bum la pass - indo china border
the blue flags at the background is the actual border between china and india. the building on the right is where people are made into groups and taken to the border. there the army guy explains about the bunkers present on the other side and how they are always watching us. the chinese dont understand why so many people come here. so they had objected to the large number of tourists coming to this place. so now they take us close to the border and show us around. no photography allowed.
