Tibetan snowcocks caught taking a stroll on a snowy mountain
By Ding Qian
A group of Tibetan snowcocks is seen taking a stroll on a snowy mountain in Qilian Mountain Range in northwest China. There are five species of snowcocks in the world and the distribution of the Tibetan snowcock is the highest.
The Tibetan snowcock lives at an altitude of 3,000 to 6,000 meters above sea level. In order to film the snowcocks, the filming crew of CGTN climbed to 4,800 meters above sea level in Kazak Autonomous County of Aksay, northwest China's Gansu Province, to get the precious images of the Tibetan snowcocks.
Qilian Mountains – a world unto itself.
The Qilian Mountains are a critical mountain range in NW China, home to numerous animals and plants that the country considers to be treasures.
In this series, CGTN Nature takes you on a journey into the mountains, valleys, and deserts, presenting you the true Qilian.
