Old Silk route

Where is the Old Silk route in Sikkim:

Sikkim Old Silk Route owes its name to the Chinese traders who used to travel to India, through the Jelep La, to trade in silk products. It is located in East Sikkim, which is in the lap of the North Eastern part of the Himalayas. The East Sikkim Silk Route joins the Tibetan capital, Lhasa.
At present, the trade that used to take place from Jelep La through the Silk Route has ceased and trade with China is carried on through the Nathula Pass in Sikkim. The natural diversity, beauty, and history of this place value are extraordinary, so tourists keep coming and going here at different times of the year. Come and enjoy this beautiful mountain region as you travel the Old Silk Route with us.
