Two-thirds of the Tianshan Mountain range, which stretches across Eastern Europe and Asia, lies within China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The Xinjiang Tianshan encompasses a wide range of landscapes, including canyons, snow-covered peaks, wetlands and glaciers. It also serves as a habitat for endangered species such as the snow leopard.
