Li Dan, a 40-year-old community worker from Henan Province, was touched by a photo showing Chinese border soldiers standing on duty against wind and snow in 2013, and started mailing goods to Chaguola, a Chinese border post in Tibet.
In 2015, Li started sending food, medical supplies and other daily necessities to another outpost in Zhanniangshe, which is dubbed the "post on the cloud" on the southern foot of the Himalayas.
Soldiers overlooking the 4,655-meter Zhanniangshe post received average of 6 packages a year. However, they only knew Li's name and phone number, which are a must for sending parcels in China.
The public began searching for Li for years after the story emerged. However, Li kept silent.
However, she broke her silence on February 8, 2018, when she met with soldiers at the Zhanniangshe post for the first time via a video chat on Wechat.
