What else is there
Kashgar, the mythical city of the Silk Road. In its city you can spend hours enjoying the atmosphere: people of different ethnicities, nomads who come to trade, puppeteers with their colorful wagons ... and right there, the Id Kah Mosque, the largest Islamic center in the country that you can visit outside the prayer times. Nearby, in the foothills of Karakorum, getting to Pakistan, you will find the beautiful lake Karacul, with its small yurt camp (typical tents of Central Asia) eager to welcome the few visitors who arrive there.

The Railway which reaches Akto County is the "Kashgar-Hotan".
