Golmud Railway in Real Life

Have you ever wondered what the real places behind the Battlefield 4 maps looked like? As part of an on-going series of articles, we investigate each of the Battlefield 4 maps in detail, finding out where they originate from and what they really look like.

Golmud Railway (Chinese: 荒野遊蹤) is based upon the Qinghai–Tibet Railway (Chinese: 青藏鐵路), also known as the Golmud-Lhasa Railway. It is a high-elevation railway that connects Xining, Qinghai Province, to Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, in the People’s Republic of China.

The length of the railway is 1,956 km (1,215 mi) so, obviously, the Battlefield 4 map represents a small section of it.
