Hol Xil is the filming location of the award-winning movie Mountain Patrol. The movie shows the struggle of Tibetan antelopes and the hard life of mountain patrollers who protect the rare animal on the mysterious and charming Hoh Xil.
Covering 83,000 square kilometers at an average elevation of 4,800 meters, Hol Xil is the largest and highest natural preservation region in China. It is also one of the most well-preserved primitive ecological environment areas in the world and more than 230 species of animals reside here and 20 of them are under state protection, including the yak, wild donkey, white-lip deer, brown bear, and the endangered Tibetan antelope. However, due to the demand of shahtoosh cappa in Europe and America, Tibetan antelope faced a fierce and bloody slaughter.
Despite its high elevation, Hol Xil is still attracting many extreme environment hikers for its stunning scenery.
