Aksu, this city in the north of East Turkestan, was certainly founded by the Kacharians between 3000 years and 2400 years BC, before being assimilated by the Uighur people. Its name means in Turk "white water". It is an oasis on the Silk Road, from the north, which bypassed the Taklamakan desert, between Kashgar and Kucha, but a starting point to connect Kyrgyzstan by the Bedel pass (on the Sino-Kyrgyz border) and allowed to connect Lake Issyk Kul (Kyrgyzstan).
