awesome

This program is informative, been following this show for a long time

touch the blue sky

hope that if the railroad is extended to India, the increasing tourist traffic will not affect the environment

(You can sense this Indian commentator’s excitement. Even the Nepali Govt asked China to build a road from Tibet to its border)

These are images from a 50 hour ride from sea level to the highest altitude accessible by train on earth through the mountainous Tibetan plateau and some images from around the Potala in Lhasa.

Amazing choice of song for this video!

Lhasa , center of Tibetan Buddhism


3.5 min. video preview: a video travelogue about the skyway from Zhongdian ( chinese province Yunnan ) to Lhasa over the Sichuan – Tibet Highway with terrific views onto bizarre Himalaya mountains and glaciers. A cultural walk through the city of Lhasa with its spectacular Potala Palace, the Jokhang Temple, which is the major religious destination for Tibetan Buddhists and a visit of Serena Monastery , the biggest and most important education place and university for Tibetan Buddhist monks.

The video ends with a travel on the worlds highest train, the Tibet Train. This is a 44 hour train ride from Lhasa to Chengdu, with 1150 km above 4000m sea level, 500 km on permafrost ground, passes at 5150m above sea level and a grandious landscape outside of the train window (grass lands, snow mountains of 6 to 7000m, deserts, highest sweet water lake of the world, highly eroded limestone mountains etc.) ; the ride on the Tibet train became the highlight of that travel.
