Rail link to ex­tend to In­dia, Nepal bor­ders by 2020

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

China plans to ex­tend a rail­way line link­ing Ti­bet with the rest of the coun­try to the bor­ders of In­dia, Nepal and Bhutan by 2020 once an ex­ten­sion to a key site in Ti­betan Bud­dhism opens, a State-run news­pa­per re­ported on Thurs­day. China opened the rail­way to Lhasa in 2006, which passes spec­tac­u­lar icy peaks on the Ti­betan high­lands, touch­ing al­ti­tudes as high as 5,000 me­ters, as part of govern­ment ef­forts to boost devel­op­ment.
