breakfast you will heading directly to visit the Stone Fort and visit Tajik village

Taskorgan County is located in the eastern part of the Pamir Plateau, at the borders with Afghanistan,Tajikistan and Pakistan.It was once an important hub on the old Silk Road.Because of its strategic importance, it was made the capital of Puli Country in Western Regions during the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220). After the Western Regions were unified and ruled by the Tang Government, administrative offices were established here. Later in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) the Government repaired its old buildings and enlarged its area.It was in the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that the Government built a new city to the south and the Stone City was abandoned.

Built on a mound of 20 meters high, all that remains of the Stone City today are some parts of the periphery of city, such as the gate, city wall whereas the buildings inside the city had all collapsed. However you can still enjoy the view of the ruined city, the surrounding snow-crowned mountains, grasslands, rivers and even the flavor of national traits of the Tajik people. Here you will not only enjoy the nature beauty of the area, but also to get to know better the life of the local Tajik people and their unique culture!

After lunch, drive back to Kashgar, and you can make stops along the way if you want to take photos. Return to your Kashgar city hotel around 7pm.
