The Way to Medog
    Date:08-28-2017 Source: Author:    

 

Aug. 28, 2017 -- Medog County is part of Nyingchi Prefecture in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region. Located in southeast Tibet, it’s on the eastern Himalaya Mountains. The Yarlung Tsangpo River crosses the whole county, where the elevation changes rapidly from over seven thousand meters to just 200 meters in low-lying basins. Surrounded by the steep mountains and churning rivers,  Medog is very inaccessible due to frequent earthquakes, landslides, cave-ins, mudslides, high rain volume, and regional hails.

 

On October 31st, 2013, as  a highway became complete, Medog was no longer the last county in China without a highway and wasn’t separated from the rest of the world any more.
