A Ticket To Tibet Set To Further Erode Tibetan Culture

Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the opening of a second railway link within occupied Tibet which will enable Chinese troops to be rapidly dispatched close to Sikkim on the Indian border.

The 253 kilometer route connects Lhasa with Shigatse, which is Tibet’s second largest city, raising understandable concerns of further colonization from China, eroding and marginalizing Tibetan culture, along with introducing environmental pressures.
