So they entire Turpan is full of grapevines and it does seem like this is such a way of life. The season is in august so we were too hot for the grapes. However the grapevines are still nice and add a good atmosphere to the place.

I must admit I just had a fabulous visit to Grape Valley, but let me tell you my story and you can see why I suggest you don't go in winter. The buses seem to never come in Turpan, so I decided to take a taxi instead. I asked him to drop me off at the entrance instead of a... More

Grape valley is well known for their raisins and grapes. Unfortunately when we were there, most of the grapes are already harvested, only a few bunches remained on the vine. Would be quite a view to be walking amidst the grapevine full of ripe grapes. (So make sure you research on the right season to make your trip, otherwise you’ll... More

The agriculture made possible by the Karez system bringing water to the valley put the Turpan depression- China's Death Valley- on the ancient Silk Road maps and to this day produces some of the very best grapes, melons, apples, and apricots in the world. From the summer system to the earthen greenhouses used for winter agriculture, it is an amazing... More

We went there in the afternoon and it was the hottest day of the month. Above 40 degrees centigrade. We avoided all the Chinese tourists. Our host, Mr Omar brought us to his vineyard and home. He offered us fresh grapes and raisins.

It's not comparable to any grape areas in other countries - it is a Muslim area and wine is not their passion. But we spend some beautiful hours in the grape valley, tasting gape and - juices and having some nice walks outside of the valley. From the top, it is ver remarkable to grow fruits in such a density... More

What a lovely relief from the hot summer temperatures of the Turpan Depression. Covering over 220 hectares, more than 300 tons of raisins are produced here each year. As well as grapes there are peach, apricot, apple and pomegranate trees. Fed by melt snow from the nearby Tian Shan mountains it is proof that all the desert needs is water.

We went there during the grape festival, which supposedly is the most interesting time of the year, It is basically catered for average Chinese tourists and the money you pay is wasted on artificial plastic statues and people trying to see you all kinds of boring things, Do not go !!!

An opportunity to visit a family that grew grapes and processed into sun dried raisins. At the end of the visit, there were raisins for sale. The price was higher than in the market. However, the money goes directly to the farmer. A way to improve the living standard of the Uighur family.

All in all a pretty touristy set up with not too much of interest. I cannot stress strongly enough to avoid tasting the wine at all costs unless you enjoy the taste of bleach mixed with cheap vodka
