  Chinain 1997 (15 Turfan)
A large garrison was maintained by the Han in the fortified town of Gaochang (known as Kiu-che by the Han and as Kara Khoja by the Tang) 45 kms east of Turfan.
In 840, the Turkic Uighur tribes centered on the Orkhon river (south of Baikal), who had adopted Manicheism and had become somewhat civilized as consequence of their century old alliance with the Tang, were overcome by the more primitive Kyrgyz tribes from the upper Ienissei.
Climbing out of the Turfan depression we reach the cooler Bogda Shan Plateau where the Chinese settled in their city Urumqi which was the end of the road until the railway was extended in 1990 to join with the Almaty-Novosibirsk Turksib line at Aktogai in Kazakstan.
