Qinghai-Tibet Railway will open to traffic on July 1 and trains will climb up the World Ridge. Nonetheless, it will not have much impact on yaks, a traditional means of transportation in Tibet. Foreign visitors rushed to ride a yak up the mountain at Yumbulhakang Palace, the first palace in Tbet, south of Mt. Tibet which is the cradle of Tibetan culture.

 

Qinghai-Tibet Railroad will open to traffic on July 1 and trains will climb up the World Ridge, bringing the high season of Tibet tourism ahead. Pictured: a tourist with a long braid on the pedestrian street in front of Jokhang Temple Monastery in Lhasa on the 21st.
