The No. 1 glacier is the source of the Urumqi River. It is located in the Tian Geer Mountain in the southwest of the city, and there are many modern glaciers of various sizes. Due to the concentration of modern glaciers, the glacial landforms and sediments are very typical, and the remains of ancient glaciers are well-preserved and clear. Therefore, Glacier No. 1 has the reputation of "glacier fossils" and has become a perfect location for observation and research of modern glaciers and ancient glacial relics in China.
