Daily Overview
The Yarkand River flows through Shache County in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. For centuries, settlements have relied on the river to produce a fertile oasis at the southern rim of the Taklamakan Desert. Today, irrigated oasis farmland produces cotton, wheat, corn, walnuts and fruit while supporting herds of yak and sheep that graze in surrounding highlands.
