While India is holding talks with China to deescalate border tension amid bone-chilling winters, China is building infrastructure for its military along the 3,488 km de-facto border LAC.

The next round of talks is set to be held soon to disengage troops.
However, China is aggressively building infrastructure along the LAC. It is developing infrastructure near the Karakoram Pass and Rechin La. India has observed the movement of cranes and building equipment.
China is also building permanent integrated habitable infrastructure terming as model villages across the border .
It has also built a new building and six bunkers in Dejabu area under Yatung County for the accommodation of Chinese army PLA.
Six to seven concrete huts have been constructed at Bumdro near Domsongrong to accommodate PLA personnel during their patrolling activity in Mera La, Thag La and Yangtse area.
Days after building a single lane gravelled at the linking of Sangsam with Chayul Dz in Shannan prefecture, the PLA has now started building a camp.

The Transport Department of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) has also come up with seven projects, including the New Re-construction Project (Control Project) of Lhasa-Rikaze (Shigatse) Airport Section on NH-318.
