There is a "slow train" from Shanghai to Lhasa that takes 46 hours and is hard to find.
Our country has always been a country with vast territory and rich resources, a rich and continuous history and culture. In ancient times, the territory was vast. Or possessions. At time, inconvenience of transportation made these hard-to-reach areas more difficult to manage.
Since ancient times, there have been many dynasties, and these regions were affiliated countries. Although centralized authority was maintained, these regions are effectively autonomous at regional level. This is mainly due to traffic issues.
Because at that time distance was very long, although distance is maintained even now, but due to convenience of transportation, distance is largely no longer a problem. Solutions.
With development of economy, improvement of transportation system, and upgrading of vehicles, these surrounding provinces gradually became what we see today, not only are they no longer autonomous, as they used to be regions, and quite a few provinces , municipalities and autonomous regions have acquired their own unique characteristics.
Many areas are now economically large and powerful provinces in China. Shanghai is most developed city in China and one of China's foreign business cards. We can say that this is economic center of China, while south originally belonged to border areas of province.
For example, Yunnan, originally an independent and self-governing territory of local ethnic minorities, has now become a tourist province in my country. Many people choose Yunnan as their travel destination. Not only is spring all year round and scenery is picturesque, but also unique geographical features, as well as special cuisine and cultural experience of ethnic minorities, which are one of reasons why people yearn.
In recent years, as people's lives got better and better, living standards improved, economy developed, people began to pay attention to previously rarely visited areas. Tibet Autonomous Region, located in inner southwest of my country, is such a place.
Although Tibet is a place with a harsher climate and environment than southern provinces, this does not affect attractiveness of people from other regions.
It is even said that more complex and unique Tibet's environment is, more people will pay attention to it. Now people are more and more interested in traveling in Tibet, and number of tourists is increasing every year, which can be called flock trend.
People don't have a deep understanding of Tibet, and some notable features are probably well known to everyone. The altitude here is very high, average altitude is over 4000 meters.
Many people cannot adapt when they come to Tibet, and hypoxic environment can also be dangerous for people, but such a place, also known as the place closest to sky, gives people unprecedented shock.
Tibet has always been a place full of secrets. There are countless pilgrims here. Many people choose to enter Tibet by bicycle or even on foot, hoping to make some sort of pilgrimage to mysterious culture there, and to devout locals with beliefs.
Many people choose to keep their vows by lake all their lives, or to constantly grow their heads on a pilgrimage. These are not described in books, you can see them with your own eyes in Tibet. .
So for those of us who live outside, although we don't understand such a pious way, we don't know why, but feeling of awe exists from beginning to end, that is why people think about Tibet One of reasons for melancholy.
In addition, due to high altitude and sparsely populated Tibet, there are comparable scenery elsewhere, such as Huguang Mountain scenery, temple monks, evening drums, and morning bells. , a lot of people It wasn't until I came to Tibet that I realized that sky can be so blue, lake can be so beautiful, and too many people say that Tibet is a must-visit place in your life.
People living in developed cities, due to their ever deeper attraction to Tibet, have also spawned many special travel projects in Tibet, because climate and geographical environment are relatively harsh, and altitude sickness is also unacceptable for people. considered.
Therefore, many experts advise people who are going to Tibet for first time not to choose a plane, but rather to choose train or self-driving, because in such a relatively slow process, people will be physically sick by time they arrive. The acclimatization process to an increase in altitude and rarefaction of air.
That's why people ditch high-speed rail and opt for an old green leather car. In Shanghai, one of most developed cities in my country, there is a slow train dedicated to Tibet. It departs from Shanghai. and goes straight to Tibet.
This is a slow train starting with letter Z. From Shanghai to Lhasa, capital of Tibet, whole journey takes almost 47 hours, two days. and two nights. A total of 16 stops during journey, passing through Jiangsu, Anhui, Henan, Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai and other provinces, and finally entering Tibet.
Even though this is a very tiring train, as it goes directly to Lhasa, it is mostly difficult to get a ticket for. It is very unlikely that you will be able to buy a ticket at middle station, because province, this train passes through AND scenery is also very worth seeing. Under temptation of such a mysterious terminal and beautiful scenery, it is naturally ticket hard to find.
