Since the pilot park was established in 2016, the Chinese government

has invested 2.25 billion yuan ($330 million) for infrastructure construction there, suc上海419论坛

h as monitoring facilities, community education and construction of big data centers, according to official statistics.

In 2015, Yushu’s Zadoi county government teamed up with Sanjiangyuan National上海419论坛女神会所

Park Lancang River Management Committee, Peking University and Shanshui Conservation Cen

上海419论坛er, to jointly launch a field conservation station in Namsei village, which carries out a series of activities r

anging from wildlife monitoring to community training and nature watch projects.

“The station’s monitoring work mainly focuses on snow leopards. If the number of snow leopar上海419论坛女神会所

ds is stable, it means the quality of the pastures and environment here is good,” said Liu Xinnong, a stu

dent from Peking University who currently works as a volunteer at the station.上海419论坛女神会所

“Monitoring efforts in recent years have contributed to the lack of data on wildlife in th

上海419论坛e region,” she noted. It is estimated that there are around 40 snow leopards in Namsei.

Conservation prioritized to economic development

A major exhibition examining the pivotal role played by the Tibetan Tubo regime in the S上海419论坛

ilk Road era is breaking new ground, Wang Kaihao reports in Dunhuang.

上海419论坛女神会所When you mention the ancient Silk Road to most people, they usually think of the Eurasian trade routes spreading from Chang’an, today’

s Xi’an and the capital of Shaanxi province, toward Central Asia out through the deserts of Northwest China.

Dunhuang, Gansu province, served as a pivotal crossroads on this networ上海419论坛女神会所

k of routes for over a millennium. It’s also an ideal place to gain an insight into the pros

perity that those trade routes brought when you visit the nearby Mogao Grottoes. This complex of hundreds of cav上海419论坛

es features a host of exquisite statues and murals in a mix of artistic styles from a diverse range of civilizations.

A major new exhibition of cultural relics held in Dunhuang will remind visitors that the Silk Road extended t上海419论坛女神会所

o a much wider area than first believed, covering the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and all the way up to the Himalayas.

This is the story being told through the 120 or so artifacts on loan from 30 instituti上海419论坛

ons and collectors worldwide at Cultural Exchange Along the Silk Road: Masterpieces of the Tubo Period (7th-9th C

entury), a show currently being held at the Dunhuang Caves exhibition hall at the foot of the Mogao Grottoes.上海419论坛女神会所

“Yushu is located at the source of China’s three great rivers. Both the provincial governmen

t and the prefecture government understand (our ecological responsibility) and emphasize pr

otection. We all have this consensus,” said Tobgyal, director of Yushu’s ecological environment bureau.

The area has prioritized environmental conservation before economic deve

lopment, also part of the local government’s commitment to ensure water qu

ality in the upstream region of China’s three major rivers, which influences 20 provincial areas across China.

g province, which dates from 5,300 to 4,500 years ago, archaeologists unearthed a hug

e dam 3.5 kilometers long and more than 10 meters thick. Ruins of the city cover 3 million square met上海419论坛

ers, and the city’s walls are 40 to 60 meters thick. The discovery was made possible with remote sensing technology.

上海419论坛”In the city center, we found a terrace that is 630 meters by 450 meters,” he said. “Some of the foundations are as large as 900 square meters.”

He estimated that the entire city would have taken 10,000 people a decade or longer to build.上海419论坛女神会所

“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many

上海419论坛people,” Wang said. “That indicated a time of early-stage states with wide influence.”

Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from

4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya

o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro

上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.

“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank

of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛

tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.

上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.

“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛

the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”

Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University

上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap

pearance of written characters and metallurgy, have not strictly been used in this project.

Liangzhu and several other early civilizations in China, h上海419论坛女神会所

owever, are known for their highly developed techniques in making jade articles.

上海419论坛女神会所”Some characters of human development are common,” Zhao said. “The

difference also shows there are some unique characters in early Chinese civilization.”

He said Chinese civilization also absorbed influences from other civilizations. Archaeological discoveries sho

w wheat cultivation, breeding of cattle and sheep, and bronze-making technology in China originated in We

stern and Central Asia and were later adopted and acquired local characteristics.

as part of China’s national intangible cultural heritage. In 2008, it was recognized as a public holiday in the Chinese mainland.

The Dragon Boat Festival commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chu state official and poet who lived during the Warring State

s Period (475-221 BC) before the reunification of China under the Qin Dynasty (221-上海娱乐地图女神会所206 BC). He was exiled after

opposing his king’s decision to ally with the neighboring state of Qin, and when Chu was finally conquered by Qin, h

e committed suicide by drowning in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.

The Chu people, who admired Qu Yuan for his loyalty and integrity, threw rice dumplings into the river to feed the fish so t

hey would not eat the body of their poet hero. People 上海娱乐地图女神会所then started dragon boat racing to scare off the fish.

Since then, the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calen
