The amazing Karakol Lake along the Karakarom Highway. Yurt stays available in summer but no swimming as the local people believe that the lake is sacred with a big monster (kind of like Lochness) that sleeps within its waters. I am inclined to believe the same thing. #xinjiang#silkroad#farwestchina#karakaromhighway
