Several female soldiers in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region experienced a special farewell to their military service.

They joined other soldiers and completed a patrol mission to a border marker that is 4,500 meters above sea level.

After tramping over hills and glaciers and overcoming some tumbles, they finally arrived at the marker. Standing in front of the national flag they made a loud oath, saying, "The place where I stand belongs to China," one female soldier said after the patrol.

"We would never have known the [the hardships and the strong sense of pride] if we hadn't gone there," she said.
