Description: This future railway route will pass through remote areas of high intensity earthquakes, low temperature and atmospheric pressure. Approximately 780 km (485 mi) of the line will be laid at an elevation of 4,500-5,000 m (14,765-16,405 ft), with the highest point reaching 5,072 m (16,641 ft) at the Dangla (Ch: Tanggula) Mountain pass. At elevations in excess of 4,000 m (13,124 ft), the low oxygen content causes high failure rates of combustion engines and machinery, high/low tension electric equipment, and can have serious effects on human health.
