Ancient Wool Trade Routes
The Silk route that passes through Sikkim is an offshoot of the ancient silk route that came from Lhasa and ended in the port of Tamralipta on the Bay of Bengal. This route connected China via India upto Afghanistan. Apart from silk, wool, tea , sugar, salt, copper and horses were the prime products traded through this route. Nathu La and Jelep La passes, along with Kalimpong and Pedong of West Bengal were major access points on this route.
Plan a trek with Jangu Adventures in this ancient route that brought the erudite Chinese travellers Fa Hien and Huen Tsang to India, and in the recent years, took Sir Francis Edward Younghusband's troops to Tibet in his venture to conquer Lhasa.
