Unlike GeV photons which could only be detected above the atmosphere, observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) have been achieved with much less costly ground-based telescopes at the South Pole and the Atacama desert in Chile. I'll describe a unique site located at the Tibet Plateau which opens the northern sky for future ground-based CMB telescopes, to search for signatures of inflation -- a period of accelerated expansion in the very early Universe and to probe the structure growth of our Universe.
