Kerung -Rasuwagadhi becomes int'l crossing point

Posted by Anup Baral | September 02, 2017 :
The Kerung -Rasuwagadhi border point is the only trade route currently in operation between Nepal and China which now has been upgraded as an international crossing point with an aim to develop it as a major junction linking China to the whole of South Asia. The announcement was made amid a function in Lhasa on Wednesday, with senior officials from the Chinese government and Consular General of Nepal in Tibet Govinda Bahadur Karki in attendance. The Kerung -Rasuwagadh border crossing, which was opened in late 2014. This border is the only point of bilateral trade between Nepal and China after the Great Earthquake in April 2015 severely damaged the Kodari Highway in several sections. The Tatopani border point has remained closed since.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
