China restores ancient Tibet ruins

Help

The Chinese government is investing $8.9m to restore and preserve the ancient Guge Kingdom ruins in Tibet.

It is estimated that the project will be completed in five years making the 10th Century site more resilient to natural disasters.

Increased rainfall in the dry region over the past decades caused cracks on the walls and landslides.
