The sacred mountain Khan-Tengri is know as "the Prince of Spirits." Kazakhs revere this peak as a symbol of their ancient Tengri faith, which looks to the sky as the source of the great spirit. It is the highest peak in Kazakhstan and the crown jewel of the Tien Shan Range, which are called the Celestial Mountains. The upper third of the mountain is marble that glows red at sunrise and sunset. The Tien Shan is the most northern range of the Himalaya Mountains.
