Kashgar Animal Bazaar is about 8 km from the city, it's the largest animal market in Xinjiang. Every Sunday morning, people come from different places of Kashgar area trade their animals here. Milk cows, sheep, camels, horses, yaks, goats, donkeys of different breeds and colors were tied and lined up, wait to be sold. Local people of different nationalities wearing their own costume trade in the traditional way. The sellers and buyers never bargain with mouth, they hide their hands under cloth or in long sleeves and touch each other’s fingers to communicate the price. It is said this old tradition can date back to Qin dynasty of 2200 years ago when foreign traders took their animals to the market in Xianyang, who bargain with Chinese in this special way.BR4Silk Road Adventure & Private Tours - Silk Road China Tours
