The Silk Route

Posted by @bhitalks on May 30, 2009


the Legendary Silk Route, the only open trade route with China at Nathu La

The photograph on the left shows the NathuLa Business Channel. These are the gates to the famed trade route between India and China. Legendarily known as the Silk Route, this is the only open trade link on the Sino-Indian border. On the left of this gate is India and on the right, China. The single barbed wire fence can also be seen in this picture, dangling down from the platform where we were standing.

The picture on the right shows a Chinese soldier shaking hands with children on the Indian side of the border. The barbed wire fence can be seen clearly. The platform on the Indian side is a bit higher from the ground than the Chinese side.
