Tianshan Grand Canyon, also known as Keziliya Grand Canyon, is located 48 kilometers away from Urumqi city center in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Stretching over 5.5 kilometers, the canyon stands 1,600 meters above sea level, with an average altitude of 2,000 meters. After hundreds of years of wind and rain erosion, the colored rocks make the canyon a masterpiece of nature. With mysterious mist, sounds, lights and shadows frequently seen in the canyon, tourists enjoy themselves during the adventure. #AmazingXinjiangCGTN YouTube Channel

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
