On the same day, the Panchen Lama visited the dam, reservoir and hydropower station of the Lalo Project. Knowing that the project can supply more than 80 million kilowatt-hours a year, it not only guarantees the normal use of electricity in Shigatse, but also provides power to the Ngari area, the Panchen Lama can’t help but praise.

There is a fish channel on the side of the dam for fish migration in the reservoir area. It is currently one of the highest artificial fish channels in the world. Through the glass observation window on the dam, you can get a bird’s eye view of the fishway. Because the dam is more than 60 meters high, standing on the observation window and listening to the gurgling water is shocking. The Panchen Lama also tried to step up to the observation window to look down and smile knowingly with his colleagues.

The Panchen Lama greeted Ou Zhu’s family and asked carefully about his life after the relocation. The old people told the Panchen Lama that living conditions have become very good now, and that they live well, and they are very grateful for the care of the party and the country.
