Bilaspur-Manali-Leh rail line to be one of the highest in the world

One of the four crucial rail lines that the Indian Railways is building to fortify India's border with China is the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh rail line. At the height of 3,000 mts, it would not only offer some of the most breathtaking views but would also be one of the highest in the world. The length of this rail line would be 498 km. The rest of the four strategic rail lines are Pasighat-Tezu-Parsuram Kund-Rupai that would stretch for 227 km, North Lakhimpur-Bame (Along)-Silapathar that's for 249 km and Missamari-Tenga-Tawang that would be for 378 km.
