Old Silk Route,North Bengal-Sikkim

Category: Nature Tourism


SILK ROUTE:

The Silk Route or Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes. It derives its name from the lucrative trade in Chinese silk carried out along its length, beginning during the Han Dynasty (207BCE-220CE). The Silk Route played a significant role in the development of the civilization of China, the Indian Subcontinent, Persia, Europe, the Horn of Africa and Arabia, opening long distance political and economic relations between the civilizations.


THE SILK ROUTE IN SIKKIM:

The Silk Route in Sikkim is an ancient offshoot of an ancient trade route which came from Lhasa, crossing Chumbi Valley and passed through Nathula Pass and finally took the port of Tamralipta ( present Tamluk in West Bengal). From Tamralipta this trade route took the coastal path and reached Srilanka, Bali, Java and other parts of East and South East Asia.
