On the banks of Paradise Lake on the Wusun Ancient Road, a hiking resort in Xinjiang, there are tourists who have left rubbish all over the place after camping, and even deflated inflatable rowboats and gas tanks. Many netizens sighed that the scenery was terrible.
The Wusun Ancient Road passes through the Tianshan Mountains. The hiking route starts from Turks County, Ili, Xinjiang in the north, and reaches Baicheng County, Aksu Prefecture, Xinjiang in the south. Along the way, you can see alpine meadows, canyons, snow-capped mountains, rivers, etc., and the beauty of Paradise Lake is even more impressive.
From June to September every year, many ALICE pals cross this ancient road on foot. Recently, some netizens posted on the Internet that some tourists left garbage everywhere after camping on the shore of Paradise Lake.
In addition to food packaging bags and beverage bottles, there were even deflated inflatable boats and gas tanks. However, some netizens also posted that the garbage has since been cleaned up and transported away.
The reporter noticed that many netizens did post pictures and videos on outdoor forums and other social platforms to expose the garbage left by tourists on the shore of Paradise Lake.
A video shows that some workers are putting garbage into bags and putting them into a helicopter parked next to them, ready to transport the garbage away.
On July 23, a netizen who claimed to be the team leader posted that he had just taken tourists out of the Wusun Ancient Road. When he arrived, the piles of rubbish in Paradise Lake had been cleaned up, but there was still a lot of rubbish scattered in Paradise Lake.
The reporter contacted the deputy director of the Turks County Branch of the Ecological Environment Bureau of Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture on the 23rd. He said that he knew about the matter. The garbage in Paradise Lake is currently being handled by the Cultural and Tourism Bureau.
According to the deputy director of the Turks County Cultural and Tourism Bureau who is in charge of handling the matter, Paradise Lake is an undeveloped scenic spot, but at present, helicopters are sending tourists there every day, and the garbage has been transported out by helicopters.
In addition, they will also remind the tour leader and herdsmen who lead the team into the mountain not to let tourists throw rubbish.
