Mountaineering season opens on Xinjiang's Muztagh Ata


Located on the Pamir Plateau in Xinjiang, Muztagh Ata stands 7,546 meters high. Due to its relatively gentle slopes and shorter climbing period, it is considered an "entry-level" 7,000-meter snow mountain, attracting mountaineering enthusiasts from around the world.

With the climbing season for Muztagh Ata having recently begun, groups of climbers are gathering for training, preparing to make their ascent to the summit.
