When you go on from Kucha to Aksu on the way to Kashgar, the you should take the route via Kizil. Kizil is an interesting place an dthe road goes through some spectacular river valleys in the desert. It is also a route, where you are very sure to see some noamds with their camels. There is also a direct highway from Kucha to Aksu, but that is not very interesting.

The "unique quality" of Kucha Hotel is the breakfast. Chinese breakfast is ok. And I know, that I should not expect more. But they offer a "Western Breakfast" at Kucha Hotel. This breakfast is just a joke: toast is frozen, coffee is a light brew with almost no coffee, butter is an oily fluid, fried eggs maybe have seen the pan from far.
When I talked about this to my collegues at China Tours Hamburg and at China Tours Guilin they all told me, that the breakfast at Kucha Hotel is known and no complains helped in the last few years.
So bring your own coffee, if you need it! And try the Chinese Breakfast with ricesoup, fried vegetables and tea.

The road to Kizil passes some spectacular valleys and desert mountains. It is quite adventurous. Parts of the road are under construction (2007). Even if you do not see the big Taklamakan Sanddunes, this part gives you an impression of sandy and dusty desert, loneliness and high mountains. Sandstorms can occur.
