Red Hill

A legend says that in the ancient times, a red dragon that escaped from the Heavenly Lake was caught by the Heavenly Empress who split it in half. Each part formed a hill. The western hill is Yamalike Hill and the eastern one is Red Hill.
After many years of development, the Red Hill has been developed into the beautiful Red Hill Park now. On the peak of Red Hill, you will have the whole city of Urumqi before your eyes. The Red Hill is really mysterious and sacred. Local people regard it as a holy place and worship it regularly.
