Altyn Tagh & the Cherchen River (1896)

Altyn Tagh & the Cherchen River 1896

This map can be found in appendix to the third volume of Труды тибетской экспедиции 1889-1890 гг. подъ начальствомъ М. В. Певцова [Works of the Tibetan expeditions 1889–1890 under the leadership of M. V. Pevtsov] edited by M. V. Pevtsov and published in 1896.

It is a pencil-sketch map of Altyn Tagh Mountain and the deserts located to its north, among which are Karakum Desert and Kumkaty Desert. To the north of the map there is an accumulation of lakes, rivers, villages and settlements. Here the Cherchen River is marked. A note in the west corner of the map marks the approximate location of the ruins of an old city close to the Cherchen River.

Five other maps are appended to this volume illustrating areas around the Cherchen oasis, Keriya River, Przhevalsky Mountains in southeast Sinkiang, Konche River and Bagrash-Kul Lake.
