Recently, in the Altun Mountains National Nature Reserve, the largest alpine nature reserve in China, the warm summer wind has brought life to the silent plateau. Running freely on the grass, the treasure house of the plateau presents a vibrant scene.

  In the Altun Mountains with an average altitude of more than 4,500 meters, wild yaks, known as "plateau tanks", roam leisurely near the water source where the tender grass is emerging.

Tibetan antelope "mothers-to-be" are heading to the lambing area in groups of three or five. They have to arrive at Rabbit Lake where there are fewer natural enemies before the baby sheep are born, so as to provide a safer living environment for the baby sheep to be born.

The Tibetan wild asses, which are good at running, also exert their "specialties", running freely on the vast grassland, and the galloping Tibetan wild asses send up smoke and dust all the way.

  Altun Mountain National Nature Reserve, located in Bayingoleng Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang, is the earliest nature reserve of plateau ecological type in China and even in the world. .

It borders the Hoh Xil in Qinghai and the Qiangtang National Nature Reserve in Tibet. The main objects of protection are the plateau desert ecosystem dominated by plateau ungulates represented by Tibetan antelope, wild yak and Tibetan wild ass.

In addition, Altun Mountain National Nature Reserve also has a large number of rare wild animals such as snow leopards, brown bears, golden eagles, etc. It is a veritable wildlife paradise.
