|Monks and herders walk in front of cranes in Qinghai province's Yushu Tibetan autonomous prefecture Comprar Nike Air Max 98 SE Team Rojas Hombre , following the 2010 earthquake. The prefecture is not only rebuilding its infrastructure but also reconstructing its identity as a tourism destination to shift its economy away from husbandry.

A car crunches into a yak, destroying both.
The driver confronts the herdsman: "Why'd you guide your yak on the road? There's no grass on it!"
The nomad retorts: "Why'd you drive your car over my yak? There's no pavement on it!"
So goes a joke in Qinghai province's Yushu autonomous Tibetan prefecture.
For good reason. Traffic jams' triggers are more likely to have hooves than wheels.
And be steered with "Tibetan guns" - that is, slingshots used to herd.
This is yak country.
That's not to mention the perpetual pinball game of pikas that make every rural road a gauntlet. Drivers veer to try to miss them - "try" being the operative word - adding zigs and zags to rides outside downtown.
One night, a wolf flashed in of our headlights. Our brights cast him in ghostly illumination and made his eyes burn neon.
My first year visiting Yushu's hinterlands, 2011 Superme x Nike Air Max 98 Negras Doradas Rebajas , we stopped to help when we saw an upside-down car. Last year, we saw a coal truck on its side, spilling black nuggets down the mountainside. The driver paced atop the overturned truck's side, clasping a cellphone to his ear.
I can only imagine the conversation he was having.
Piles of stones mark fatal crashes' locations.
They're essentially "slow-down" signs without words.
But roads have continued improving since the 2010 quake pushed the government to invest in transportation and tourism. And the Belt and Road Initiative is paving ways toward better motorways.
"Highways and railways to major scenic sites will be built, environmental-impact studies pending Ofertas Nike Air Max 97 Mujer Blancas ," says a Yushu tourism department public relations official, who'd only give his surname, An.
Plans call for linking Yushu to the high-speed rail system within five years, An says.
Flights connecting to the Tibet autonomous region's Lhasa, Sichuan province's Kangding county and Yunnan province's Shangri-la will begin within three years to expand tourism Nike Air Max 97 Hombre Barely Rose Rebajas , Xinhua News Agency reports.
Low-altitude air routes, covering such scenic spots as the origins of the Yellow and Lantsang rivers, are also in the works, Xinhua quotes Liu Lizhi, director of the prefecture's culture-and tourism-integration development office Baratas Mujer Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Metallic Doradas , as saying. These are expected to chop travel times from between three and six hours to half an hour.
This comes as the city hopes to shepherd its economy away from herding and toward tourism. Husbandry generates little revenue despite intensive labor and has recently been restricted to curb desertification.
Much of the 100 million yuan ($16 million) the central government earmarked for Yushu's development during the 2011-14 period has been used to restore scenic sites and roads damaged in the disaster, says an official surnamed Zhao, with the Qinghai tourism bureau's planning and development department.
The provincial government last year announced plans to disburse 10 million yuan annually from the local tourism fund to build toilets and parking lots, and stage festivals, Zhao says. The money will also pay for personnel training and museum construction.
A tourism-service center will be completed this year to assist travelers and employ locals Vans Classic Slip on Baratas Zapatillas Blancas , she says.
About 120,000 visitors arrived in Yushu in the first half of this year, a 30 percent increase over the same period in 2014. Revenue increased 16 percent to 60 million yuan, An says.
Yushu's tourism department ambitiously aspires to this year lure 480,000 tourists Zapatillas Vans SK8 Hi Slim Console Doradas España , whom they hope will generate 200 million yuan, An says.
Taxi driver Xiao Mei says he moved to Yushu from his native Sichuan's capital, Chengdu, to cash in on the tourism boom.
"The only work here was husbandry and harvesting caterpillar fungus," he says.
"Tourism has brought more jobs. Like mine."
Silk Road journeys
Yushu hopes to diversify not only its tourism but also its tourists.
Foreign visitors have accounted for a slender sliver of the pie.
Qinghai's tourism bureau has this year worked with the China National Tourism Administration - which named 2015 the Year of Silk Road Travel - to run promotions in such Silk Road countries as Kazakhstan Zapatillas Vans Sk8 Hi Leather Blancas Verdes , Turkey and Italy. It recently signed a cooperation agreement with Italy's Lombardy, Zhao says.
The prefecture's tourism bureau has also inked a deal with Nepal in which Nepalese craftspeople will design Buddhist figurines and souvenirs with Yushu essences, An says.
Yushu's history as an ancient Silk Road hub is injecting new vigor into its contemporary allure for international travelers.
It was a trade node connecting Sichuan, Gansu and Tibet. And it was a vital stop on the Tangbo pass, through which Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907) princess Wencheng journeyed to Tibet to marry a local king to enrich political unity. She's credited with bringing Buddhism to Tibet.
