Tourism helps ancient Xinjiang village shake off poverty

At the foot of the Kunlun Mountains in Qiemo County of the Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture of Bayingolin, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, bright yellow flowers covering an area of about seven hectares have turned the ancient village of Kulamulak into a picturesque sea of gold. Tourists flocked to the area to take photos and enjoy the fresh scent of the flowers.
