Along the No. 306 provincial trunk road with 16 kilometers from the Nyingchi Airport lies the modernized Mainling Farm on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is 38 kilometers far from Bayi town, capital of Nyingchi Prefecture in southeast Tibet autonomous region.

More than 500 greenhouses are arranged tidily in the farm, where farmers work enthusiastically. Well-growing watermelons and tomatoes are waiting to be picked in the greenhouses, and apple trees and peach trees planted in open fields are also fruiting.

Peaches, tomatoes, grapes, watermelons, pairs, apples and plums are the major fruits of Mainling Farm, which are grown in the 544 greenhouses and on the over 3,600-mu (about 240 hectares) open field separately.
