Photo taken on Nov. 24, 2017 shows a base (3,000m) of the Alpine Ecosystem Observation and Experiment Station of Gongga Mountain of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Moxi Township of Luding County, southwest China's Sichuan Province. The Alpine Ecosystem Observation and Experiment Station of Gongga Mountain, which has two bases with an altitude of 1,600m and 3,000m respectively, is situated in Hailuogou valley, the east slope of Gongga Mountain. Sixteen permanent scientific researchers and five monitors work at the station established in 1987. The achievements of the station play a key role in solving ecosystem environment construction countermeasures and evaluation of effect of upstream of the Yangtze River. (Xinhua/Jin Liwang)
