After a good rest, thousands of the animals have started their journey to cross the river, a big step in heading for the Three-river-source Nature Reserve.

The antelopes started their migration from Zonag Lake, where they come annually in June and July to give birth to the next generation. Once most babies are able to follow their mothers, the herd will set off for home.

The Chumar river, which lies right on their way back home, poses the first challenge especially for the babies. It's followed by the Qinghai-Tibet highway and railway.

Since the animals are very shy and easily scared, reporters have been learning how to approach without disturbing them.
