April 12, 2018 -- Gengzhang Village is a small village in Nyingchi, southwest China's Tibet with only 77 households and 318 residents, most of whom are ethnic Monpa. National Road 318 crosses the village, making the travel convenient. But historically, this was not a prosperous area.

Nowadays, Gengzhang Village is known for producing gastrodia elata, organic vegetables, green grapes, and other specialty farm products.  The poverty relief program featuring the raising of Tibetan chickens has also greatly boosted residents' income and improved their lives.
