What to Visit in Kuqa?
Kuqa is a national historical and cultural city; here, we mapped out some tourist attractions, including Tianshan Mysterious Grand Canyon ( Kuqa Grand Canyon ), Kizil Thousand Buddha Caves, and Kuqa Royal Palace, etc.
Kuqa Grand Canyon is called "Kiziliya" by the local people, which means "red mountain cliff" in the Uyghur language. It is a rare natural wonder in China that exhibits the typical yardang landform's typical character with its rocks covered by many ridges and grooves in either bright red or golden yellow.
Kuqa Royal Palace is the best travel destination to experience the profoundness of the Qiuci culture and learn the story of the royal family's glory and disgrace, as well as the history of social and economic development in Kuqa.
Kuqa Old Town is the maze-style towns featuring Islamic culture; it inhabited by residents who have lived here for generations, and they still keep traditional customs. Communicating with them is a very exciting and impressive experience.
