Squeezing in one more post before we leave the laptop behind and head off to hike Tiger Leaping Gorge. Fingers crossed that we’ll have good weather!
Kashgar’s weekly livestock market is simply tremendous; it was definitely worth the well-before-the-crack-of-dawn departure from Tashkurgan in order to make it back in time for the main action.
More about Kashgar to come after we’ve visited the Gorge, but in the mean time here are some photo impressions from the market.
The outdoor market takes place every Sunday, where farmers and other locals gather from around the area to buy and sell thousands of animals.
