Muztagh Ata means "Ice Mountain's Father ". Muztagh Ata (7546m) is a unique massif overlooking the Taklamakan Desert in the Xinkiang Province of China. Surrounded by the Kun Lun and Tien Shan mountains on the north, the Karakoram on the South and the Pamir range on its West, its huge snowy dome stands in isolation on the Central Asian plateau about 150 kms across the vast rolling plains from the fabled city of Kashgar. Its expansive gentle slopes offer perhaps the best paths for ski-mountaineering enthusiasts on any mountain and at over 7500m its pinnacle is a reachable goal for even the moderately skilled climber. It is a favorite and attempted every year by dozens of expeditions comprising skiers and climbers.
