Dear Friend. Greeting from Pakistan: We have 8 people to willing short visit to Kashgar mid July/Aug. What is the weather?

The weather in Kashgar in mid-July/August is in summer. The general temperature ranges from 19 degree to 32 degree Celsius. It is hot and the ultraviolet rays are strong in Kashgar in summer. So I would suggest bringing the sunscreen.
