The most ridiculous thing on the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway -- here is the border between Xinjiang and Tibet (Jie-shan in chinese means "Border Mountain"). On the sign it said "Altitude: 6700m". However, my GPS said it was merely 5206m! This fabricated altitude number has scared too many people, also gave faked proud to many others.
