Thousands of camels head to better pastures in Gansu


Thousands of camels have been guided to better pastures for the coming winter recently, marching in a long line through Changma town in Yumen county of Jiuquan, Gansu province.

There are two types of camel pasture: summer and winter. As pasture grasses die off in autumn, the camels have to be transferred to their winter pasture.
