Xinjiang Tianshan, China
The snow-covered peaks of the vast Tianshan range—one of the largest in the world—form a striking contrast to the high deserts that surround it. Linked geologically to the Himalayas, this area supports beautiful glaciers, pristine forests and meadows, and clear lakes and rivers. Of the world’s estimated 2,500 living snow leopards, two-thirds of them can be found in Xinjiang.
