The 41th session of the World Heritage Committee on Friday decided to put China's Qinghai Hoh Xil on the prestigious World Heritage List as a natural site. So far, China has 51 sites inscribed to the List.

Hoh Xil, an isolated region in the northwestern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China, covers an area of 3.7 million hectares. As the world's largest, highest and youngest plateau, it hosts many endemic species, especially Tibetan antelopes, which give birth in the site after a long migration.

The Committee holds the session in Krakow, southern Poland between July 2 and 12 and is supposed to assess the nomination of 34 sites for inscription on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
