connecting tibet to main land

In the last post

I was discussing how people of North East now have a newer market to trade to. But now with the opening of the rail link to Tibet, it seems that this market has expanded to the entire China.

In an ambitious $4.2 billion project, 1,140km or rail line was laid at an average elevation of 4000m to link the city of Golmud in Qinghai province with Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. China already has expressed its keenness in linking this rail line with India. If successful, it might lead to the formation of a Pan Asian rail link.

This link will

1) Increase the trade between neighbors.

2) Prove to be a harbinger of peace in the region.

3) Reduce India’s dependence on ports which are already overloaded.
