The real trick of China is now coming to the fore behind the high-speed train started to connect Lhasa, the capital of Tibet with the city of Ningchi. This train was used for the first time as a military transport and carried the army for maneuvers at 4500 meters (about 14,700 feet). Official media also gave this information.

The city of Ningchi is located near the border with India’s Arunachal Pradesh and is strategically important to China. According to the news published in the Global Times on Wednesday, newly recruited soldiers in the ‘People’s Liberation Army’ (PLA) were taken to a practice area at an altitude of 4,500 meters by the newly built Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway. According to a website linked to the PLA, this was the first time that army personnel were transported via the Lhasa-Ningchi railway. The Global Times says that the high speed railway will work to increase the capacity of the PLA.
Rapidly growing infrastructure near the border
China is engaged in rapidly increasing infrastructure near the border. Road, rail and air network is being improved to ease the movement of troops. High speed train is also a part of this. Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Ningchi on 23 July. He was the first Chinese top leader to visit this village on the Tibet border. Apart from this, went to Lhasa by high speed train only. He is also the first president to visit Tibet.
Lhasa to Ningchi in three and a half hours
For the common people, this high speed train was started on June 25. The maximum speed of the train on this 435 km long route is 160 km per hour. Because of this, where earlier it used to take five hours to reach Ningchi from Lhasa, that journey has now been reduced to 3.5 hours. China has always been claiming Arunachal Pradesh as part of India. However, India has rejected this claim at the international forum. There is a dispute between India and China over the 3,488-km-long Line of Actual Control (LAC).
