Kongur Tagh ( Kongkoerh, Gōnggé'ěr Fēng ) is the highest mountain in the Xinjiang Region of China
Kongur Tagh is located to the north of Mustagh Ata
Kongur was not discovered
until 1900 by Europeans due to its remoteness and being hidden by nearby peaks.
 However it has now become more accessible through the building of the Karakorum Highway
 from Pakistan to China passing close to Tashkurgan and Karakul Lake.
