(Tianshannet) Updated: 2012-July-2 18:17:20

Turpan, a county-level city in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, is famous for its Flaming Mountain and sweet grapes. With a temperature reaching up to 47.8℃, the Flaming Mountain is China's hottest spot and known for the plot of "Journey to the West." Enjoying the beautiful vineyards and clusters of grapes, visitors can also get some winemaking experience in the Grape Valley. A wind power generation system was constructed in the area to put to use the regio's abundant wind resources. [Mi Xingang/China.org.cn]
