Just outside Turfan, in Xinjiang, on the road to the Boizikelike Qianfodong, Buddhist grotto, one passes on the left a towering mountain ridge called Flaming Mountain. In the burning heat of the Turfan Depression, the mountain seems to be on fire. The monk Xuan Zhang passed by here on his way to India in 629 and the novel Xiyouji, Journey to the West makes much of the flaming inferno heat of this mountain.
