The Kerung – Rasuwa Pass in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region reopened yesterday. Now it is the one and only land pass for trade and tourism between China and Nepal.
Kerung – Rasuwa pass first opened in May, 2015. However, the pass was seriously damaged due to the earthquake in Nepal in the same year. The Sino-Nepalese land route was interrupted.
In April, 2017, Kerung – Rasuwa pass infrastructure and supporting facilities reconstruction was basically completed, as the highway restoration was in order and the power station restarted power supply.
The Rasuwa route to Tibet is not only an important trade route, but also a very convenient land pass in tourism.
