CGTN published this video item, entitled “Enter Xinjiang’s majestic natural reserve – the Bayanbulak” – below is their description.
The Bayanbulak, China’s second largest grassland, sits at the foot of Tianshan – the source of water for much of Xinjiang. Worshiped by local monks, the river down the mountains is much cherished. To preserve the area, the government is looking to raise environmental awareness in Bayanbulak. For Tiemerbat Darimzhan, abbot of a local monastery, preserving the water source is as sacred as his religion.CGTN YouTube Channel

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
