Kunlun Mountain Ice Soul Rose
The Ice Crystal Rose is a rare and delicate wild rose native to the Kunlun Mountains of Xinjiang, known for its unique beauty and resilience in high-altitude conditions.
With its vibrant colors and gentle fragrance, it is considered a precious and exquisite variety among roses.
These roses are grown in the high-altitude deserts of the Kunlun Mountains in Xinjiang, China. In front of their natural habitat lies the world’s second-largest mobile desert, the Taklamakan Desert, and behind them are the Kunlun Mountains. Beyond the Kunlun Mountains lies Tibet’s Ali region. Roses have extremely high soil requirements, and they thrive in soil with exceptional breathability, making it challenging to replicate their growth environment. Kunlun Roses are watered by melting snow from the Kunlun Mountains, and they grow naturally in the wild, making them exceedingly rare in number.
Discovering the Enigmatic Oasis of Daliyabuyi and Its Precious Desert Roses
The people of Daliyabuyi live as if in the sands. They reside in huts made of red willow branches and mud, which are well-ventilated but filled with sand and dust. Every household in Keriya has a broom woven from red willow branches, and countless times a day, they sweep away the ever-present sand from their kangs, courtyards, and rafters.
On the southeast edge of the Taklamakan Desert, the Sea of Death, there flows a river gently into the heart of the desert. This is the famous Keriya River. Over 2,000 years ago, this river once traversed the Taklamakan Desert, merging into the Tarim River, forming the central and southern route of the Silk Road. Daliyabuyi lies at the end of the Keriya River oasis. The desert rose, having traveled along the Silk Road, arrived in the ancient Western Region of the Thirty-Six States, including Khotan. Over millennia, it shares a common origin with today’s Damascus rose but evolved independently in its respective land, adapting to the local climate and soil. It has become the world’s unique high-altitude desert rose.
In 1896, the Swedish explorer Sven Hedin, during his exploration of the Taklamakan Desert, stumbled upon this place, bringing it to the world’s attention for the first time. However, for several decades afterward, no one visited this place, and the existence of the village seemed like a legend. The vast, boundless desert and harsh environment deterred people. To locate this legendary village, the Chinese government spent more than half a century. It wasn’t until the 1950s that they learned about an ancient tribe in their jurisdiction in the desert, whose origins remain a mystery to this day.
The precious desert rose only blooms for 25 days each year, and the picking time demands great precision, preferably in the morning when the dew is most abundant. Every rose is carefully selected and then secured in our specially designed drying racks to shape its appearance. The petals are dried for 2 days, while the reverse sepals are dried for 3 days. Under the sun’s energy, the plant’s active components are activated, and the rose once again basks in the intense sunlight. Roses dried by the sun are closer to nature and retain their fragrance more completely.
