Beijing : An international freight train departed from Lanzhou, the capital city of northwestern China's Gansu province on May 11 , 2016. The final destination is Kathmandu, Nepal, but rail transport will change over to road transport in Xigaze, Tibet, People's Daily Online reports.

The whole journey will take 10 days and includes three sections: 2,431 kilometers of rail transport from Lanzhou to Xigaze, 564 kilometers of road transport from Xigaze to Kyirong (Geelong Port) in Nepal, and 160 kilometers of road transport from Geelong Port to Kathmandu.
