Xinjiang, Tibet, and Kashmir
The region of highest altitude in the world, with the
balance being immense semi-arid plateaus, also at very high altitude. This
region, one of the least accessible on Earth, features a crazy-quilt of
cultures, as various language groups, ethnic tribes, and religious persuasions
have carved out homelands in the isolated vales.
Currently I have: Aqsu, Baltistan, Chü Shih, Gu-Ge, Gun-Than, Jammu, Kan-Chou, Kashgar, Kashgaria, Kashmir, Khotan, Kidara Confederation, Kucha, Ladakh, Lijien, Mogulistan (Eastern Chagataiids), Qara Khodjo, Qarashahr, Qomul, Ssu-Chou, Su-Lih, Tibet, the Tocharians, Tu-Chueh, Turfan, Uighuristan, and Xinjiang.
