More heavy snowfall is expected in the next few days.
Avalanches have again blocked roads leading to a remote tourism spot in China's far west Xinjiang region, with the area on alert for more snowstorms this week.
One-way traffic has been restored on some roads but others remain closed after heavy snow that began on Sunday triggered avalanches near the Kanas scenic area in the Altay mountains, traffic police said on Monday evening.There were 13 avalanches on highways in the area on Sunday and Monday,
according to its management committee. The scenic area is in the northern prefecture of Altay, which borders Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.
The committee said the deepest avalanche was 5 metres, while the widest spanned 1km.
There had been no reports of injuries or vehicle damage.
