It was established as a frontier defense post, as well as a developed place in China's remote western frontier; Emperor Wu encouraged Chinese to settle there.

Mars Highway One
Having traveled to the Northwest of China a couple of times, I always heard that there exists a place that resembles Mars. Since there is so little information available about this area, never could I find a proper opportunity until this time, when I happened to pass by during my shooting schedule, so I decided to alter my route and set this area as a waypoint. The road was unpaved thus extremely bumpy from 0km to 76km, judging from the roadside markers, and much of the route could only be searched and traced by ourselves. It was no man's land within a range of 200km, and upon entering there, it was as if we lost contact with the earth, as there was no signal or no people, and we could hardly see any living things. Due to the weather and the peculiar landscape, the air was suffused with flying sand. Accidentally, the off-road vehicle we drove got into an area of sharp rocks, and the tires were punctured, when it was getting dark. If we hadn't replaced the tires before nightfall, we might not have made it out of this no man's land. There are only a few photos remaining because of the extreme weather, yet they are particularly precious.
