TravelBizNews--

Kathmandu : The Rasuwagadhi-Kerung border between Nepal - China has been upgraded as an international border point, allowing citizens from other countries besides Nepalis and Chinese to travel across the border.

According to a statement  issued by  the Consulate General  office of Nepal in Lhasa , Tibetan Autonomous Region Government Assistant Chairman Luo Mei said besides helping boost trade, tourism and people-to-people relations between Nepal and China, the upgradation of this border point would also aid the implementation of China’s One Belt One Road initiative.

The second largest Tibetan city of Shigatse is about 540 km from Kerung, the nearest Chinese town from Nepal, while the bordering Nepali district of Rasuwa is 24km away from Gyirong.

Kathmandu is 110km from the district. Rasuwagadi-Kerung will be an important gateway for China to connect to South Asia. The Rasuwagadhi-Kerung border crossing, opened in December 2014, has been the only point of bilateral trade between Nepal and China after the Great Earthquake in April 2015.
