The Chinese Tien Shan. New routes and great potential in a seldom-visited range. Anatoliy Djuliy. The central Tien Shan range in China, south and east of the borders with Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, is a little-known region with many unclimbed peaks from 5, meters to almost 6, meters high.

      There are the Tien-Shan Mountains in the south-east of Kazakhstan. Their Kazakh part consists of northern, western and central Tien-Shan. Its territory is a habitat of rare animal species entered in the Red Book: a snow leopard and Tein-Shan bear. Tian Shan means 'Celestial Mountains' in Chinese and the range does indeed achieve a most heavenly majesty at Kyrgyzstan's easternmost tip. Here in the Central Tian Shan (Центральный Тянь-Шань), a knot of immense summits culminates in m Jengish Chokusu (Pik Pobedy/Victory Peak in Russian), the second-highest peak in the former USSR.

It is in this region that superlatives abound: the highest mountains, the coldest temperatures, the longest glaciers, the grizzliest. The Tien Shan Range in central Asia contains two late Paleozoic sutures. The older, southern suture marks the collision of a passive margin at the north of the Tarim block and an active continental margin; subduction under the latter was to the by: Willy Lin was a student and teaching assistant in Taiwan to respected teacher WANG Jyne-jen, beginning his studies in Teacher Wang was the recognized sole inheritor of T'ien Shan P'ai, also known as Celestial Mountain Gung-Fu/5(6).

The next largest mountain range is the Tian Shan Mountains in China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The name means sky, or heaven. It is one of the longest mountain ranges, and was made when the earth shifted and crashed the Indian and Eurasian earth land plates together.The Paleozoic rocks in the Tien Shan mountains are the remnants of accreted island arcs, mainly from the Ordovician onward.

During the Vendian, the Northern Turkestan domain was part of the Kipchak island arc system between the East European and Siberian continent, separated by the Terksey back-arc basin which had originated as a rift basin.
