Yumin county of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region is known as "the garden at the Eurasian heart".

The flowers in Turjialiao steppe form a delightful contrast with the snowy mountains in the distance. They blossom from April and last for more than 120 days. Fragrant flowers, tall trees and green grass in Tarst Scenic Area make this site a good option for an outing.
