Xinjiang is unlike any other corner of China. The Silk Road confluence of Uiguhr, Kazakh, Russian, Tajik, Afghan, and Han cultures enriches the province with languages, foods, eye colors, and personalities you won't find elsewhere in the Middle Kingdom.

Vast desert and snowy mountains.

Featured Route For Xinjiang Province

The Wolf & The Medallion (AKA For Whom The Bell Tolls) 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  Asia : China : ... : Small Bell Hill
Great route. Starts on a slab passing three bolts(.10), then trends left into crack system followed all the way to summit ranging from fingers to off-width for eight pitches. Mostly enjoyable 5.9 climbing with a harder move or two on pitch three. Pitch two is a fantastic rope stretcher of flared thin hands and fingers....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
