Zhada County – Small Place of Big Wonders


Sandwiched between the GangdisĂȘ and Himalayan mountain ranges, Zhada is a small county in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region with only 10,000 residents. But it stands as the birthplace of the once prosperous and powerful Guge Kingdom. Today, traces of the ancient civilization can still be found in the ruins of the palaces which date back 1,000 years. However, apart from its historical appeal, Zhada County also boasts a unique landscape formed by constant erosions caused by rainstorms and the Xiangquan River as shown in this latest photo dispatch filed by CRI reporters traveling in Tibet.
