Chinese troops hold military drills in Tibet

December 29, 2015

Press Trust of India, December 26, 2014 - Chinese troops have conducted military exercises at the foot of a high altitude mountain in Tibet to test the endurance of the soldiers and the efficacy of equipment.

The military exercise was held on December 20.

Photos posted on the state-run People's Daily showed the soldiers exercising with battle tanks and armoured vehicles at Tanggula located in the Nagqu prefecture which has a very high elevation of 5,000-meters in the Tibetan plateau.

It's a great challenge for soldiers to complete missions in the severe cold of a 5,000-metre-high plateau, the Daily said in a brief write-up.
