Tanggula is the dividing line between Qinghai and Tibet, with an altitude of 5231 meters. There are monuments and landmarks at the mountain pass. It is the only way to enter Tibet along the Qinghai Tibet highway and the birthplace of the Yangtze River. Tanggula pass is the natural boundary between Qinghai and Tibet, with an altitude of 5231 meters. It is the highest highway in the world.

The main peak of Tanggula Mountain, gladandong, with an altitude of more than 6000 meters, is the source of the Yangtze River. Kekexili no man's land under its feet is a happy pasture for endangered wild animals such as Tibetan antelope. 4、 On the plateau of Wujian, the rivers condense into crystal glaciers, and the waves are silent into silent ice sculptures. Once roaring and raging, the turbulent rivers are sleeping quietly. The snow peak in the distance, the white clouds in the sky and the gentle and beautiful plateau sunset are playing together, creating a picture full of temptation and charm. Tangla is the gateway of Tibet.

Although this section of Tanggula Mountain is the highest elevation of the Qinghai Tibet railway, the mountains are not as steep as people think, so it can be said that they are very gentle. Because the vegetation on the mountain is tightly covered and undamaged, some places are as delicate as human skin from a distance, which is a kind of fairy tale scenery, but the snow mountain and cold wind in the distance will remind us that this is a plateau above 5000 meters above sea level. When we get to Tanggula pass, the railway will be separated from national highway 109. Tanggula pass is 5231 meters above sea level on the highway and 5072 meters above sea level on the railway. It is the highest railway station in the world and the seventh stop where our train will stop at the Golmud Lhasa section. This is the natural boundary between Qinghai and Tibet. This area is a permafrost. The moisture in the soil layer freezes for many years. The weather at the pass is unstable. Even in summer, roads are often blocked by heavy snow. Hail, frost and snow are even more common phenomena. The oxygen content in the air here is only 60% of the sea level. Therefore, ordinary passengers passing the Tanggula pass will have obvious mountain reaction.

The Tanggula mountains

Tanggula Mountain is a famous mountain in Tibetan area. It is also called tangla mountain or tangla mountain. In Tibetan, it means' mountain on the plateau '. It is also a famous mountain god in Tibetan area. It is located in the hinterland of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, adjacent to Karakorum mountain in the West and Hengduan Mountain in the East, with a total length of about 1000 km and a width of about 150 km. Generally, the altitude is 5500-6000 meters. There are many broad basins between the mountains, which are good pastures. It can be divided into two parts: the west part belongs to alpine desert landscape; the east part belongs to alpine shrub meadow landscape. Between the railway and highway at Tanggula pass, there is baskangen peak at an altitude of 6022 meters. The view of Tanggula pass is much wider than that of Kunlun Pass. There are crystal clear snow mountains in the distance, the sun is stronger than the other side of the mountain, the real plateau has arrived! Due to lack of oxygen, the brain will be a little bit of anesthesia and excitement.

Tanggula Mountain is a mountain rising on a plateau of 5000 meters, with an altitude of 6839 meters. The top of the mountain is about 5000 meters of peneplain, and the ridge on the surface is above the snow line (the snow line is 5300 meters). The width of Tanggula Mountain is more than 150 km, and its main peak, gladandon, is the birthplace of Tuotuo River, the main source of the Yangtze River. At present, there are still small-scale Pleistocene glaciers. The edge ridge, horn peak and glacier topography are common. The glaciers formed in the Middle Pleistocene are about 28 times larger than today's glaciers. Small ice sheets can be formed on the surface of the peneplain, and the thickness of the glacial deposits on the two slopes of the peneplain is more than 800 meters. When glaciers melt, mountains rise rapidly. Both sides bear more sand and gravel, resulting in strata subsidence, forming a nearly East-West Lake area and erupting hot springs. Karst terrain is formed on the hillside. There are less glaciers on the south slope than on the north slope, but the glacial topography develops on the south slope. Tanggula Mountain is the birthplace of Nujiang River, Lancang River and Yangtze River.

Tanggula Mountain is the watershed between the Yangtze River and the Nujiang River, and is well-known in China. It is connected with the Karakorum Mountains, which in Mongolian means' high mountains where Eagles can't fly '.
