Kashgar - Tianshan Mountain - Shipton’s Arch - Kashgar


Shipton’s Arch lies about 70 kilometers outside of Kashgar city and it is estimated to be the world’s highest natural stone arch. It was discovered in 1947 by an English mountaineer Eric Shipton while he was traveling between Tashkent and Kashgar. It was reported by him in his book “Mountains of Tartary.” The arch once figured in the Guinness Book of Records for its exceptional height, but the editors of the book could not locate it exactly so the listing was dropped. It was only as recently as May 2000 that an expedition sponsored by National Geographic finally rediscovered again!
