Hoh Xil, which means "beautiful girl" in Mongolian, is located in the north-eastern extremity of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau and listed as the largest and highest plateau in the world. 

It's China's largest and the world's third largest uninhabited area and home to more than 230 species of wild animals including the endangered Tibetan antelope.

In July 2017, Qinghai Hoh Xil was added to the World Natural Heritage List.
