Children watch videos on a mobile phone with a family member in Rasekam Village of Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Feb. 24, 2022.

Rasekam is a small hamlet that perches on the Pamir Plateau, with an average altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level.

Formerly consisted of 12 groups of herdsmen who resided scatteredly in mountainous area, Rasekam village was poor in both transportation and livelihood. Since 2017, the local government has started relocate locals from the inhospitable areas to newly built residential buildings. Villagers are now enjoying paved roads, better infrastructure and neatly rowed livestock sheds. Besides, multiple beneficial policies are in place to help boost locals' income. (Xinhua/Ding Lei)
