China's crazy train project to connect Istanbul to Tibet

China's crazy train project will connect Istanbul to Tibet: China is starting railway work between Nepal and Tibet. The train, which will pass through the tunnels to be opened under the Himalayas, is planned to come into service in 2020. A person who flies directly from Istanbul to Kathmandu with the project will be able to reach 'Forbidden City Tibet' by train.

China, which has recently accelerated its railway investments, is preparing to set an engineering record to increase tourism in the region. Today, there is a railway line between China Qinghai Province and Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. But the line ends in Lhasa. The reason for this is that the Himalayas did not allow it. China pushed the button to extend the nearly 2.000-kilometer line to Nepal's capital Kathmandu. Nepal and Tibet will be connected to a tunnel that will pass under the Himalayas, with the project described by the Chinese authorities as the biggest engineering move of the last period.


While the project is expected to be completed by 2020, no explanation has been made regarding its cost. Nepal, which has the potential to be one of the most lively countries of the region in terms of tourism, has approximately 8 peaks over 14 thousand meters. This makes the country a unique place especially for those who are climbing. While it is stated that Tibet wants the project in question, it is expected that the China-Tibet relations, where tensions have not been missing for a long time, will now completely recover with this project.

Direct flight to Nepal

Turkish Airlines started direct flights to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. There is a lot of interest in expeditions. Those who want to go to Tibet from here have to board the plane from Lhasa. This is not always convenient in terms of hours, but the Lhasa-Tibet flights are very expensive compared to the distance. reach.
