Scenery Lhasa Gonggar Airport (ZULS), Tibet, v2. By Anwar Gonzalez.
This is version 2 of Lhasa Gonggar is located more than 3500 metres above sea level, making it one of the highest airports in the world. Its runway, at 4000 metres (4374 yards), is designed to handle wide-body aircraft in the thin Tibetan air. The airport began operation in 1956 with flights to Beijing and Chengdu commencing that March. Recent addition included the expansion of the existing terminal in 2004.
It is also connected to the rest of China which includes cities such as Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Chongqing, Xian, Xining, Kunming, Diqing and Chamdo Region and an international route connects Kathmandu, Nepal and Lhasa. The airport is so far from the city because no flat ground could be near the premises of the city. Also the airpor is located at one side of the Yarlung Tsangpo River that originates from a glacier on the northern side of the middle Himalayas, over 5,300 meters (208,661 feet) above sea level. It runs across the south of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau from west to east, through India and Bengal,and finally flows into the Bay of Bengal. Altogether more than 2,900 kilometers (1,802 miles) long with a catchment area of 935 thousand square kilometers (361,006 square miles), it is the fifth longest river in China.The Yarlung Tsangpo River, in Chinese, Yarlung Tsangpo River means water flowing down from the crest. Found in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, known as 'the roof of the world', the Yarlung Tsangpo River is the biggest river in Tibet and also holds the position as being the river found at the highest altitude across the world. The Great Canyon of Yarlung Tsangpo River is absolutely a highlight. It is the largest and deepest canyon in the world, being 504.6 kilometers (314 miles) long and 6,009 meters (19,715 feet) deep at its deepest. The average depth is 2,268 meters (7,441 feet). Nine Natural Vertical Zones ranging from the Alp Ice-snow belt to tropical seasonal forests are represented in this area. All kinds of wildlife exist here, so the Great Canyon of Yarlung Tsangpo River is regarded as 'the Gene Pool of Biological Resources', whilst enjoying fame as a 'Geological Museum' due to the various geological phenomena found.
