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.
In recent years, Changma has developed camel husbandry, and there are now more than 3,000 of the animals in the town.
