    Closest glacier to a major city .The Bogda Shan range is part of the eastern Tian Shan mountains east of Ürümqi. The highest elevation is Bogda Peak, at 5,445 m. Urumq is at the foot of this glacier and people can enjoy the view of these snow capped mountains all year round.

    I believe a picture is worth a thousand words, a really beautiful and modern looking city.

    See how this guy was arguing that the uyghurs dont cover their heads and they are not like arabs and other bs that he states. If you look at pictures, it's clear that they do cover their heads and the communists are forcing them no too.

    Long live the Islamic republic of East TURKESTAN

    First, I never said Uighur don't cover their heads, second, it's a picture thread, please take you China bashing and Long live Islamic republic of East TURKESTAN stuff somewhere else, this one is not about politics, it's a city picture thread in picture and video section.

    @WebMaster @The Eagle Please note.

    Unfortunately those back and forth threads sometimes bring out the worst of both sides.

    Just take a time to enjoy the beautiful scenery, faces, and architecture of our Uyghur blood brothers and sisters.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing. @beijingwalker

    You did and I can ask a mod to look at your posts in other threads to confirm this, because it was one of your and other Chinese members, arguments.

    Snow can be a beauty as well as a beast. A snow storm hits Urumqi now and the temperature plummeted below
    -15°C.


    Police cars are sent to pick up pedestrians stuck in the snow

    Urumqi city government built heated glass house at bus stops so passengers can wait for their buses in those winter shelters and stay away from the freezing cold outside.
