Nanshan mountain also called Nanshan pasture, it is a high mountain grassland located about 70 km south of Urumqi. People like to go there in hot summers, because the mountains with many small streams, grass, trees and blue sky give comfort and joy. The nomadic Kazakh people use to live this mountain area for generations. There you can see great mountain scenery and try to horse ride on the grassland, enjoy the exotic meals at their yurts with reasonable expenses. The trip to the Southern pasture makes a very good one day tour to the nature from Urumqi.
