After I visited Lanzhou, I took the train from Lanzhou to Lasha, and the train will go through the Tibet Plateau. The average height of Tibet is more than 4 KM, the highest mountain Everest is also in Tibet plateau. Actually, we all believe that Tibet is a place which is nearest to heaven.
There’s no better way to wittness the greatness of Tibet plateau on Qingzang Railway. On the train, you can see Tibet in a whole picture quietly. The railroad on the Tibet took around 5 years to complete. Before the railroad project, Tibet and mainland China are totally two seperate world. In Tang Dynasty, when Wencheng Princess married to Songzan Ganbu, it took her three years to travel from Changan to Lasa, in contrast, the train will take only 1 day in the same journey.
When I first saw this vast land from th train, my head had some pictures about the ancient people walking or riding on the horses on the Tibet plateau for living, traveling, and love.
If you want to see the marvelous nature beauty, you should come to Tibet plateau. From Xining to Lasa, there are different wonderful views.
When the train depart from Xining in a short time, you can see Qinghai Lake. This is the biggest inland lake on earth.
As the train advancing to Lasa, the view changed dramaticaly. Large grass land and mountains will jump into your eyes. You can see many animals here, such as Yak cows, sheeps, horses, etc.
As the train keep moving forward, the higher of the landscape is. You can see many huge mountains topping with snow. Someone on the train have some discomfort because of the low pressure and lack of oxgen.
However, as the train approaching Lasa, the hight is around 3500 meters, and large areas of the oilseed flowers are there again. You can also see more villages and people.
When I traveling on the train from Xining to Lasa, I have a glimse of how Chinese government focusing on building the infrastructure and how these infrastructure benefit people.
Qingzang railway connects Xizang to inland China more closely, and merchandise and people are transported faster. On the vast Tibet plateau, you can also see the cellsite, power tower, etc, which to make sure that every one can enjoy the information and power consumption even there are not so many people in this large area.
In the last 30 years, China has tremendous success in the economy, especially in the infrastructure field. I think that’s the key why Chinese economy developed so well and why I have confidence that Chinese economy will have more bright future. Because China has build the exceptional railway, high speed road, information infrastructure to support the merchandise, information, people circulating. China will be the most th ideal place to make business.
