Dangtong Village of Qiuwo Town, Ngamring County, is located 16 km northeast of the county seat. Dogxong Zangbo, a tributary of the Yarlung Zangbo River, flows through the village, bringing abundant water resources to it. The village builds canals to divert Dogxong Zangbo's water to irrigate crops.

In 2018, with the support of 3 million RMB from aid-Tibet project, Dangtong Village has renovated and built several vegetable greenhouses, increasing its number of greenhouses to 16, which cover an area of 3,200 ㎡. More than 10 kinds of vegetables, such as cucumber, pumpkin, green pepper and cowpea, are planted and sold to surrounding villages and even to Ngamring County, which brings considerable income to local villagers.

The village plants grass and has other cooperative economy, too. At the end of 2018, among all 112 households in Dangtong village, except 4 deeply impoverished households who still receive social welfare subsidy, others have been lifted out of poverty.
