On August 2, 1993, Qian Fang and other geologists discovered a metatarsal bone about 15cm in the lower part of the third section of the Qiangtang Formation on the west side of Kunlun Mountain Pass, which was identified as the first metacarpal section of Hipparion. Hipparion lived 1,000-2,000m above sea level, which directly proves that there has been a great uplift in the park.
