I saw some bridges and tunnels are already built for double tracks.

did China carry out any environmental studies before building this railway ?

because as far as I know its a environmental disaster

stupid idiot
The Indian project goes through high populated regions which means more time and money acquiring lands for the project. The Tibet HSR goes through mostly less populated lands. Would not be fair to compare the two projects.
Lol
like China hsr don’t go through population center

This train is pumping oxygen into the train cars, most be a specially designed and manufactured bullet train exclusively for Tibet.

Damn....that's some magnificent views/landscape. Need to visit this place one day, guess the views from the train alone will be worth it.
Foreigners need to obtain permission to enter Tibet. Places close to the border may prohibit foreigners from approaching.

Impressive! Cannot believe it's a few kms over the ridge.
More impressive is how they completed it quietly.
I notice one of our ethnic cousins.. a Lhoba lady in one of the photos.
