XINJIANG, August 16, China Daily -- Altun mountain is in Ruoqiang county, Bayingolin Mongol Autonomous Prefecture, and was listed as a National Nature Reserve in 1983. It was the first plateau ecological reserve to be established. With 267 kinds of plateau plants and 359 kinds of wild animals in this area, many experts describe it as a natural gene pool, which means great potential value for academic research and environmental protection.
