Kunlun Mountains, China - March 9th, 2009

The Kunlun Mountains can be seen on the left side of this image of part of China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, on the southern rim of the Taklamakan desert in the Tarim Basin.

The terrain on the right half of the image changes considerably, sloping downward and becoming less mountainous.

The radar accentuates the contours of the land around the Yarkand River as it flows northwards, down from the Kunlun Mountains.
