Tianshan Xueling Spruce Forest: A Poetic Vision of Landscape Painting A great green wall built along the mountain, Tianshan Xueling Spruce Forest lies on the southern slope of Tianshan in Xinjiang Province, along the western portion of the Kunlun Mountains and Junggar Mountains. During the summer, Tianshan’s light green grasslands turn a dark green and the scattered houses and beautiful clouds complement one another as if in a landscape oil painting. As you take in the view, you’ll be able to feel a pleasant breeze caress your face and hear the pleasant sound of singing birds.
