LHASA - Decades ago, millennia-old verdant forests were nothing but a source of income for Jigme, a former logger in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.

However, a trip to a local cypress park completely changed his understanding of environmental protection.

"What shocked me most were the cries of amazement from tourists on seeing the giant cypress trees there," Jigme said. "That's when it occurred to me that what I had been doing for so long might be wrong."

Across Tibet, "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets" -- the concept raised by Chinese President Xi Jinping is thriving in people's hearts. Today, Tibet is home to one of the most pristine natural environments on earth.
