Beauty of nature under Kunlun Mountains in NW China

Wild animals such as goitered gazelle, Tibetan antelope and Tibetan gazelle appear under the Kunlun Mountains, showing the beauty of ecological harmony.

The cold winter is the time for Tibetan antelopes to mate. Tibetan antelopes are typical of "polygamy." Male Tibetan antelopes chase, fight, shout and kick their front legs to get their brides. Recently, male Tibetan antelopes can be seen chasing female Tibetan antelopes and managing harem in the area.

Kunlun Mountains, known as the ancestor of 10,000 mountains in Chinese ancient mythology, starts from the east of Pamir Plateau, crosses China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Tibet Autonomous Region and extends to Qinghai Province, with a total length of about 2,500 kilometers and an average altitude of 5,500 to 6,000 meters.

In recent years, with the increasing efforts to protect wild animals in Qinghai Province, the local people's awareness of protecting wildlife has also been improved, which has effectively protected the wild animal resources under the Kunlun Mountains.
