In this third part of a fascinating photo-filled travelogue, Ali Karim takes our readers to historic sites in Kashgar including China’s biggest mosque, the mausoleum of a banished Uyghur, the Old Town with its narrow winding streets and old buildings, and the town’s Grand Bazaar. He also mentions about a Kashgar family’s warm hospitality, and visits a tea house, restaurants and some of the city’s metalwork and musical industries. Finally, readers are treated to photos of snow-capped mountains on the Karakoram Highway, as Ali and Dilshad head up to the town of Tashkurgan for the last leg of their stay in China.
