Only 3 tombs open, one contains 2 mummies and the other 2 paintings. Good to see them insitu but more to see in the Urumqi museum. Interesting but not worth going out of your way for. I must add though the new toilets here are the best in the whole of Xinjiang!

Not much there but you can have a nice conversation with the older man responsible for the place.
Most of what was in the tombs is now in the Museum.

There is nothing to see in this place, the mummies are all gone to the meseum either in beijing or urumqi. You will pay to go down a hole in the ground

Just 3 tombs to go into. Not a lot really except for lots of steps and a body in the third one. My husband liked it, I didn't.

Firstly the entrance of the site has a classic pagoda style gate - stylistically incongruous to the site. Secondly, paying another 40Y to see a couple of dusty tombs...just doesn't cut it. Disappointing.
