Located in the Ili River Valley in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Zhaosu County is known as the "land of heavenly horses". Thanks to its long horse-raising history, the place has accumulated a strong foundation of horse breeding and formed a rich equine culture.
Amid the peak season, the wonderful performance of "Heavenly horses bathing the river" is held twice a day by the Tex River. During the performance, the herdsmen raise their whips and order dozens of horses to run in the river and step on the waves. The spectacular scene wins bursts of exclamation from tourists.
