Kanas - The Town Of Meanders

Continuation from Hemu to Kanas trek - Day 2.

The town of Kanas is known for the vivid meanders, it's a delight to every photographer.  We did the local sight seeing in Kanas, visited Wulong bend and Crescent bend - fancy names for the Kanas river meanders that makes the scenery around quite attractive.  Beautiful blues and greens of the meanders among dense yellows and reds of the mountains in the fall, make Kanas very picturesque.   We even visited the Kanas lake, but the cold winds made it unbearable and it was too dull to get a good photograph.  Kanas brought our trekking to halt, for we hired a couple of Jeep Cherokees that drove us to Baihaba, a town at which China stops and Kazakhstan starts...stay tuned for the same.
