  STS068-157-135 Western Kyrgyz Mountains, Kazakhstan October 1994
Extending from the top center of the image (east) to the bottom left of the image (west), the snow-covered western Kyrgyz Mountains are visible. The mountain range extends from near Issyk-Kul (lake) in the east to the west near the city of Dzhambul. The western Kyrgyz Mountains are rugged with numerous valleys and some peaks exceeding 12000 feet (3660 meters). Along the left portion of the image, and to the north of the Kyrgyz Range, agricultural field patterns are discernible in the Kuragatt River Valley. Wheat is one of the main crops grown in the valley. At the extreme bottom left of the image, a small portion of the Muyun Sand Desert is visible.
