"You will not know the size of China until you reach Xinjiang, and will not know the beauty of Xinjiang until reaching Yili". Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture is located in the northwest of Xinjiang, bordering Kazakhstan. The capital of the prefecture is Yining City, with a border line of more than 2000 kilometers.

Historically, Yili was the hub of the North Road of the ancient Silk Road. Today, it is the gateway to the West. It is known as the "Jiangnan beyond the Great Wall" and the "hometown of melons and fruits". The rain here is relatively abundant and the weather is warm. It is called "Hanhai wet island". The vegetation coverage rate of grassland and forest is 67.7%.
