Across The Tian Shan
(Tianshannet) Updated: 2006-June-9 09:57:45

Originating in the great conjunction of mountains that form the Chinese, Kirgizstan, Kazakistan frontier, the Tian Shan or Heavenly Mountains run eastward with the Zhungar basin to the North and the sands of the Takla Makan laying to the South. This exquisite forest clad range continues across the Chinese province of Xinjiang until it finally peters out in the sands of the great Gobi desert.

Close to the Kirgiz border stand the sublime peaks of Tomur Mountain(7445m.) and Hang Tangri(6995m.), the highest peaks of the range.

Skirting the buttresses of these sentinel like towers, a rare opportunity is offered to walk amidst the rugged terrain of their extensive glacial systems.

A full week trekking is offered in this virtually unexplored region. Additional visits to areas of cultural and historical interest on both sides of the Tian Shan make this program a truly memorable experience.
