The Burma Road (滇缅公路)is a road linking Burma (also called Myanmar) with China. Its terminals are Kunming, Yunnan and Lashio, Burma. The road is 1,154 km long and runs through rough mountain terrian. The sections from Kunming to the Burmese border were built with no machine, only with hand tools by 200,000 Chinese laborers(women, children and old men, as young men all went to war) during the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937 and completed by 1938.
