Altitudes above 5,000 meters are considered highly unsuitable for humans and could have severe effects on health. At an altitude of 5,373 meters, Pumaqangtang in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region is the world's highest town.
Oxygen levels are 40 percent less than that at sea level, and the annual average temperature of the town drops to minus 7 degrees Celsius. Average life expectancy stands at only 49.5 years.
The construction of a power transmission project, which began on April 6, is tackling some of the most challenging parts of the town. The project aims to bring electricity to some of the most remote mountainous areas in Tibet. It is scheduled to be completed in September.
