The imposing Tibetan Plateau is located in the central southern part of the Eurasian continent, with an average elevation of more than 4,000 meters. It is the highest plateau in the world and is known as the "Roof of the World". Located on this highest terrain in the world, Tibet has been endowed with a series of unique natural characteristics, due to high altitude, young history, and unique geographical location, and formed a distinctive plateau and mountainous natural landscape, including alpine shrubs, meadows, alpine grasslands, alpine deserts, and alpine cushion vegetation. Accordingly, in Tibet, unique vegetation and animal species have evolved, all of which have special plateau features. According to statistics, Tibet has 118 species of mammals, 473 species of birds, 49 species of reptiles, 44 species of amphibians, 61 species of fish, and more than 2,300 species of insects. Tibetan antelopes, wild yaks, kiang, and argali are rare animals of Tibet. They are all protected Tibetan animals and have high ornamental value.
