Newest Wonders of the World: Xinjiang Tianshan

Leading Group for WNH of Xianjiang Uygur

Xinjiang Tianshan, China

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.
