Heavenly Lake (Tianchi Lake) is situated to the east of the Tianshan
Mountain range, north of Bogda Peak, 97 km south of
as Yaochi in ancient times, the lake surface elevates 1,910 meters above
sea level, with an average depth of 60 meters. Surrounding the Heavenly
Lake are snow mountains, glacier forests and grassland alpine lakes,
featuring a vertical
natural landscape belt.
The snow line of Mt. Bogda is 3,860 meters above
sea level, making it rich in glacier resource. Numerous super-glacial
rivers formed by the melting snow and ice, ice bridges, ice mushrooms
and ice fountains can be seen on the glaciers.
There are many
super-glacial lakes and moraine lakes scattered in front of the
glaciers. The vast expanse of mountain land and forests at the foot of
Mount Bogada are also rich in plant and animal resources.
