Altun Mountains National Nature Reserve
One of the largest of China*s National Nature Reserves, the 43,000 km2 Altun Mountain Nature Reserve is a broad basin that contains several large lakes, and is surrounded by a ring of mountains with many peaks higher than 4,000m.
Protected by the mountains, its lack of roads, and distance from any sort of large town (plus the rather hefty fee for entrance permits) the reserve is a safe home for a wildlife population estimated at 15 million, with species including Tibetan antelopes and gazelles, bison, snow leopards, brown bears, wild camels and yaks, and golden eagles.
The reserve is located in the far south of Xinjiang Province, very close to the border of Xinjiang and Qinghai Province, and just a bit north of Tibet*s northeast corner.
Make an expedition into the high-altitude wilderness of the Altun Mountains Nature Reserve, one of China*s largest protected areas, to see stunning scenery and an amazing array of endangered wildlife. You*ll also visit Dunhuang*s Mogao Caves and several other obscure Silk Road stops.
