Twice a week, Gesang calls on the plateau villages under the township on a 160-km route, coping with extreme oxygen and temperature conditions. Despite its harsh geography, Tibet Autonomous Region has substantially improved the local postal service over the four decades since China's reform and opening up. By the end of 2017, the postal road network had managed to cover all towns and counties within the autonomous region. (Xinhua/Li He)
