Sitting at an elevation of more than 4,500 meters, Tibet's Nagri, where the famous Himalayas Mountains, Kangdese Mountain and Gala Kunlun Mountain meet, is known as the "remotest land in the world".

Every year, devout pilgrims at home and abroad pour into Nagri to pay homage to the holy mountains and lakes.

Passengers find it difficult to get an air ticket in and out Nagri as each plane could only allow at most 50 to 60 passengers, 30 in summer days, because of the adverse weather.
