Nathu La reopens

Nathu La on the Sikkim/Tibet borders of India and China opened today again for trade.

The expected boom in trade has led to the construction of a  hotel at the trade mart in Sheratang on the Tibetan side – with a grand total of eight rooms.

Last year saw around three thousand Sikkimese and Tibetan traders crossing the border to their respective trade marts , moving no longer than fifteen kilometers  in to foreign territory – still a long way to go before thinking of this as a alternative route in to Tibet and China.
