Posted: Aug 17, 2014  By:SplendidChinaTours.Com

China has completed a new railway line connecting Tibet's capital Lhasa to Shigatse.

Testing on the line, dubbed the "railway in the clouds" is set to begin soon. The line which is at an altitude of 4,000 meters is 253 kilometers long. Construction took four years owing to the varying geographical conditions along the length of the line.

A high-elevation railway in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region goes into operation today.

The line crosses the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon, the deepest canyon in the world. It also crosses a 17-kilometer long area of sand. The entire railway line comprises 29 tunnels and 116 bridges. These combined together constitute over half the total length of the railway line.
