This lake is comforting with its clean water, air and nice surrounding. I visited the lake in July 2017. It was a bit hot and crowded but worth going there. One can spend the whole day. There are places you can have food and drink.

This makes for a very good day trip from Urumqi. It just is a bit of a drive so really is an all day kind of thing to enjoy. Picnic lunch to enjoy while gazing at the lake is what I suggest.
