Uploader comment: The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite passed over China on December 26, 2012 and captured this true-color image of a beautifully clear day in the Tanggula Range. The Tanggula Mountains are seated at the border of Qinghai and Tibet, China and make a tall boundary, with the main ridge averaging more than 5,000 meters in elevation.
