NGARI, Tibet -A successful forestation and grassing program in Ngari prefecture in the Tibet autonomous region is effectively battling sandstorms and improving people's livelihoods.

"We are creating magic, because no one has successfully planted good trees and grass in an area sitting 4,000 meters above sea level," 45-year-old Han Junwen, an expert with the agriculture and animal husbandry bureau in Gar county told China Daily.

Han left his home in Dingbian, Shaanxi province, to support the project in Tibet in 2005 and he said making the desert in Gar county green became his dream after he first caught sight of the snow-capped mountains and the blue sky.
