The Tuya Range is a range of tuyas, located in the Stikine Rangesmarker of the Cassiar Mountainsmarker in the far northr of the Canadian province of British Columbiamarker, near its border with the Yukon Territorymarker and to the southwest of Watson Lake, Yukonmarker, which is the nearest major settlement.

Boundaries and landforms

The northern and northwest side of the range is drained by tributaries of the Cottonwood River; the southern and southwestern flank is formed by Tuya Lakemarker and its tributary, Butte Creek, while the southeast flank is formed by the Cottonwood River and its tributaries (the Cottonwood is a tributary of the Dease Rivermarker, the Tuya of the Stikinemarker). The range's northern boundary is formed by the upper Jennings Rivermarker, a tributary of the Teslin system which is part of the Yukon Rivermarker drainage. The Continental Divide transits the eastern side of the range, though does not touch on its highest summit, Ash Mountainmarker, which is at the north end of the range and is within the basin of the Jennings. The range has an area of and, other than Ash Mountain, includes Tuya Buttemarker, Mathews Tuyamarker, Caribou Tuyamarker, and South Tuyamarker. All of these are part of the Tuya Volcanic Fieldmarker, which includes other volcanic features north and west of the range

Ash Mountain is the highest tuya in the range. The nearby Kawdy Plateau to the west, to the southwest of Kawdy Mountain, is near-entirely formed by the spectacular shield volcano of the Level Mountain Range.

Tuya Buttemarker was the first tuya analyzed in the geological literature, and its name has since become standard worldwide among volcanologists in referring to and writing about tuyas. The Tuya Mountains Provincial Park was recently established to protect this unusual landscape, which lies north of Tuya Lakemarker and south of the Jennings Rivermarker near the boundary with the Yukon Territory.

Black Spruce is a dominant tree in this area; this species is near the western limit of its range.
