Silk Road Castle Square

An outstanding landscape.

Tashkorgan, August 21st 2012

As mentioned in previous post, a breathtaking landscape spread wide beneath the stone fortress. That's "Silk Road Castle Square". I had thought that Silk Road Castle Square was elsewhere. But my tour guide said it was just here. I'll just have to trust him.

At one side the year-round-snow-capped mountains of Pamir guarded the grassland.

At the other side tall and fat mountain dunes watched...

... watched horses feast, on...

... the pure green grassland, which...

... also served as playground for all generation.

Waterwheel working hard on Tashkurgan River to produce the best refreshment, the best power.
