This small Uyghur community lives in a valley nestled in a mountain range about 70km out of Turfan in Xinjiang, China. It represents a way of life that can be traced back to the time of when Buddhism first came to China. Grottoes with ancient Buddhist art are located nearby. Despite its mountainous terrain, the village and surrounds are located on the Turfan Depression, the second lowest point on the planet.
