Kunlun is in Qinghai Province, China’s most ethnically diverse and the least-populated province, known for mountain peaks, high plains, sheep herders, wild yaks, temples and small farms. Currently, Kunlun National Park is being developed in partnership with Yellowstone National Park in an effort to preserve the natural beauty and wildlife of the Kunlun Mountains.

The exhibits will present more than 100 photographs showcasing mountain life and park environments. For further information on the presentation or exhibits, contact confucius@umich.edu.
