All about Urumqi

The most remote major city from the sea in the world, Urumqi exists among environmental extremes: snow covered peaks and glacial lakes, lush grasslands where nomadic peoples graze their herds and dry, barren deserts where the remains of great cities of ancient times sit empty. Far west Xinjiang’s capital city introduces travelers to cultures and cuisines that grew along the trade routes of the ancient Silk Road.
