After breakfast, we drive to the old city of Gaochang and enjoy the mythical flame mountain along the way (no entry). The old city of Gaochang is the most well-preserved capital city in the 36 countries of the Western Region. Master Xuanzhuang has traveled here and formed a deep friendship with King Gaochang.
Afterwards, we move on to Tuyugou Mazha Village, an Uyghur village with a history of more than 1,700 years, known as "Oriental Wheat Plus". It was once a holy place for Buddhism and Islam. Enjoy a special homemade lunch here. After lunch, we return to Turfan and go to the Turfan Museum to learn about the Silk Road culture, where amongst others well-preserved corpses are visible. Visit Karez Underground Irrigation System, that displays irrigation skills of the ancients, accustomed to local conditions, and then go to the vineyard to experience grape picking.
