"The destination of the Qingzang road is Lhasa in Chinese Tibet. The Qingzang road runs for 1,937 kilometers at an average altitude of 4,200 meters. Starting out from Xining, an interesting mixture of Tibetan, Islamic, and Han cultures, the camera crew passes through the beautiful town of Golmud, dubbed the "Pearl in the Gobi," Namucuo Lake, which means the "Heavenly Lake," the Kunlun Mountains, where snow falls even in summer, and other stunning places, before finally arriving in Lhasa. Viewers will see the myriad faces of this huge expanse of nature, including scenes of areas where reporting by foreigners had not been permitted. This magnificent travel documentary also shows the lives of Chinese people struggling to survive in this harsh environment and even those of soldiers stationed at the highest military post in the world."
