Trade linkages between British India and Tibet through the passes of Sikkim dates back to the late 18th Century. It was the report written by john Edgar the Deputy commissioner in Darjeeling in 1873 that really captured the attention of the British India Goverment with regard to the great strategic and commercial potentials of this route in Sikkim. The Trade through Nathula had been the outcome of the reputed deliberations and discourses at highest administrative levels between the British India/Sikkim and Tibeto-Chinese Goverments.

The Later half of the 1890s, witnessed a fairly good trade of British India with Tibet through Sikkim passes as highlighted by the extract of the diary of the Political Officer for Sikkim. The diary extract of the 16th January 1898 states, “The trade for December are very good, amounting to Rs 3,41,290. This includes a consignment of Gold worth Rs. 16,800- the finest that has been sent in for some years.”
The adventurous younghosband Mission launched from Sikkim with a military escort (1903-04) accomplished its task of reaching Lhasa thereby leading to 1904 Convention that firmed up the Anglo-Tibet trade.
This is plan for a jeep safari for a memorable trip to the mesmerizing corner of India – the ancient Silk Route, which used to connect Lhasa in Tibet via the Jelep La Pass to India and onwards to the rest of the world. In the Travel circuit, this territory is marked as East Sikkim and has been opened to tourists recently. Even now most of the route is restricted area due its international boundary with China (Tibet) and the route is controlled by the Indian Army named as – “Cloud Warriors”.
