Over the years, people have been obsessed with a particular feeling of mystery towards the northern Tibetan Plateau. They are fascinated by this vast land of “peak of the peaks and origin of the great rivers” situated in the hinterland of Asia. Following the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, especially in 1878, great changes have taken place across this land. The northern Tibetan Plateau, comprising about two-thirds of the 1.2 million-square-kilometer land in Tibet and a beautiful pasture referred to as the “Changtang Plateau”, is gradually lifting the veil of mystery to show its beauty to outside world. This is a place of continuous economic and social development, where herdsmen enjoy a peaceful life that is getting better with each passing day. It is a more attractive place for visitors.
