The morphological features of the relief of the Western Tien Shan are outlined. It is pointed out that the high-altitude belt of the alpine relief is home not only to relicts of pre-orogenic planed surface but also to relicts of glacial planation surface, and to exposured weathering fronts. The relief of submontane belts with arid morphosculpture, and with the occurrence of local near-valley planed surfaces is described.
