“If you do not come to Yili, you will never know the beauty of Xinjiang.” The beauty of Yili is shocking, and Yili grassland is extremely brilliant in spring! Pure and blue lake quietly reflects the white snow mountains, nearly 30,000 livestock graze here, which looks like numerous white clouds swimming in the grassland and roaring in wildness. Yili was named by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as one of “the world’s great ten mountain grasslands”.
