天山 The Tianshan Mountains
The Tianshan Mountains
The Tianshan Mountains, with a total length of 2,500 km, includes the Western Tianshan Mountain, the Middle Tianshan Mountain and the Eastern Tianshan Mountain. The Western Tianshan Mountain is located in the territory of Kazakhstan. The Eastern Tianshan Mountain and the Middle Tianshan Mountain cross the middle of Xinjiang in China.
These mountains offer graceful scenery. Seen from afar, they are snow-capped and covered by glaciers with green trees and grass thriving up to the midway point. At the foot of the mountain, tinkling streams and oases provide a picturesque touch. The area is one of the bases of animal husbandry of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
