Day 7 Bozikerige-Heiying Mountain Village-Kuche

Today's trip is to slowly descend in the river valley to the Heiying Mountain and the mouth of the valle. During which we need to wade in the same river channel repeatedly. Because the river channel changes from time to time, but basically about 40 times. The river is always cold and turbulent. It is recommended to bring waterproof socks and upstream shoes. Members with less strength can plan ahead to ride across the river (safely and extra cost at own expense). After reaching Heiying Mountain Village (1940m), we will drive to the Kuche City. After taking a shower, we will arrange a celebration dinner. Kuche has very convenient access (bus, flight, train) to Urumuqi or other destinations. Please arrange your transport back for next day.
