The argali (Ovis ammon) is an impressive wild mountain sheep native to the highlands of central Asia. Currently, 9 subspecies of argali are recognized.
Found at the juncture of two great Central Asian mountain systems – Tian Shan and the Pamirs. More than half of Kyrgyzstan lies at an elevation higher than 8, 200 feet. The country was an oasis and a welcome relief after crossing perilous mountain passes on the way from China.
