Sichuan-Tibet Railway

The Sichuan-Tibet Railway will be the second railway to connect Tibet after the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. China had recently completed the track-laying work for Sichuan-Tibet Railway, which will link the cities of Lhasa and Nyingchi in Tibet, near the Indian border in Arunachal Pradesh. This railway line initiates from Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, passes through Ya’an and enters southeast of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It shortens the distance between Chengdu and Lhasa from 48 hours to 13 hours.
