Flaming Mountain and Tianshan Mountain
from Gaochang Old Castle
(Turpan, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region)
Gaochang Nation is known as the place where Master of Tripitaka, “Master Sanzo”, stayed on his journey to India, as described in the story “Journey to the West.” The old prosperous city has since been ruined, but as I took photos I felt deeply inspired by the fact that Master Sanzo must have looked at the same mountain scene on his deadly journey.
