Train - Turpan to Kashgar

We took the train between Turpan and Kashgar, a long journey in relatively modern stock which was air-conditioned. The line climbs into the foothills of the Tianshen Mountains (where there is some splendid scenery and exciting engineering) before dropping back down for a long night run along the northern edge of the desert. These pictures, which were taken through a rather grubby window, show some of the scenery.
