Regardless of the extreme coldness, oxygen deficiency and other unfavorable conditions, construction workers are setting up electric wires for the Qinghai-Tibet AC/DC Interconnection Project in the permafrost region of Danggula Mountains at an elevation of over 5,200 meters.

As planned, power pylons and wires for the Qinghai-Tibet AC/DC Interconnection Project will be all set up in 2011 and put into operation in 2012.

Dubbed as the "power road to heaven", the Qinghai-Tibet AC/DC Interconnection Project is one of the 23 key projects for the Western Development Drive. After its completion, the project, the biggest power transmission project in China will largely ease the power shortage in Tibet Autonomous Region.
