X is for Xinjiang

Xinjiang is a province in the north west of China, close to Mongolia and Kazhakstan. It contains the Tianshan mountains which were added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2013 because of their untouched beauty and contrasts, along with being the habitat for a number of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The caption on the reverse of the card reads, "The Spring of Tianshan Mountains - Zhaosu Army Horse Breeding Farm". It is one of the most beautiful cards I have ever received, very large though at 23 x 11.5 cm (9 x 4.5 in) and difficult to store safely.


  1. WOW...so agree with you. It is truly breathtaking.

  2. Let's hope that being flagged up as a UNESCO site will prevent massive intrusion and any detrimental effects on the endangered species.

  3. This does look like Shangri-La

  4. Being there would be amazing.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
